The truth concerning Fuji creation is still an issue generating heated arguments among the fans of the genre since the statement by one of its giants, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Olasunkanmi, better addressed as K1 De Ultimate, that his boss and mentor, late Sikiru Ayinde Balogun (Barrister) didn’t create the music brand, but only modernised it.
However, Barrister’s arch rival and friend, General Kollington Ayinla’s lie that he never referred to him as Fuji creator has been exposed in the video clip (now on YouTube) of the fifth anniversary of Barrister’s death held at Time Square Event Centre, Ikeja, Lagos on December 20,2015 where Kebe n Kwara, as Kollington is also known, confessed the late Fuji maestro as founder and creator of the genre.
In the video, Kollington said, “The founder and creator of the job I am doing today is now late.”
He said this while condemning the attitude of some Fuji stars who were conspicuously absent at the occasion.
