The entire membership, Board and Management of Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) have expressed great sadness at the passing on this Sunday, June 10, 2018 of an unflinching member of the society and frontline member of the COSON Board, a great African and great musician, the reggae toaster and Rub – a – Dub Master, Ras Kimono Onwubuya.

Reacting in Lagos to the death of one of Nigeria’s most loved musicians of the last three decades, COSON Chairman, Chief Tony Okoroji said, “Kimono was not just a great musician but a truly fantastic person. He had no angst against anyone and stood for truth and justice at all times. I have not just lost a colleague but a valued friend. This is absolutely devastating.

“I was by his hospital bed at Lagoon Hospital, Ikoyi Saturday night before he passed on, on Sunday. Despite his ailment he was in good cheer and we even shared jokes. I spoke to the doctors who expressed the view that he may have passed through the worst. I was at the domestic terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja on Sunday when I got the devastating phone call that got me screaming like a mad man. I was already checked in for a flight to Owerri. That was the end of the trip and the Airline had to go to the aircraft to retrieve my already loaded baggage.

A condolence register will also be opened at COSON House for the many-many lovers of Kimono to personally express their feelings at the loss of the Rub- a- Dub Master. On the many TV screens at COSON House, there will be continuous replay of the many great performances of Ras Kimono including his unforgettable performance at the last COSON Song Awards. I can assure everyone that COSON will ensure that Kimono is buried like the great star that he was and that his memory is never forgotten”.
