Young artistes preference is towards hip-hop rather than fuji music-Pasuma

by Duke Magazine

Nigerian fuji star, Wasiu Alabi, popularly called Pasuma, has stated young artistes preference for hip-hop to fuji music. 

The self-titled ‘Oganla 1 of fuji’ made this known during an Instagram Live chat with Yoruba Nollywood actress and husband Toyin Abraham and Kolawole Ajeyemi.

Pasuma said: “It is sad that budding fuji artistes now prefer to sing hip-hop. After Shanko Rasheed and his set, we are yet to find other young artistes doing fuji music. Even Destiny Boy that was meant to do fuji has decided to focus on hip-hop.”

Pasuma then unveiled ruminating plans of projecting new fuji stars onto stardom. “After this COVID-19 pandemic, we have plans to organise a competition for talented fuji artistes. We keep seeing the same faces in fuji music circles, unlike the hip-hop genre where new talents are discovered every time. We would do whatever we can to grow fuji music”, he added.

The fuji music icon, who has been featured with hip-hop artistes like Olamide and Lil Kesh, also reiterates the love people have for the ‘groovy’ tunes of his music at the expense of the wise messages that is imbued in his lyrics. 

“People need to be patient enough to listen to the words of wisdom in my music. Most people focus on the groovy part of my songs; they are not patient enough to listen to the words of wisdom in them. Most people don’t focus on the lyrics because my music is a combination of ‘groove’ and words of wisdom,” he said.

Pasuma then highlighted the relevance of making positive impact. He said: “It is important for people to know that one has impacted their lives. Even the people who love the persons one has impacted would always pray for one. If you are from a humble background, you would know that no one deserves to suffer.”
