Legendary afro-juju musician, King Sunny Ade, has reacted with a rebuttal to insinuations that he dated veteran singer, Onyeka Onwenu, sometimes in the past.
Rumours had made the round that the afro-juju legend, better known as KSA, and the effervescently reverberating veteran, were engaged in a romantic relationship following the release of “wait for me” years back.
However, KSA, during a press parley on his 70th birthday, disclosed that there was nothing between them, adding that the song was just a gimmick to drive home a message for a healthy relationship among the youth back then.
He said, “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.
“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.”
“It is just by his grace that He has made it possible for me to live up to this age. He alone has given me strength to perform. I love what I do and that is why I can never be tired. I came back from the US and I was told I had to perform somewhere and I went. I am never tired and my age will not slow me down.”
