Top 5 Fuji Musicians Who Will Blow Your Mind

The Fuji musical style is widely heard in Nigeria. New Fuji artists continuously emerge, but the big five have remained constant throughout the genre’s history and remain untouchable now.

These Fuji artists, just like today’s top mainstream performers, have a massive, devoted fan base.

These Fuji artists have been working in the field for various amounts of time; some of them have been around since the 1960s, while others entered it much recently.

What follows is a list of the five best Fuji bands and musicians.

5) Obesere

At one time, his music was frowned upon because of the crudeness of his lyrics.

Fuji’s Abass Obesere sounds like a cross between and Naira Marley from the ’90s.

Zlatan was included in a new remix of one of his hit songs, “Egungun be Careful.”

To avoid any possible controversy, we at must admit that the unaltered version of “Egungun be Careful” is superior to the remixed one.

4)  Saheed Osupa

His former colleagues hated him because the late Barrister had referred to him as “the king of Fuji,” and this led to a major scandal.

The majority of people didn’t think he earned the honor.

Pasuma, another top Fuji artist, has been a fierce rival of Saidi Akorede Okunola.

Saheed Osupa has proven his doubters wrong with hit after hit like “Respect,” cementing his status as a Fuji music superstar.


3) Remi Aluko

He carved up a name for himself by adapting popular Christian and hip-hop tunes to Fuji style.

Even those who dismissed Fuji music as “gutter music” were captivated by Remi Aluko’s performance.

He became famous by popularizing Fuji among listeners who would never have considered it before.

2) Pasuma

In any discussion of Fuji, Pasuma is bound to come up at some point.

Since the early 1990s, when he first began singing Fuji music, Wasiu Alabi Ajibola has built himself a solid reputation and risen to the very pinnacle of his field.

He did this, in part, by incorporating hip hop into his music. Even die-hard Fuji aficionados have taken notice of this.

“Paso,” as he is also known, has worked with several other Nigeian musicians and visual artists beyond the borders of Fuji. You may recognize names like Eedris Abdulkareem, Ruggedman, and Olamide among these performers.

As a Fuji artist, he is also present on the web with his own webpage and many accounts.

1) K1 De Ultimate


Some people consider King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall (KWAM) to be the rightful ruler of Fuji.

He carried on the legacy of the late Sikiru Ayinde Barrister (the “father of Fuji”) by raising the bar for subsequent Fuji practitioners.

From the ’60s to the present day, KWAM 1 has become synonymous with the sound of the era. Wasiu’s visage readily comes to mind whenever the Fuji business sector is mentioned.

Fans of his music continue to sing along to Talazo.
