As part of the activities to mark the 70th birthday ceremony of the king of world beats, King Sunny Ade, A-list gospel artistes in the country have set the stage to celebrate with him in a two-day mega concert.
The event which will be held at Civic Centre, Ondo, will have the current President of the Gospel Musicians Association of Nigeria, Funmi Aragbaye, Evangelist Bola Are, Dunni Olanrewaju, aka Opelope Anointing, Tope Alabi, Bisi Alawiye Aluko, Akin Adebayo, Esther Igbekele, Dare Melody, and others performing on the first day of the event.
While other artistes like Pastor Adelakun Ayewa, Omije Oju mi, Senwele Jesu, Timi Osikoya Telemi, Foluke Awoleye, Yinka Ayefele and Ayan Jesu among others, are billed to perform the next day.
The initiator of the event, Dunni Olanrewaju, further said that Evangelist Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi will be the father of the day.
Olanrewaju said the idea of celebrating King Sunny Ade hit her the day he went for an interview in his radio station. “It was a live programme and the need to celebrate him just dropped and I took it up from there immediately. Thanks to God for the responses of great men and women of God to the clarion call, it amazed me how people responded to the call,” he said.
