Born Wasiu Ayinde Adewale Omogbolahan Anifowoshe on the 3rd of March 1957 in Agarawu, Lagos Island, the young Wasiu began his career in music soon after his father died when he was just 13 years old.

He released his first album in 1980.In 1984 he released the classic album “Talazo 84″, featuring a new up-tempo and dynamic beat that was instantly dubbed the “Talazo System”The album became an instant hit and fuji music has never been the same again.

The impact of that album transformed Wasiu into a national icon, and within a few years, he had incorporated western elements into the music such as the keyboard, saxophone and guitar .

Among his many awards are FAME musician of the year, best Fuji artist at the NMA (Nigerian Music Awards) and best African artist at the WOMAD Festival in Reading 1996. In 1994, Wasiu was crowned the King of Fuji music, and officially re-named King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal the First (KWAM 1) by the King of Oyo in Ibadan.

Waisu is currently planning to celebrate his 55th birthday and 40years on stage at his new mansion in ijebu ode.

King Wasiu Ayinde has released over 120 records.

CONGRATULATIONS: It's d lord's doing and it is marvelous in our eyes and i wish u more succesive long life as God may pleased but Listen!! it does't matters how many yrs u'av spent on earth or how many remaineth, what matters is how many yrs u spend wit God according 2 His directives. God'll b mor hapy 4 any bd wu spend up2 20 yrs or less than on earth wit Him than he wu spend 150 yrs on earth witout Him (God). So, Let us fear God and depart from evil inspite of period of yrs He give 2 every one of us.

UNIQUE DECISION ON ALCOHOL

You are such a great talented and versatile musician.With gigantic combination of oratory voice and accurate sound system.I have watched and listened to your music at some family friend party.
Tremendously impressed at your your decision on your 55TH BIRTHDAY to stop taking and serving friend with alcohol.As a chemical Engineer,it has a lot of burning adverse effect on the body organs. For anyone to live longer the body organs such as liver,kidney,heart must function well.
May the almighty God the owner of the nine planets,seas,ocean,mountains,Hills and valley grant you and the entire member of your household long life and prosperIty.A man called Joshua in the bible said sun and moon should stand still ....and God obeyed his voice which result to leap year today all over the world,the same GOD will perfect your decision of 03/03/2012. REFERENCE BOOK OF JOSHUA 10 VS 12-15
