Efemena Okedi, the wife of late Reggae artiste, Chux Ohai, aka Ras Kimono, is dead.

The death of the 42-year-old is coming three weeks after her husband was buried.

Ras Kimono had slumped at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport on Saturday, June 9, 2018, and died the following day at a Lagos hospital.

The Under Pressure crooner was aged 60.

It was gathered that Okedi attended a family function on Saturday.

She reportedly complained of a chest pain on Sunday and was rushed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, where she died.

Okedi, who was said to be the third wife of the late music legend, was also his manager and a member of his band during his lifetime.

Ras Kimono’s brother-in-law, Theophilus Ehizibue, confirmed the incident.

He noted that she died from a possible heart attack.

He said, “She died this morning (Sunday) around 5.30am at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. She was not sick and never complained of any pain prior to that time. We suspect it was a heart attack. It may also have something to do with the death of her husband because they were very close.

“She was at my birthday on Saturday, which we celebrated at the Eleguishi Bar Beach.

“She was in good spirit and nothing was wrong with her until this morning when I was called that she had a chest pain. I told them to take her to a hospital. I had gone to meet them at the hospital when I was told she was dead.”

Ehizibue, who was the vice chairman of Ras Kimono’s burial committee, said the death was a big blow to the family which had yet to recover from her husband’s death.

A check on the deceased’s Instagram page showed her last post on June 24 was a picture of her with her husband.

“It’s two weeks today that you passed; feels like yesterday. Rest on my lion, missing you,” she wrote.

The condolences and cheering messages to Okedi turned to ‘RIP’ as the news broke that she was also dead.

“Rest on you both, God knows best you both are in a better place now,” one of her followers, iamzinnybabe, wrote.

Popular hip-hop musician, Eedris Abdulkareem, has been arrested by the police for allegedly beating his landlord, Oladipo Abimbola.

Abdulkareem was said to have been reported at Area F Police Command in Lagos State.

He was subsequently arrested.

According to available information, Abimbola, who owns the property at Valley View Estate in the Ikeja area, accused the hip-hop star of fraud, harassment, and intimidation.

The confrontation that led to the arrest was said to have occurred on January 3, 2020, after the landlord instructed officials of Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company to disconnect Abdulkareem from power source due to overdue and unpaid accumulated electricity bills amounting to N535,000

The artist was said to have stormed Abimbola’s compound over the issue.

The landlord said he was unaware that Abdulkareem was to be his tenant when he rented out the flat.

According to him, Abdulkareem’s wife rented his apartment on behalf of her husband.

He also stated that Abdulkareem is an antisocial and dangerous person who constantly owes him rent and would stop at nothing to carry out his threat of assault.

Although Abdulkareem was said to have admitted having warned his landlord, his counter-accusation was that Abimbola sexually harassed his wife in his absence and refused to respect their privacy by wantonly encroaching on their side of the compound without permission.

He claimed that his landlord has once been arrested for a previous case of sexual harassment against another (female) tenant.

The matter is still with the police.
