Discography of King Sunny Ade









1966
Sunny Ade
Eda Ko Laropin (7" single; ?)
Eda Ko Laropin
-- This could be the Sunny Ade's first hit in Nigeria. Chronological order of this one and the next one is not clear. Perhaps these two tracks are on the two sides of the same single AS21.

1967
Sunny Ade
Alanu L'Oluwa (7" single; African Songs AS 21)
Alanu L'Oluwa
-- This is most likely KSA's first record. According to KSA himself (via A. Kolawole), it was recorded at NBC Studio, now Radio Nigeria, at Obalende in Nov/Dec 69 and released in Jan 70, but most likely he just forgot the precise year of the release because he released a single 'Challenge Cup '67' later.
