A COFFIN which resembled a top-of-the-range car, colleagues who flew in from South Africa and some of the A-listers on the Harare socialite scene…

Well, it was a funeral for a King, in this case, a king of bling whose death, in a car crash, has been the talk of town this week.

It appears South Africa-based dealer, Obert Karombe, lived large and, his farewell yesterday at his farm in Beatrice, was quite a big deal.

There were even reports that some of Karombe’s female counterparts were turned away from the funeral.

Known as Boss Obby, his coffin has left tongues wagging.

Resembling a top-of-the-range car, which was in line with his love for flashy vehicles, the coffin created a lot of debate on social media circles.
