Singer Pasuma Reveals Why He Left Football For Music


Singer Pasuma Reveals Why He Left Football For Music

Fuji musician, Pasuma has revealed why he stopped playing football to pursue a career in music.

The Fuji singer, in a recent interview with Iyabo Ojo the Queen Mother, said he used to be a professional footballer.

Pasuma said his decision to pursue music stemmed from not being selected to play at the 1985 FIFA/KODAK World championship in China — which was eventually won by Nigeria.

“I was a footballer but I decided to go into music because I was not picked to go to Kodak for the World Cup,” he said.

“So I now said I want to be a musician straight. I was a footballer before.”

Wasiu Alabi Pasuma grew up in the  Mushin area of Lagos state. He started writing his own songs in 1984 after being inspired by K1 de Ultimate, his role model. He has since released over 30 albums.

Pasuma is one of the most successful musicians in the Fuji genre.

One thing about Pasuma that I like alot is his calmness and his humble spirit. Nothing can be more satisfying in this world than being humble.

Live with Purpose, Love with Passion. Remember to be happy

One ❤️❤️❤️

Today's Quote

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
