In the dynamic world of Fuji music, recent discussions sparked by a video from Olalekan Ayinde, the creator of the Abere Oro TV Facebook channel, have brought attention to the importance of cautious commentary within the Fuji community. The video in question questioned the actions of Wasiu Ayinde, who holds the prestigious title of Mayegun, in comparison to fellow artist Sule Alao Malaika. This prompted a response from Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Agboola, also known as SK Sensation, the National President of the Fuji Musicians Association of Nigeria (FUMAN), urging content creators to exercise prudence before delving into matters they may not fully understand.
Fuji music is more than just a genre; it is a cultural phenomenon deeply rooted in the traditions and history of the Yoruba people in Nigeria.
