WAR IN THE HOUSE OF FUJI: PASUMA VS OSUPA
The war of words presently going on amongst fuji artistes calls for attention. Basically it is a war of leadership among two principal characters, King Saheed
Osupa (Saheed Okunola) and Otunba Wasiu Alabi Pasuma.
The genesis of the war started a few months ago at a show organised for Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, the man who modernised Were Music (Islamic rendition during the holy month Of Ramadan) into fuji music, Saheed Osupa and up-coming fuji act Muri Thunder.
Barrister told Saheed Osupa that he has copies of all his albums and that he is impressed by efforts of Saheed Osupa who he (Barrister) feels is taking after
him. Sequel to this Barrister informed Saheed Osupa that for his efforts he would crown him the King of Music among fuji acts in Nigeria. A gestrure which the wave making fuji act who employs lots of proverbs and idioms accepted.
Prior to when Saheed Osupa was pronounced the King of Music by Barrister, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde K1 made Wasiu Alabi Pasuma the Otunba of Fuji acts in Nigeria. Since Saheed Osupa was pronounced the king of music by Barrister the fuji music indsutry has not known peace and it has been accusations, counter accusations and banters.
Exclusive interviews of King Saheed Osupa and Otunba Pasuma will be posted as soon as possible.
