“King” Sunny Adé

Why is Stevie Wonder tagged on this post? He played harmonica for it, that’s why! I didn’t realize how large of an impact Sunny Ade had on world music or that he worked with artists that I’m very familiar with when this album was picked up, but I’m definitely going back through the stacks to look for his other discs.

“King” Sunny Adé (born Sunday Adeniyi, 22 September 1946) is a Nigerian musician, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and a pioneer of modern world music. He has been classed as one of the most influential musicians of all time.
