The people of Niger Delta have described the late Ras Kimono as a gifted son of the region who made Nigeria proud.
In a tribute by Comrade Joseph Evah on behalf of the region ahead of the reggae icon burial, he urged Delta State government and other governments in the region to establish Halls of Fame to document the activities of great men and women from the area.
“Our region mourns this special breed of creative art, a world class master of the reggae brand loved by the old and the young across the globe. We weep bitterly because Ras Kimono still had a lot to contribute to talent and creative art before death took him away. We thank God, he had contributed his part to advance the level of awareness in our youths that no talent is wasted.
Our youths in Nigeria are showing the world the power of creative art, so, we urge the Delta State Government to immortalize the great star from the state so that others may appreciate his talent and serve as encouragement to the younger generation”, Evah added.
