|Ekiti Popular Musician Elemure Dies, Fayemi Mourns by femmefatale: 8:47pm On Sep 18, 2014|
Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has expressed his condolence on the death of popular musician, Chief Elemure Ogunyemi. Ogunyemi died in the early hours of Thursday at his residence in the Ekute area of Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, at the age of 71.
The Governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Olayinka Oyebode, said he received the news of the death with shock on a day the state was celebrating the transition of another illustrious son and former Vice Chancellor of the University of Lagos,
Prof. Jacob Ade-Ajayi. According to him, the death of the musician, who
positively projected the image of the state and was the first musician of Ekiti genre to acquire a global recognition, is a great loss to the state. He promised the readiness of his administration to
immortalise the deceased as a mark of honour for being a worthy Ekiti ambassador in his lifetime. Fayemi urged the family and associates of the
deceased to take heart and be consoled by his positive contributions to the development of the state.
