In a statement issued in Lagos on Thursday, the Minister hailed King Sunny Ade’s contribution to the growth of Nigerian music, which is fast becoming a global brand, crediting him and other musical stars of his generation for charting the path for today’s generation of ”Young Turks” in the industry.

He said it is particularly delightful that in spite of his age, King Sunny Ade has remained active on the music scene, thus reinforcing his position as a cultural ambassador, who has done so much to project a positive image for the country over the years.

Alhaji Mohammed prayed that God will grant King Sunny Ade many more years in good health so that he can continue to be a source of inspiration to aspiring music artists in particular and indeed the entire Nigerian youth in general.
