King Sunny Ade’ Biography by Craig Harris
King Sunny Ade is the undisputed king of juju music, the dance-inspiring hybrid of western pop and traditional African music with roots in the guitar tradition of Nigeria.
Although he’s yet to equal the success that he enjoyed with his early-’80s albums and American tours, Ade and his band, His African Beats, continue to weave an infectious blend of electric guitars, synthesizers and multi-layered percussion. Born to a family of Nigerian royalty, Ade left school to pursue a career in music.
In the mid-’60s, he performed with a highlife band, Moses Olaiya’s Federal Rhythm Dandies. Ade formed his own band, the Green Spots, in 1967. Frustrated by the exploitation of the record industry, Ade launched his own record label in 1974.
In the decades since, the label has released more than 100 of Ade’s recordings in Nigeria. Ade began to attract attention in the western world when three of his albums — Juju Music, Synchro System, and Aura — were released in the early ’80s on the Mango label, a subsidiary of Island Records. Ade & His African Beats made their debut American performances to enthusiastic crowds in 1983.
In 1996, Ade formed a supergroup, the Way Forward, featuring top-notch Nigerian musicians. He and His African Beats have been featured in three films — Juju Music in 1988, Live at Montreux in 1990, and Roots of Rhythm in 1997.
