    This is so sad. Lagoon hosipital again!! I worry for the medical system in Nigeria. I read elsewhere that he had planned a medical trip to the US this week. RIP Ras Kimono.

      Lagoon hospital didn’t kill him ….his condition did…he may have only been transferred from the previous hospital when the illness was too far gone
