I mourn the death of Ras Kimono, our legend whose music further express to the world the talent available in Nigeria. Against all odds he rose from nothing to international stardom. I remember my late elder brother, Tala would pick me up and show me how to dance Rhumba Style. RIP pic.twitter.com/HOuDHsBSt1
