Juju music maestro, King Sunny Ade in his latest album has shown why lovers of his style of music may never grow tired of any work from him.
His latest work, Ayo Owuro (Morning Joy), is another classic from the master crooner himself.
King Sunny Adeâ€™s fourth track in the five tracker is a 16 minute dedication to the quintessential African businessman, Dr Mike Adenuga Jr (C.O.N.). Sunny Adeâ€™s rendition of the track dedicated to the business mogul sets him apart as the master of what Yoruba music lovers call alujo (danceable) Juju genre.
It is simply irresistible as anyone who listens will take to moving to the rhythm of the music in appreciation of the beauty of the song.
Sunny Ade describes Dr Adenuga as Giwa tin se ile, Giwa ti n sâ€™oko (the leader who is excellent in all areas) and adds that he has been exceedingly successful because â€œko te lowo onile, ko baje lowo alejoâ€ (he is loved by everyone).
Elsewhere, he sings of the sterling qualities which are not usually possessed by many businessmen in entirety.
These include aje (acumen), owo (money), ola (wealth) and iyi (influence). It needs no restating that Dr Adenuga possesses all of these in plenteous measure. The legendary generosity of Adenuga is also not lost on KSA.
KSA does not limit himself to the persona of the Globacom Chairman alone. He sings about the Second National Operator in a way that may soon become an anthem of sort.
True to his electrifying style of Juju, King Sunny Ade made excellent use of electric guitars and synthesizers and achieved such a perfect synchronization with his vocalists that the voices seemed to merge into a single, sonorous rendition, a seamless appraisal of the subject in focus.
The vocal styles often impose deep cultural influences, a medley of the old and the modern, all blending to produce a masterpiece which will be unrivalled for some time to come.sman.
