Reggae legend, Ukeleke Onwubya, popularly known as Ras Kimono, is dead.
The singer reportedly died on Sunday in a Lagos hospital after a brief illness.
In a recent chat with PUNCH, the reggae star said, he had been a vegetarian for over 37 years and neither smoked nor drunk alcohol.
He said, “I have never smoked and I don’t drink alcohol. I tell people I have been a vegetarian for 37 years. Even when my friends were having sex with two girls at the same time in those days, I didn’t join them. I have never done what these girls and boys call threesome despite being famous and I am sure there are other people who have never done that too.
“When people attribute recklessness to youthful exuberance, I get worried because I once passed through that stage too. I believe it is all about your upbringing. The fact that you are young doesn’t mean you should be wayward.” (Punch)
