Legendary juju music icon, King Sunny Ade clocked 68 years few days ago. At such age, KSA who is one of the pillars of Nigerian music industry and has also been nominated severally for the Grammy awards with over 100 albums to his credit is still bubbling with life.
In a recent interview he shared his feeling at 68 and why he plans to do more collaborations with young artistes.
" I thank God for sparing my life. In the last one year, I have never had any cause to be hospitalised and my music has not stopped either. This year is a little bit better than last year. I will thank God for my life that after all the toiling and hustling for survival, someone would look into my eyes and tell me that I am looking healthy."
On intending music collabo with the young artistes, he said, "recently, I was on stage with Wizkid, Olamide and other artistes at Mo’Abudu’s birthday anniversary. I am in the family of the new generation of artistes. Any artiste that wants to do collaboration with me, I am ready to do so with him.
Recently too, I was on stage with D'banj. We did not rehearse together to perform on stage. I didn’t even know much about the song that we performed. But when D’banj came on stage, there was no room for us to rehearse. I simply told him to play any song that he wants to play, and I would flow with it. And that was what I did. Interestingly, the song I sang was composed on stage."
The well respected music lord also revealed how his family copes with his busy schedule.
"I still thank my God for holding my family together for me. When you are serving humanity, your family suffers a lot. This is because when my children are going to school, I will be returning home to sleep. And by the time, they are returning from school, I would be on my way out of the house."
