A foundation setup in the name of late legendary reggae artiste, Ras Kimono has been disclaimed by his family.

The foundation named “Ras Kimono Development Foundation” was  disclaimed by Ogemono, the first child of the Rub-a-Dub Master.

In what appeared a platform to celebrate the musician, the foundation was lunched in Asaba Delta State on Saturday, June 15, by individuals said to be lovers the music icon.

Speaking on the foundation, Oge Kimono said “I know that many people love my late father and are willing to celebrate him in different ways. We are most grateful for their show of love and affection. A foundation in the name of my father is a serious project that needs proper consultation with all my siblings and key people connected with the Kimono legacy. It should never be a project for a quick buck. For the avoidance of doubt, I will not be in Asaba for the purported lunch of the so called foundation which does not have my endorsement.”

Kimono’s legacy was celebrated on June 10, on his first death anniversary.

The event which held at the headquarters of the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON), was as in two phases. The first phase was the ”Ras Kimono Memorial Lecture” which held in the morning at the Magnificent COSON House in Ikeja and chaired by the nation’s doyen of labour and intellectual Property law, the 83 year, old first chairman of the NCC, Prof Egerton Uvieghara.

The second phase of the Ras Kimono Memorial Day kicked off in the evening of June 10 with a blistering concert at the famous Niteshift Colieseum, Ikeja. Lighting up the ”Ras Kimono Memorial Jam” was the Nigeria’s who is who in reggae music. From Oritz Wiliki to Righteous Man to Buchi to Dede Mabiaku to Wadada to Oge and many more, backed by Kimono’s legendry Massive Dread band.
