Before you are carried away by the headline, the title was neither conferred on him by any traditional ruler nor by any of the kingmakers in the Nigerian music industry. As usual, he Tinstalled himself as the Obama of Fuji. If you can remember vividly, we told you in this column few months ago that Wasiu Ayinde (KWAM1) released an album in honour of the United States President, Barack Obama, early this year. Then, we appreciated how Nigerians make good use of every opportunity that comes their way. That gesture, according to some Nigerians, is a nice one from the self-acclaimed King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal (KWAM1).
What many seem not to understand is the new title and the relevance of the title to Pasuma’s musical career. Pasuma, who was enthroned by God-knows-who as Otunba Fuji has christened himself names like Arabambi II, Lagata, Baba Wasi, Ijaya of Fuji. Only recently, this controversial Fuji musician, conferred on himself the Obama of fuji. Paso, don’t you think that your fans need to know the importance and relevance of these titles/names to your musical career?
