No fewer than 42 musicians including Evangelist Ebenezer Obey-Fabiyi and Fuji artistes, K1, Wasiu Alabi Pasuma and Suleiman Alao Malaika have signed up to perform at the coronation ceremony of new Olubadan- designate, High Chief Saliu Adetunji.
The installation of Chief Adetunji as the 41st Olubadan is slated for Friday March 4, 2016 in the ancient city.
An impeccable palace source confided in The Nation that the musicians cut across major Yoruba music genres such as Juju, Fuji, Apala and Highlife.
The source added that none of the artistes wants to miss the opportunity to perform for the new Olubadan, who is a major player in the music industry.
Adetunji is a music producer and promoter under some record labels including Omo Aje Sound Studio.
The artistes are being coordinated by K-1, who is a major artiste on Omo Aje Sound Studio label.
Owing to the huge number of the artistes, it was learnt that each of them may not have more than 15 minutes to perform throughout the coronation ceremony. But the musicians are likely to perform on Friday and Saturday when the new monarch is scheduled to entertain guests.
Meanwhile, well-wishers are still thronging Chief Adetunji’s Popoyemoja, Ibadan residence to felicitate with him on his forthcoming ascension to the throne.
While cows are being slaughtered daily to feed guests, renovation work is also in progress at his residence to enlarge the compound in anticipation of large number of visitors.
The late Olubadan, Oba Samuel Odulana Odugade 1, joined his ancestors on January 19, paving the way for Chief Adetunji to be chosen as the new Olubadan.
