Saheed Osupa and Pasuma, two huge players in Nigeria’s Fuji music business, have at last ended their 20-year feud in a historic occasion. The reconciliation happened during the epoch-making Fuji Opera concert, which also featured appearances by Obsere and Malaika, two other prominent Fuji musicians.
The Fuji Music Association of Nigeria (FUMAN) has been credited for playing the role of peacemaker, having taken it upon itself to enact this reunion, indicating its dedication to promoting harmony within the genre.
Additionally, Osupa’s decision to patch things up with Wasiu Ayinde, popularly known as K1, after paying him a visit at his opulent home in Ijebu Igbo, Ogun State, gave the reconciliation movement a boost.
Even though there was first doubt about Osupa and Pasuma’s ability to reconcile, another Fuji star—Abass Akande, better known as Obesere—is said to have been effectively instrumental in bringing about the peace initiative.
But the reconciliation process is not just about Osupa and Pasuma alone; it’s really about fostering peace and brotherhood in the Fuji music industry as a whole. This is the particular reason why the Fuji community is also hoping that Obesere and K1, whose long-running dispute, will reach a similar conclusion and soonest.
