‘Natty Get Jail’ – Ras Kimono Songs We Shouldn’t Forget
Most popular inspirational music artiste loved by students and the masses, Ras Kimono now dead has been a source of inspiration to me and lots of students in my school.
We fell in love with Ras Kimono when our school Principal told us she feels motivated whenever she listens to Kimono sing.
Now that Ras Kimono is dead, do you think all of his inspirational songs will continue to reign till 2030 probably till no one hears or read about him any longer? I can guess but I’ll assume is memory will be passed from generations to generation.
Now that he’s dead, one can only ask, just like he asked in one of his recent interviews – “Who will do it for the people?”
According to 36naija, “This prophetic musician has started making music right from his early age as a child. In this remembrance of the music maestro, I just compiled a list of five (5) Ras Kimino songs that brought him global recognition and made him a “prophet of the masses”.
