Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has commiserated with the family of the late music legend Alhaji Jaigbade Alao, praying Allah to grant him al-jannah Firdaus and comfort the family.
Alhaji Jaigbade died on Monday morning, according to media reports.
“On behalf of the government and people of Kwara State, I send our condolences to the family of Alhaji Jaigbade Alao and all lovers of his inimitable Dadakuada music worldwide. Alhaji Jaigbade was a legend whose mastery of his genre of music projected the state positively,” according to a statement.
“He was also a community leader in his own right. His death has created a void in the chain of great mentors for younger ones who took to his genre of dadakuada music. We beseech Allah to forgive him and grant him Al-jannah Firdaus.”
The Dadakuada crooner was among the statesmen that the Kwara State Government recently honoured in the maiden edition of its lifetime achievement awards dedicated to different personalities who served or contributed to the development of the state or the country at various levels/sectors.
