It Felt Hard To Donate My Baby To Hard Rock Cafe –KSA

King Sunny Ade Becomes First Nigerian Musician To Join Hard Rock's Iconic Memorabilia Collection

The legendary musician who was recently inducted into the Hard Rock Cafe has revealed how he was emotionally awashed from the series of event which had him donate his ‘ baby’ (guitar).


I was told that I would need to donate something I really love. This guitar is a part of my success story. I had wanted to give out another guitar but I was told it would have to be something special to me. So I asked my ‘baby’ if it wouldn’t mind being donated to the hall of fame. I told it that I would want it to be my ambassador to the world. That was how I reluctantly donated the guitar to Hard Rock,”  he said.

The ‘baby’ was reportedly bought for one pound nine shillings so many years ago. It was also the guitar the legend used for his award winning track, ‘Syncro System,’ that also earned him a Grammy nomination.

Now,the legend has joined other international artistes including Elvis Presley, The Beatles and The Temptations whose memorabilia are displayed in the hall of fame.

KSA, who clocked 70 recently, is still basking in celebration mood. He said the grand finale of his KSA @ 70 celebrations would be a concert staged in his honour and tagged ‘Sunny on Sunday,’ which would hold in Lagos this weekend.
