  The much anticipated ‘Oleku Concert’ organized by WTS recorded a massive success as it availed fans of the legendary King Sunny Ade and the iconic Ebenezer Obey Fabiyi the luxury of seeing the duo perform together live on stage.

   The concert  was well attended and other legendary acts like Pa Fatai Rolling DollarS, Pa Moses Olaiya popularly known as Baba Sala in attendance. Both icons are Obey and Sunny Ade’s mentors respectively .

 Pa Fatai Rolling dollar performed his evergreen song 'Won kere si number' which he reportedly changed to 'Won kere si jesu waa'.
 The last time Evangelist  Ebenezer  Obey and King Sunny Ade performed together on thesama stage was at a  defunct club in Surulere, 35 years ago.
