‘We give God the glory,’ he gushes
One of the widely celebrated fuji artistes, Alhaji Wasiu Alabi Odetola, famously known as Pasuma, has acquired yet another exotic automobile, a 2016 Range Rover jeep, worth N30 million. This, ENCOMIUM Weekly gathered, has increased the number of cars in the garage of the marvelous entertainer to about five.
The latest acquisition, we learnt, has been the darling machine of comfort for the Orobokibo creator since its delivery a couple of weeks back.
An industry source also disclose to ENCOMIUM Weekly that the ride was shipped into Nigeria from the United States of America shortly before the arrival of the fuji star, who was in the States where he was engaged for weeks before returning to Nigeria in the first week of July, 2016.
“Pasuma is in town now. He came back about three weeks ago, and with a big surprise to most of his fans, this time around. I learnt he has bought one of the most expensive Range Rover jeeps that no fuji musician has ever acquired. I learnt he was so happy about it but he didn’t really see it as a big deal.
“I also learnt the car is 2016 model and its worth N30 million. I learnt it was brought into Nigeria from the US before he returned after a month music tour of the US. I also learnt he left the shores of Nigeria in June, shortly after Seun Egbeegbe’s 40th birthday where he performed. Now, Pasuma is back in Nigeria cruising around in the new jeep. He really deserves to enjoy himself because he’s very hard working.”
Confirming the news on Friday, July 29, 2016, ENCOMIUM Weekly contacted the Ijoba Fuji, as Pasuma is also fondly addressed, via his publicist, Afolabi Oyekoya, CEO, A021, and he simply reacted, “It’s true, but that should be about a month ago. We give glory to God about that.”
On the amount the Kwara born singer purchased the jeep, he said, “It’s not up to N30 million as being bandied but very close to that.”
With the latest acquisition, however, the popular showbiz giant is now said to be a proud owner of one of the largest garages, not only in the genre but in the entertainment circuit as a whole.
Some of his wonders on wheels, we are told, include: Nissan Pathfinder, Chrysler car, Toyota Highlander, Range Rover Evogue and Range Rover spot jeeps, all worth millions of naira.
