Olutobi Johnson, aka Toba Chung, was a Flemo Park souljah (as they spell it) who died in a shootout at the young age of 26, on April 22, 2003. He was a part of the Guilty Crime Posse / Productions (G.C.P), and was one of their most talented reggae / r&b artists.
It's just my environment, that make I so violent. Soooooo violent. I'm asking for forgiveness. -- Toba Chung in his song "Father, Forgive Me"
Toba had one thing to say and one thing to hide while he lay dying on the floor of a bar from a rain of bullets.
"Tell my kids I love them. And I'm sorry."
But when he was asked who shot him, he smirked.
Eight-hundred people filled the seats and stood at the back of the sanctuary of Toronto's Bethlehem United Church of Jesus Christ to say goodbye to a 26-year-old man mowed down in a gunfight.
Only the physical body is dead, a mourner said.
Toba Chung is not.
Toba is buried in a cemetery not too far from his Flemingdon Park neighbourhood.
May he Rest In Peace.
