KSA’s Mom’s Burial Programme Out



Indications that the funeral of the mother of King Sunny Ade, Princess Mariam Adegeye, is going  to be one of the biggest tourist events in Ondo emerged during the week as the committee in  charge of the programme rolled out the burial activities.


Speaking in Lagos, Clement Ige, chairman of the burial committee, said KSA himself is humbled  by the massive responses to the news of his mother’s death, both locally and internationally,  adding that this is why the committee has particularly designed Artistes’ Night as part of the  one-week ceremonies.
