He said, “Don’t mind them. But they can’t kill me. God will not allow anything to happen to me. I performed at Tunji Braithwaite’s burial on Saturday night and I wasn’t ill."

"I am just coming from Oba Awujale’s palace in Ijebu Ode as you are talking to me. I am very healthy."

“I am not on Facebook, so I didn’t even read the story. It was friends that called me to tell me about what they read. I still pray for those who started the rumour. I don’t look for enemies and I don’t have any enemy,” he added.

King Sunny Ade has enjoyed a very successful career. He is regarded as one of the few African musicians who have gained international recognition for their attractive style of music.
