Son of Fuji musician, Obesere, Lekan Akande, is currently making a name for himself in the Nigerian entertainment industry as he recently float his own record label where he already has some artistes signed already.

Lekan who base in Dublin with his mother and plans to return to Nigeria fully in an interview with Punch newspaper disclosed that he did not want to toe his father's line of fuji music because he wanted to be different.

He stated that he did not want to repeat the same thing his father had done which is why he likes thinking outside the box.

According to him, “I did not want to be involved with Fuji music because my great-grand father was a Fuji musician same as my father. Two of my father's younger brothers are also Fuji musicians. I did not toe that path because I wanted to be different and I always think outside the box. I do not want to repeat the things that my father has done, I want to do things my own way. I think it makes a lot of sense to do things my way with the knowledge I have.”

Speaking about signing his father to his record label, Lekan stated that he can never do such because his father his too big for him. “No, I am not going to sign my father on my record label. He is doing his thing and so am I. He is too big for me to sign on to my record label.”
