Popular Nigerian Fuji singer Wasiu Alabi Pasuma has opened up on the main reason why he supported his daughter Opeyemi to join United States of America Navy.
Pasuma during the week took to his official Instagram account to share the great news
with fans and followers as he shared a picture of his daughter that have joined the force successfully.
The talented singer who have also shown his talents in the hip-hop world during an interview
with The Punch have now opened up on why he supported Opeyemi.
Speaking with the media outlet, Pasuma said:
“I am proud of her. Any parent would be proud to know that their child has a mindset of service.
“I supported her decision from the beginning. She had been talking about joining the US Navy for some years, so I was not surprised when she eventually enlisted.”
The singer also stated that even if his daughter indicated interest in joining the Nigerian Army, he would not have discouraged her.
“As a Nigerian, I have the utmost respect for the men and women of the Nigerian military for the selfless work they do. The level of insecurity in the country may initially make any parent feel unsure about their child joining the military.
However, there is the risk of danger in almost everything we do in life. Pilots take risks; driving a car or crossing a road also has risks. Being in the military in America too involves risks, so I would not have discouraged her.”
