How Reggae legend, Ras Kimono died in Lagos

Nigerian musician known as Ras Kimono and also known as Okeleke Onwubuya,has dead.
He reportedly died at a hospital in Lagos on Sunday morning.
Ras Kimono,  was said to have concluded plans to travel to the United States last night, and he complained of feeling funny.
According to reports, the legendary reggae artist was rushed to a hospital in Ikeja, where he was later taken to Lagoon Hospital on the Island where he died.
Kimono dominated the music industry in Nigeria in the late 80s with his debut album
“Under pressure”, which brought him into limelight.
Among the hits in that album were “Rasta get jail” and “Rum-Bar Stylee”.
He “disappeared” from the scene after travelling to the US, where he spent six years.
Kimono later admitted that his sojourn in the US had a negative impact on his music career.
“The reason I left Nigeria was that I wanted to know how life was on the other side of the river. I wanted to broaden my horizon. When I went there, I saw, conquered and came back to my country. However, any youth who has made one or two hits in Nigeria and feels he can travel abroad to continue his career would only kill his career.”
He started out his career as a student at Gbenoba Secondary School, Agbor, Delta state and later as a member of the Jastix Reggae Ital. Majek Fashek, Amos McRoy Jegg and Black Rice Osagie were also members of the group.
