King Sunny Ade
The Sunny on Sunday concert of King Sunny Ade, Juju maestro, had a lot of great performances as well as a few surprises.
One of the most talked-about aspects of the concert was the auction sale of the legend’s Fender guitar for N52.1 million.
Although the initial auction price was N9m, many in the crowd were shocked when the bidding war intensified and the price tag was continuously raised.
Victor Ehikhamenor, artiste and writer, was responsible for designing the now-historic guitar.
