“Sade – Maureen”

27 Jan

“Maureen”, a song from Sade’s 1985 album, “Promise”.
Helen Folasade Adu was born on 16 January 1959 in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria.[5] Her middle name, Folasade, means “honour confers a crown”.[7] 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.[5][8] Her parents separated, however, and Anne Hayes returned to England, taking four-year-old[9] Sade and older brother Banji with her to live with their grandparents near Colchester, Essex. When Sade was 11 years old, she moved to Holland-on-Sea, Essex, to live with her mother.[10] After completing her education at Clacton County High School at age 18 she moved to London and studied fashion design at Saint Martin’s School of Art.[5][9][11]

    So she has Yoruba genes – that explains the feline look and grace of movement. Love her!
