King of Fuji music Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Oloade Adeyimika Balogun aka Sikiru Ayinde Barrister was not only prolific in churning out hit songs when he was alive but also prolific in the bedroom, considering the number of wives he married andthe children he sired.

When he was alive little did anybody know about his private life, but as at the time he died on 16, December, 2010 and we can reveal that the singer had about 16 wives and at least 62 children.

Investigations revealed that Alhaji Agba, as he was popularly called, lived with only one of the wives in his palatial mansion, Fuji Chambers situated in Isolo, Lagos, Nigeria while others lived all over Nigeria and other parts of the world.

Some of the wives, according to P.M.NEWS findings, are Yetunde, Bola, Bisi, Olayinka, Kehinde, Yemi, Mejidat, Faderera, Alhaja Morufat, Aisha, Balogun and others.

To corroborate our findings, 16 of his wives wore the same Ankara aso ebi when they attended the eight day fidau prayer held in his honour at Fuji Chambers, Isolo, Lagos, yesterday.

Our investigations further revealed that the most loved among the wives was the late Alhaja Maimunat Balogun. The fuji icon named the mosque in the Fuji Chambers after her to immortalise her and as a practical demonstration of his love for her.

We further gathered that some of the wives had between 3 to 5 kids each and the youngest is the daughter of his bosom friend named Adisa Pele whose marriage to the fuji king was controversial.

During his lifetime he he rationalised his marriage to his friend's daughter in one of his songs, saying it is not a new thing because it happened during the time of the holy Prophet Muhammed, (saw).
