King Sunny

Saw a film on King Sunny Ade on the previous Saturday and now had a chance to see him in person. It was a delight and when I saw all the gaily-dressed Nigerian women climbing up to the stage and sticking money to his sweaty brow I knew that was the African tradition of “Spraying” because I had seen it explained in the film “In Africa”, if you spray a musician enough times he will put your name in a song and then you will be highly thought of in your community.
