Legendary musician, King Sunny Ade, popularly known as KSA, has announced plans for the burial of his late wife, Mrs Risikat Ajoke Adegeye.
Speaking at a media briefing in Lagos on Thursday, he told journalists that the woman would be buried on Wednesday, September 29.
Describing the deceased as his “angel” KSA said: “I thank God for everything because He knows more than everyone of us. Risi’s death was a big loss to me and my family. It is indeed a trying time.
“She was more than a wife to me. She was an angel and I always called her my baby. She was a wife and mother that every good man and child must have.
“With a heavy heart, we announce that she would be buried on Wednesday, September 29, after lying in state. She will be buried in Lagos. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from everyone since I lost my wife. I appreciate everyone.”
Also present at the briefing was the son of the deceased, Mr. George Folarin Adegeye, who told reporters that he was still in shock following his mother’s death.
Shedding more light on the funeral arrangements, he disclosed that the burial was planned early based on the deceased’s instructions.
He said: “It is a painful experience. I have yet to believe my mother is no more. We will bury her on September 29 while celebration of life would take place on December 19. We cannot embalm her till December because she gave an instruction that whenever she went home, she should not be embalmed and that is why we have to bury her as soon as we could.”
He added that the planned insuguration of his mega lounge and club house, “The Royal Majesty Place,” at Magodo, Lagos, which was earlier billed to hold on October 1, had been postponed indefinitely.
