BB King’s funeral is scheduled to be held on Friday, May 29, in Mississippi.

The blues legend died in his sleep at his Las Vegas home on May 14, aged 89.

Meanwhile, a murder investigation has been launched into BB King’s death after two of his daughters claimed the blues legend was poisoned.

Karen Williams and Patty King said BB King was given “foreign substances to induce his premature death” by his business manager Laverne Toney.BB King funeral

Lawyers for BB King’s estate said the claims are unfounded and disrespectful.

However, the possibility of homicide will now be investigated by the coroner and police in Nevada.

BB King was born on September 16, 1925, to sharecroppers and worked in the cotton fields as a child before picking up the guitar.

Considered one of the world’s greatest players, BB King was known for his sharp single notes and vibrato on the electric guitar he christened Lucille.

Known for songs such as The Thrill Is Gone, Three O’Clock Blues and Darlin’ You Know I Love You, he influenced generations of guitar players, and was inducted to both the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

BB King was married twice and had 15 natural and adopted children, 11 of whom are still alive.
