COSON has promised to ensure that Ras Kimono is buried like the great star that he is and that his memory is never forgotten.

The Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) is the organization responsible for ensuring that revenue from musical artistes’ works get to them while alive and goes to their family after their death.

The news of the reggae icon’s death left members and management of the organization in shock on Sunday, according to COSON Head of Public Affairs, Chibueze Okereke.

This is also because Ras Kimono Onwubuya was a member of the society and frontline member of the COSON Board.
