King Sunny Ade, A portrait

I've always wanted to get a portrait of the King of Juju music. All the time I've covered an event where he's been invited to perform I've never been close enough.

Wow!! I grew up listening to his music!!

On a side note, what a testament to the MK II's low noise capabilites! ISO is 5000, and the picture is still crisp!
Lovely. King Sunny Ade! This shot speaks volumes to all of us..
King Sunny Ade is a blessing to the black race. A man with so much robust capacity for hard work, epitome of excellent craftmanship, and eminently rated as one of the first 100 greatest guitarists in the world, has consistently made Africa proud. An enthralled foreign observer was once at a loss with words. He enthused: "KSA as a musical riot on stage." Visit web: www.outskirtspress.com/kingsunnyadethelegend and read the synopsis of a Book on this legend recently nominated for ARSC award in USA for Excellence in Historical Record Research. It is entitled KING SUNNY ADE THE LEGEND!- Cultural Communication via a genre of African Music, and you will know that KSA is an icon of no mean repute. He is a divine gift for the entertainment world.
