Nigerian alternative singer and songwriter, Adekunle Kosoko popularly known by his stage name of Adekunle Gold who is currently on a UK tour had the opportunity of meeting his longtime idol, the legendary King Sunny Ade. According to the YBNL act, he was trying to catch a nap when he saw the legend on Darey‘s (who was billed to perform at the same show) Instagram live. He promptly got up and went looking for him and was surprised to discover that KSA knew him by name. He posted a video of himself with the legend on his Instagram page and captioned it:

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.
