THE hope of Gabriel Ayanniyi Adelaja, one of the band boys of King of World Beats, King Sunny Ade (KSA), to visit the United States on a performance tour has been dashed. Gabriel died in a motor accident alongside another band member simply known as Omo Olope on their way to Eruwa for KSA’s video recording on Tuesday.The tragic incident
may have dashed the hope and dampened the morale of other band members who have already made preparations for the tour which is expected to start in April.
The late Gabriel, a younger brother of ace Juju singer, Tunde Mic-Abel, was one of KSA’s talking drummers.
The late drummer, who hailed from Isara- Remo in Ogun State has since been buried on Wednesday at Sango Cemetary, Ibadan.
