Most Nigerian musicians desire to get married, but fame appears to have been one of their stumbling blocks, or it seems. While some have long… dating routines with the intention of getting married soon, others are single parents, hoping that as they grow older, they will accomplish the normal life ritual of holy matrimony.

Highly revered Fuji artiste, Wasiu Alabi Pasuma belongs in the group of singles.

The self acclaimed Oganla 1 is still single and searching despite having father close to eight (8) children ‘four in the US and another four in Nigeria’.

The talented musician has been rumoured to have dated the likes of Biodun  Okeowo, Ronke Odusanya a.k.a Flakky Ididowo, Ayo Adesanya, Bisi Ibidapo Obe, Remi Surutu, She Baby, Doyin Aggrey, Bukky Black, Tayo Odueke a.k.a Sikiratu Sindodo among many others.

But out of all his women, he  came close to marrying Ayo Adesanya years back, until something scuttled it.
His first child, a girl named Wasilat, was born 23 years ago.

There are also others like Amirah, Khadijat, Barakat, Haliyah and so on.

The names of the children’s mothers are Kemi( Wasilat), Lara (Haliyat), Ganiat ( Khadijat and Amirah), of course,  the above women are not the only ones in the life of the husky-voiced musician who grew up in Mushin, Lagos.

In a recent interview with HipTV Channel 324 on DSTV, the Orobokibo crooner, opened up on marriage plan.

His words “Marriage is a life time contract, so I don’t want to rush into it, because if you rush in; you rush out. I don’t want a situation whereby I get married today and few months down the line I made newspaper headline that Pasuma have divorce.

I already have kids out of wedlock. They will protect and keep my legacy, so what is the essence of getting married. When the right time comes I would think about marriage, but for now, it’s not in my plans”. The 47 year old Fuji musician squealed.
