Juju maestro, King Sunny Ade and delectable songstress, Omawumi were special acts at the International Night 2017 at Ikoyi Club 1938. The annual event which usually features King Sunny Ade was given a fillip this year with the addition of Omawumi. Dressed in a shimmering gold coloured off-the-shoulder gown, Omawumi thrilled the audience with new and old songs taken from her debut and sophomore albums. Her mellifluous voice was a delightful curtain raiser to a grand evening that proved a rallying point for both old and new members of Ikoyi club.
Speaking in the intermission between Omawumiâ€™s performance and King Sunny Adeâ€™s arrival on stage, the Chairman of Ikoyi Club 1938, Mr. Babatunde Akinleye thanked members for turning out in large numbers and wishing them the best of the season.
Promising that Ikoyi club will always live up to and surpass their expectations, he said â€œWe will make Ikoyi Club the envy of all clubs.â€ The royal father of the day was Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo III, the Alake of Egbaland. King Sunny Ade who was dressed in white took the stage at about 11.45 and soon had the crowd dancing and singing along to his evergreen classics for hours.
