“I MET THE KING: About 2am this morning, I was waiting to fall asleep. That’s how I saw King Sunny Ade on Darey’s instagram Live. We had been billed to perform in the same show. I lost it a little bit and jumped out the now useless bed. Quickly, I got dressed and rushed out of my room to meet baba. As per normal dubs, I prostrated flat in front of him, and waited till he said “Adekunle Gold omo mi, dide”. HE KNOWSSSS MEEE BY NAMEEEE 😱😱😱😱. That’s when I started yarning, rambling and everything, with my heart palpitating, about how he’s one of my biggest influences and how his stage performances help me a lot etc. In the middle of our gist, baba started singing “My Life”. OMG. Homie was about to pass out. 😱😭😱😭😱. I sharply grabbed my phone and asked him to sing it again. He did. To cut the pretty long story short, I lost it (again). Baba prayed for me and gave me golden advice. The one that hit home the hardest was, “Never Copy anyone. Stay true to yourself like you’ve been doing.” “I should fire someone, because I told them I wanted to watch your performance”. KING said. Dreams come true, you see.” He wrote on Instagram.
