Osupa sings for Barry at 60


The 60th birthday anniversary feast of fuji exponent, Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, which started in February, will move to Ibadan on July 6 where reigning fuji artiste, Saheed Osupa, will lead others in performance.

The 60th birthday anniversary feast of fuji exponent, Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, which started in February, will move to Ibadan on July 6 where reigning fuji artiste, Saheed Osupa, will lead others in performance.

About a month ago, K1 de Ultimate, Wasiu Ayinde, had led a similar treat held at Water Parks, Ikeja, Lagos.

Osupa‘s concert is, however, also very symbolic since Ibadan is regarded as the first home of fuji, as Barrister, widely regarded as the founder of the genre, hails from the Oyo State capital. Besides, Osupa as well as other notable musicians, such as the late Dauda Epo Akara, Akande Obesere and Talaso Ibadan, are from the same city.

Also, a statement credited to the organisers indicated that the show is tagged ‘Confirmation and Celebration‘ because Barrister is expected to ‘confirm‘ Osupa as the king of fuji at the event billed to hold at Genesis Hall in the Challenge area.
