The news of King Sunny Ade’s upcoming 70th birthday celebration bash is no doubt one of the hottest topics around at the moment and the Ace Juju singer made all his plans known in a recent interview.
The first issue he chose to address was the rumours of his supposed romantic relationship with celebrated songstress, Onyeka Onwenu.
“I didn’t have any crush on Onyeka then. Even before that song, we had recorded some songs together. She was (and still is) just a colleague.”
“She is a good woman. We did that song just for us to teach the young people the essence of having a healthy relationship.”
Asked if he was considering plans of having another wife, he said:
“Haba! How can I take another wife? Is that a curse or are you praying for me? I am not ready for any new wife.”
On the events of his celebrations, he highlighted that:
“My birthday celebration is usually a one-week affair. But this year’s birthday is different; the celebration will go on till the end of the year.”
“I started the celebration with special prayer from the general overseer of my Church, Pastor (Enoch) Adeboye.”
“Later this month, there will be a gospel music concert in my home in Ondo. And on my birthday, which is on September 22, my children will celebrate me.”
“I will also visit orphanages. There are so many activities lined up. I belong to well over 70 clubs and each of this club wants to celebrate me. But the grand finale will come sometime in October with a concert where so many foreign artistes will perform.”
