Pasuma real name Wasiu Alabi has shared some of his greatest life lessons in a recent interview. According to the Fuji artiste, he learnt a lot about himself, others and the purpose of being benevolent during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Pasuma stated that he had to empty his wallet so people in his vicinity could feed during the lockdown.
Here is what he said;
“COVID-19 taught all of us very big lessons and it affected everyone’s business in one way or the other. All the same, we thank God that we are gradually getting out of it. The pandemic taught me how to be more prudent and to always have a ‘plan B’ in every business one is involved in. It got to a stage that my bank account was almost ‘red’ with the way I gave out palliatives at the height of the pandemic.”

Known to always identify with youths Pasuma, however, was said to have got into the bad books of some young people during the recent #EndSARS protests. In a video clip that went viral on the Internet, he appeared to have been chased away from a protest venue in Lagos and was not allowed to make a speech.
However, the entertainer reiterated that no such thing happened. He also maintained that contrary to what some people thought, fuji musicians, including himself supported the protests. He said:
“I was not chased away from the protest. Those reports were rumours from my haters. I supported the protesters from the beginning as a fuji musician and there were lots of fuji artistes that stood with the youths as well during that time. We are all Nigerians. If Nigeria is better than it is now; we would all have a place to live in comfortably and call home.”
Responding to a question on what projects he is working on, Pasuma said;
“I don’t really have any project I am working on at the moment. Except for my new album, MMM, which was released recently. I am happy that it is currently making waves and selling fast in the market. Also, the video for the title song of the album will be out soon.”
