The King of African beats, King Sunny Ade, has dropped out of this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. KSA was scheduled to perform between April 16 and 23.
According to an insider, who spoke to Rhythm Africa, Coachella may conflict with a call to national duty since King Sunny Ade may be scheduled to headline a concert celebrating the return of Nigeria’s president from a medical leave to the United Kingdom.
As reported, Coachella 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, the event features many genres of music, including rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music, as well as art installations and sculptures. Across the grounds, several stages continuously host live music.
Coachella showcases popular and established musical artists, as well as emerging artists and reunited groups. Coachella is one of the largest, most famous, and most profitable music festivals in the United States and all over the world.
