In 2014, the news went rival that popular veteran Nigerian Fuji musician was in serious Rape scandal that landed him police trouble.

Although the matter was later resolved amicably between the parties involved, his son, Lekan Akande, who recently established his record label maintained that it was all set up, that his father wouldn't have stooped so low to be caught in such an inhuman crime.

"I did not believe the story. My whole family did not believe it and we were solidly behind my father. It did not affect our family. I know my father well and I know that he does not womanise.

And then again, he has been vindicated by the police. Even before that, we knew that he was innocent. I understand the entertainment industry and know that such things are bound to happen because there would be detractors trying to tarnish his image. The industry is filled with blackmailers that are out to ruin people's reputation. My relationship with my father has not changed. I envy the feat he has attained in his career and I hope to surpass him," he asserted.
