 President Buhari Celebrates King Sunny Ade On His 75th Birthday

President Muhammadu Buhari is celebrating Veteran Nigerian musician, King Sunny Ade as he turns 75 today.

The president via a statement posted on a Facebook page of his Special Adviser, Media, and Publicity, Femi Adesina, noted the many achievements of the veteran musician as he celebrates his birthday.

“President Muhammadu Buhari joins the entertainment industry in Nigeria and the world over, particularly performing artistes, in celebrating with legendary juju singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Chief Sunday Adeniyi Adegeye aka King Sunny Ade on his 75th birthday, September 22, 2021. The President extols the courage, foresight, and innovative spirit of the music artiste, who has since graduated into an authority in the literary and theatrical world, sharing his talent as a visiting Professor of Music at Obafemi Awolowo University Ile Ife and championing many development causes.

“President Buhari believes King Sunny Ade’s several nominations for the Grammy, being the first Nigerian for such recognition, brought the spotlight on Nigeria’s multi-talented artistes, creating opportunities for many nominations and an eventual win that further boosted the country’s image among comity of nations. The President notes the focus, discipline, business, and administrative savvy that the guitarist and dancer introduced into the music industry in Nigeria, encouraging creativity and entrepreneurship by setting up a foundation to cater for budding talents. As the multi-talented instrumentalist turns 75, President Buhari prays for longer life and God’s blessings on his family.” (Source: Punch newspapers)
