On Monday, November 27, 2017, talented Fuji act, Alhaji Wasiu Alabi Odetola (Pasuma Wonder) clocked 50. However, against his fans’ expectation, there wasn’t any colourful and elaborate celebration of the day by the famous entertainer. Instead, a surprise birthday party was organised for him by a couple of close friends so that the day will not just roll by without being marked.
The evening bash, encomium.ng gathered, held at a Guest House on Santos Avenue, Abule Egba, Lagos.
An inside source who spoke to encomium.ng under the condition of anonymity said, “There was nothing like elaborate party for Pasuma’s 50th birthday on Monday as being peddled. And there was no house dedication as well. There was a brief prayer by some Islamic clerics in his Omole, Lagos residence that day. But in the evening, some few friends organised a surprise birthday for him at a private place somewhere at Santos Area, Abule Egba, Lagos. A lot of other people also wanted to host him that day, but he can’t be everywhere. That was all for that day.”
On the social media report that Sunday, December 3, 2017 has been fixed for the Fuji star’s golden age colourful celebration, the source reacted, “Yes, that’s correct. The party is taking place at 10 Degrees Event Center, Oregun, Lagos. And King Sunny Ade (KSA) and Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Marshal (K1 de Ultimate) are expected to thrill at the event that will attract hundreds of Pasuma’s fans and friends from far and near. It’s really going to be a night of fun, and will be very colourful as well. Preparations towards that are ongoing.”
