When I saw this clip, I just cringed!

You can tell that the dude has money to burn!! I mean, there’s a crack on one of my camera and I was freaking out! Hasn’t he heard of a strap??

Anyway, I was listening to my Ipod today and left the setting on random. An old King Sunny Ade track came on (‘Mo beru Agba’, which is a powerful track, if you understand Yoruba!) and it was actually at his London gig four years ago that really got me into gig photography. Here was a shot from the night, which in my honest opinion, was a complete fluke:

Well, it’s 5.30 and the sun is still shining. Time to go out and have some fun in the sun.. oh, yeah!!

  1. Yayyyyy….Sunny Ade!!! My vaguest memories of this guy was when he did that music video of a pregnant woman. I remember really loving that video. Every time it came up on TV, my eyes were glued. I remember how the woman rode on a bicycle just to go to the nearest health center to deliver her baby. I remember feeling like crying when she almost fell off the bicycle…

    Wow. Memories. From a beautiful picture.

  2. I can’t view the video for some reason 😦

    Anyway, a little bird told me it’s your birthday today (actually you mentioned it on my blog!) so hope you have a really nice birthday and I pray that the new year takes you to a higher level in your relationships, career, etc.
