His first son Reverend Dele Adejumo said that all business investments of the aged veteran including Alawada Standard Hotel, Alawada Records and Alawada Photo magazine, has been ruined by circumstances and poor management.

Baba Sala, who is taken to a hospital weekly, needs a lot of money for medical treatment abroad.

The upcoming biography titled ‘The Triumph of Destiny’ was co-authored by Babatunde Akinola, Collins Oyedokun, and Kunle Ajani, and captures the antecedents and essence of the creative energies of Sala as a comical trailblazer.

Significantly, Baba Sala started his career in show business as a Highlife musician, fronting in 1964, a group known as the Federal Rhythm Dandies.

He tutored and guided the jùjú music maestro King Sunny Adé, who was his lead guitar player.
