Reggae icon Bunny Wailer will be laid to rest today, June 18.

The news was shared by Wailer’s son Asadenaki Livingston. Even though he has indicated that the funeral will take place this weekend, he has not given a specific date or time as he hopes to avoid breaching any of Jamaica’s stringent Covid-19 prevention protocols.

There has been some confusion over Jah B’s (Bunny Wailer) estate since his passing, and Livingston has said that many of the people causing the confusion were not family members. Even though this was not mentioned as one of the reasons for the secretive funeral arrangements, it could have been an influencing factor.

He spoke with the media and remained mysterious about the arrangements to come. “It’ll be a private funeral for family members. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, members of the public can still view the proceedings on ‘theofficialbunnywailer’ Facebook and IG platforms,” he said.

In April, Livingston took to Facebook to offer a lengthy explanation about the payment of Wailer’s outstanding medical fees and the apparent confusion over his estate.

Wailer died at the age of 73-years-old on March 2. He had been hospitalised with a stroke. He is recognised as one of the founders of the Wailers and a musical icon. His passing was mounted by fans around the world. The “Reincarnated Souls” singer soared to the heights of the genre and won three Grammys during his lifetime. Sadly, he was also never reunited with his love, Jean Watt, affectionately known as Sister Jean. They had been a couple for 50 years before she went missing on May 23, 2020.
