Legendary musician King Sunny Ade has attained old age and isn’t entirely as active as his hay days but this is not to say that his legacy is taking a hit.
One of the veteran musician’s sons, Ademola Adegeye, takes the reigns from his father and seeks to reach even greater heights than his old man.
In a recent interview with BBC Yoruba, the young man opened up about the journey so far and some of the challenges that have greeted him on the way to the top.
On his decision to pursue a career in music, Ademola disclosed that he has always loved music since he was little but his father had strict rules for all his children and made it clear that their education comes first.
Ademola said it didn’t stop him from practising on the side but he could only follow his heart’s desire after completing his education.
The young man said after his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme, he approached his father and asked for blessings before launching his music career properly.
In a different portion of the interview, Ademola disclosed that he enjoys performing a mix of his songs and father’s songs whenever he makes appearances at events.
He, however, added that he only reveals his true identity after people have come to appreciate his performance.
On his kind of music, the young man said he does a mix of juju, R&B and even delves into gospel music.
