Some of the lyrics of the live performance of KSA for your enjoyment fellas


Opening dance by the governor and members of the high table..Live performance for them by the legendary juju maestro King Sunny Ade


MC Arkbishop got the crowd fooled by a 2014 Toyota Camry car given to him by the governor. Apparently it happened in his dreams…..lol. Ladies and gentlemen, your event is incomplete if Arkbishop is missing. This dude has got people laughing real hard, even the Executive Governor of Ondo State is having a good time right now courtesy the young man


The presence of the Governor is also met with a rendition of the Nigerian National anthem. The Governor is accompanied by her wife Mrs Oluwakemi Mimiko. Incase you don’t know, the governor and his wife are indigenes of Ondo town…they are Ekimoguans


Alright fellas, we now have in our midst the number one citizen of Ondo State, His Excellency the Governor of Ondo State Dr Olusegun Mimiko…the crowd acknowledged his arrival with an uproar of “iroko” as well as a short rendition of ‘arise and shine Dr Mimiko”

Distinguished ladies and Gentlemen, we are officially kicking off the Gala Night as important dignitaries are now invited to the high table


Am sure you all know but just for the records, the Legendary KSA is an Ekimoguan.  KSA otherwise known as the minister of enjoyment is a son of Ondo Kingdom. King Sunny Ade and The African Beats tour with the typically large African line-up of 20-30 members. They play a spacey, jamming sort of Juju, characterized by tight vocal harmonies, intricate guitar work, backed by traditional talking drums, percussion instruments, and even adding the unusual pedal steel guitar and accordian….We will have the rare privilege of witnessing a live performance from the juju legend himself…OMG…isn’t that simply wowwwww…..”won ti lekun momo nile, loju e won tileku momo nile”


King Sunny Ade


The Crowd is gradually settling in and we are listening to some recorded songs of the legendary King Sunny Ade at the background…I must say the timing of the event is not top notch though


The Ekimogun Gala Night is the final event that rounds up the activities marking the Ekimogun week; it is an event that is attended by the creme de la creme of Ondo City. After a successful transformation of Ondo Town to a city yesterday, we are now at the Ondo Civic Center to enjoy ourselves; the Ondo People are reputed for “faaji” and am sure we won’t be disappointed this morning. You can’t make it to the civic center???Never mind as we are here to keep you up to date with activities at the civic centre….you can also enjoy your asun right here…lol
