Aralola, prevalently called Ara in front of an audience, said this while communicating her stun over the demise of the Reggae Rastaman.
“I was all the while arranging a joint effort with Ras Kimono, Majek Fashek and other reggae artists.

“His death hits me badly because he was such a humble and kind hearted fellow. May his soul rest in perfect peace,” she said

“I am completely down and surprised because I saw him last week looking healthy only to wake up from my siesta yesterday to hear of his death.
“My condolences to the family and pray that God fills that huge gap his death had created for them and for us in the music industry, ” she said.
it was reported that Ukeleke Elumelu, popularly known as Ras Kimono, 60, died on Sunday in Lagos after a brief illness.
