The late Barrister

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).

Are you saying it is only yoruba women that does this type of thing? Eaven the women in north and eastern part of this our country does worst, and I belive you will come from one of this two mentioned places. Please, when nest you are directing ur speech, keep the entire yoruba race away from it.

LET GOD SAY YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.:
By the sun and its brilliance, and the moon, following it, and the day, revealing it, and the night concealing it; by the sky and its construction, and the earth and its extension; by the self and its balance, and its inspiration with its depravity and its conscience: whoever purifies it is triumphant, and whoever corrupts it is a failure. [91: 1 to 10]

Try to read these and think about it. OSUPA OLORUN YIO WA PELU E. AMIN OOOOOOOOO.

It is the culture of Muslims to have many wives' although some church goers do the same: however, the future of these kids is the problem we face in Nigeria. Nigeria was number 17 most populated countries in the world and Lagos was number 21 most populated cities in the world the last time I check. With all these populations of one man having three, four, five, six and 20 to 60 kids arose the problem we face in Nigeria. Barrister has created his own problem and was able to suppose care for them when he was alive, after his death the problem that wasn't manifesting may surface. Nigeria is never going to be better regardless anyways until we understand to have one or two kids that we can take proper care of, and to administer outstanding education for them. Okan mba bi o san ju egberun radarada omo.

To have more than one (two) wife can be a blessing sometimes. According to yoruba ako mo omo ti yio sin wa. one of Barry Black's most popular and hit record was family planning. Barry must have had himself in mind when he released this hit record. Sotherefor i have nodoubt that he must have provided for them. The responsibility of caring for his younger siblings is now a big task tha the first child must perform. Let us pray that god should grant him everlasting peace. I hope his death will not be the end of FUJI MUSIC which he propegated not just for muslims but also as entertaiment for those who love entertaiment.

WE LOST A GEM
ALABI KAZEEM | 9/19/2012 4:03:06 AM
Just like yesterday- it is over a year we lost a musical Fuji Creator Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barusati, to me it is as if he is still alive bcos of his inspirational Albums he released during his life time, Omo Agbajelola Sun reo

Had I not come out with an inspirational CD, you perhaps would have never known that I feel like I feel, that all songs, all the music I have ever done is a gift from God, my creator, the giver and taker of life.

Mr.Fuji heralded another phase of history-mystry!
Escober | 7/24/2013 2:20:02 AM
Like former presidents of U.S(Abraham lincoln and J.F kennedy) they both shared similar line of destinies in the separate but clashed courses of the life they lived and courses of their death.. Here again in nigeria, mr fuji had 16 Wives and died Dec. 16th 2010, he was survived by 62 children and passed-on at age of 62. His death released a shocking relic in the minds of all and sundry across the Glob( truly he was Abinuwaye!!) This is mysterious!!! For ever he lives on in my Heart. May his mild soul continue 2 rest in the bossom of almighty God. YOU 'R AN EPOCH MAKER JOOOOooorfoooooooooo. U av lived ur lyf baba!!!!

ayinde sikiru,infact you are really a gem,apart from that you are a man(okunrin takun takun) for giving birth to 62 children and 16 wife,and you still maintain your posture,your family is enough to create a community or even a country but i won't say the person you left is osupa because we all know that ayinde marshal is the next after you because is music is genuine and classic,and he is the greatest among the whole fuji musician,up arambambi,up the king of fuji,sun re o,agbajelola,we pray for God to forgive you of your sin because you really comit a big sin.
