The Urban Buzz sends heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and fans of Robert “Kool” Bell, leader of the legendary band, Kool & the Gang on the loss of his wife Sakinah, who had been suffering from a serious health challenge. Kool and Sakinah were soulmates. They were together most of their lives! Their son Prince Hakim was working on Music in her honor. “R.O.Y.A.L.T.Y.” was the first single and was thrilled she got a chance to hear it! Her service will be held tomorrow. May she rest in peace.
