The family of Dayo Kujore, the Juju music maestro, has officially confirmed his death.


In a statement on Tuesday, the family said Kujore died at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) on Monday after a brief illness.

The family also disclosed that the remains of the ‘Soko Extra’ crooner, who died at 69, had been deposited at a morgue.

It added that the burial arrangements for the late singer would be announced in due course.


“The family of Wonder Adedayo Kujore, the Soko Music exponent, wishes to inform the general public officially of his death,” the statement read.

“Dayo Kujore, died yesterday morning at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja after a brief illness. He was 69 years old.

“Survived with children and many grandchildren. The body has been deposited at a morgue while the burial arrangements will be announced later by the family.”


Kujore took interest in music at a young age after he joined his church’s choir where he learnt how to play musical instruments such as guitar and piano.

He was later discovered by a group of Juju musicians who had visited his village to perform at a special event after they spotted his music talent.

Kujore started pulling the weight of fame shortly after joining the group as he dazzled music lovers at events.


He would later form his own band and release several hit projects.
