Just wanted to wish the Nigerian Queen a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! On January 16, 1959 Helen Folasade Adu better known to Millions as simply Sade was born. Sade was born in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. Her middle name, Folasade, means "honour confers your crown". Her parents, Adebisi Adu, a Nigerian lecturer in economics of Yoruba background, and Anne Hayes, an English district nurse, met in London, married in 1955 and moved to Nigeria. Later, when the marriage ran into difficulties, Anne Hayes returned to England, taking four-year-old Sade and her older brother Banji to live with her parents. Later on Sade and her brother lived with their grandparents just outside Colchester, Essex. When Sade was 11, she moved to Holland-on-Sea, Essex to live with her mother and after completing school at 18 she moved to London and studied at Saint Martin's School of Art. Here are just some of my Favorites by Sade Live.
