Sade and Ila Adu are best friends. The mother and daughter recently shared a hug and posted it on Instagram for fans to see.


Ila and her mom fully embraced as the camera captured the cute candid. The teen lavished in the moment, while her mom looked into the camera’s lens.

It was just a few weeks ago that Sade celebrated her fifty-sixth birthday. In addition to having close friends and a number of fans give their well wishes to her, the celebrated Nigerian singer also had the pleasure of reading her daughter’s sweet note on her special day.

“Just want to say Happy Birthday to my best friend and the most beautiful woman in the entire world(inside and out). My Mumma,” shared Ila on Instagram. “You are the most important person in my life and you mean absolutely everything to me. So glad I got to spend the day with you hope you enjoyed yourself. Love you past the moon and back countless times.”

Sade also has a bonus son, by marriage to Ian Watts, named Jack.
