David A (UK) said: "Sunny Ade - This is one of his greatest Albums. It has to be rated alongside "Syncro System", and "The Message". Great Funky, Melody, African Soul Music. I think I must have returned to the UK when he released this album. When I asked one of my Aunt's in Nigeria about Sunny Ade, they said his album "Sweet Banana" was breaking Sales in Nigeria and it was being played a lot at parties and social events."


special thanks to Global Groove for posting the files for this music:

I have listened to different cuts of this album, many come with breaks in rhythm and beats, this is the complete one. Ose babami.

@Anonymous - I've been searching and wondering about the album "the message" as well. I have been told that it is one of KSA's finest. I was also outbid on it once on ebay. If and when I get the files for it.. I'll post it.. promise. Cole
