King Sunny Ade, legendary Nigerian musician, will no longer be performing at the 2017 Coachella Festival. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (commonly referred to as Coachella or the Coachella Festival) is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland
Empire’s Coachella Valley, in the Colorado Desert. King Sunny Ade ’s name made the initial
Coachella Festival promotional flyer distributed across social media and widely reported across the news. KSA was also added to their website, as more performers were announced. He was meant to perform a set either on April Sunday 16 or 23. Another superstar, Beyonce, had earlier pulled out of Coachella Festival due to her pregnancy with twins. She was replaced by Lady Gaga, as a headliner and announced by the organisers, Goldenvoice and AEG Live. Lady Gaga has shared a new event flyer, and Sunny Ade’s name is conspicuously missing. His name has also been removed from the official lineup on the concert website. King Sunny Ade , a Juju legend commemorated his 70th birthday with a ceremony in December 2016, at the Lagos, and auctioned one of his famous guitars, masterfully painted by award-winning artist, Victor Ehikhamenor, will be not playing his set at the event.
