Musician wants daughters to attend university before marriage


Summary of story from the Vanguard, October 8, 2011

King Sunny Ade, one of the best known and most influential musicians in Africa, has said he wants his daughters to go to university before getting married, something he didn’t manage to do.

“I … have daughters and sons but my appeal to you guys is that if you want to come and ask my daughters’ hand in marriage, I beg you, let them acquire University education before you marry them. I cherish education, so much because I didn’t have much education.”

He also talked about how much he misses his mother who died last year.

“I realised that I was alone and that my mum is gone and that my adviser is gone. I cried too. I thank God that my mum died at a ripe age but I still miss her,” he said.
