The burial ceremony of Nigerian Music Legend, Augustine Okeleke Onwubuya aka Ras Kimono begins today with a lying-in-state service held at the COSON house in Ikeja. Late Ras Kimono will be buried on August 25, 2018.

On Thursday morning, the late musician’s body left the TOS Funeral Home where it has been preserved since his June 10, 2018 death.

A convoy of vehicles with full loads of family, friends, and associates lined the impeccable road that leads to Magodo — the late musician’s place of residence — as the hearse bearing his remains was driven out of the lush environment where the TOS Funeral Home is.

The dreadlocked musician had reportedly slumped at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, while waiting to board a flight to the United States, on the night of Saturday, June 9.

According to sources close to him, Kimono was immediately rushed to an unnamed hospital in Ikeja, Lagos, and then taken to another hospital on the Island, where he later died on Sunday morning.
