"I See Myself Becoming Nigeria’s President" – Pasuma

Nigerian Fuji sensation Wasiu Alabi, also known as Pasuma, has revealed how a pivotal moment shifted his career path from football to music.

Celebrating his 56th birthday, the iconic artist shared that a setback in his football aspirations led him to pursue a career in music.

Initially aiming to become a professional footballer and represent Nigeria internationally, Pasuma had his sights set on the FIFA U-16 World Championship in China in 1985.

Unfortunately, he did not make the cut for the tournament, which motivated him to shift his focus towards music.

Recalling the moment of rejection, Pasuma said;

“I was a footballer, so I was invited for Kodak, but I decided to go into music because I wasn’t picked to go to Kodak for the World Cup then, so I now said I want to be a musician straight. I was a footballer before.”

Despite the disappointment in his football career, Pasuma remained determined and passionate, eventually establishing himself as a prominent figure in the music industry.
