Posted by

Wasiu Alabi, better known by his stage name Pasuma, is a Nigerian Fuji ace who has shared a pivotal moment in his career.

In an interview with Iyabo Ojo, Pasuma described how his remarkable career in the music industry began with a setback to his football goals.

The well-known performer thought back on his shattered dreams of representing Nigeria in the FIFA U-16 World Championship in China in 1985.

When he was not chosen for the national team, Pasuma disclosed, his dreams of donning the Nigerian jersey were shattered, which ultimately prompted him to focus all of his energy and attention on music.

“I was a football player, but after I wasn’t selected to play for Kodak at the World Cup, I decided to pursue music,” he stated.

I then declared that I wanted to be a straight musician. I used to play football.

Pasuma grew up in the Mushin community of Lagos State.

He started writing songs in 1984, motivated by K1 de Ultimate, his idol.

His debut album, “Recognition,” was published in 1993.

He has released more than thirty albums since then.

Pasuma is one of the most well-known performers in the Fuji genre.
