On Wednesday February 6, former KUSH rapper Emem Ema was at Ikoyi cemetery in Lagos for a funeral service. Looking forlorn and holding back tears, the artiste-entreprenuer was not mourning a close friend or colleague. It was her younger brother Mmenie who was being laid to rest.  The Ema family was thrown into anguish on Friday February 1 when the 21 year-old undergraduate gave up the ghost after a brief illness. ‘He was home on holidays from the UK and he just had Typhoid fever’, said a bereaved Emem. The late lad was Studying Digital Media in Cantebury. And his death comes just a year before the 20th memorial anniversary of ther father who died in 1989.
