Internet sensation Ikel Emmanuel will be laid to rest on Thursday, July 31.
Ann Marie Emmanus said that she is now finalising the smaller details to ensure that her son is given a good send-off.
Emmanus said Ikel’s body will be at the Rambally’s Funeral Home on Calvary Road, Castries at 9 a.m. for viewing followed by his burial at the Vigie Burial Ground.
Ikel passed away at Victoria Hospital sometime before 6 a.m. on July 10. He was 33.
A postmortem examination confirmed that Ikel died from sepsis – an illness in which the body has a severe response to bacteria or other germs due to alcoholic liver disease.
He will be best remembered for videos on the social networking site in which he impersonated local broadcast journalists reporting the news.
