Efe Mena Okedi, the wife of late reggae icon Ras Kimono, is dead.


She reportedly died in the early hours of Sunday at her residence in Magodo Isheri, Lagos.

Okedi was also Kimono’s manager and a member of his band while he was alive.

Her death comes three months after the ‘Rhumba Stylee’ singer died on June 10 in a Lagos hospital.


Okedi was the third wife of the music legend.

She once described Kimono as “the most gentle and kind Rastaman I know”.

Following his demise, she took to Instagram to mourn him, writing, “It’s 2 weeks today that you passed, feels like yesterday. Rest on my lion, missing you”.
