The late Ijaw music icon, King Robert Ebizimor, is to be given a state burial by the Bayelsa State Government.
Ebizimor died in a fatal road accident on July 31, 2014 along Effurun-Warri area of the East-West Road.
Commissioner for Culture and Ijaw National Affairs, Dr. Felix Tuodolo, described the musician as the promoter of Ijaw culture and the unifier of the Ijaw nation through his evergreen renditions.
Tuodolo said, “The government of Bayelsa State, after due consultations with the musician’s families and other stakeholders wishes to state that the burial of the late King Robert Ebizimor will take place on November 7.
“In the light of the above, we are calling on all sons and daughters of the Ijaw nation to come out in their large numbers to give the music icon a befitting burial.”
He said Ebizimor would always be remembered for his philosophical music and how he used it to unite the Ijaw people.
