When Fuji star Pasuma dabbled into Hip-Hop music a few months ago and came out with an album many thought he was crazy. What does this guy want from Hip-Hop with the resounding success he had recorded in Fuji.
But Pasuma has come out to explain that his entry into the Hip-Hop genre is to help Fuji music and take it to the next level.
Since many Hip-Hop stars have infused Fuji into Hip-Hop why not the other way round? Last week, Paso who recently won the Fuji Musician of the Year Award.
Congrats on your last album listening party. How did it go?
It was wonderful. I felt good. I give thanks to God. I have been on this plan to do hip-hop for a long time.
My Manager, Afolabi Oyekoya, A021 Media now came up with the idea again.
He said Alhaji Pasuma, this is the right time for us to do this. I now said okay, lets do it and see what will come out of it.
What are we expecting now?
After this new Hip-Hop album the next is to try and bring out a new Fuji artiste. We are planning to do a Fuji competition. Its been a while since we have seen a new Fuji artiste come out. So we are trying to do a Fuji music competition, maybe we can pick a new Fuji artiste from there.
You now have a label…
Oh yes, I have my own label now, called Wasbah Records. We are Francofre at the moment. We are trying to put Quidot on it and Small Doctor with maybe 2 or 3 Fuji artistes later.
What made you go into Hip-Hop? You are doing well with Fuji?
Because we wanted to diversify. Diversity is very important to ones life.
That you are a Fuji musician does not mean you can’t do something else.
People still see me as a Fuji artiste but they see it that this guy really knows what he is doing and that he can do something nice. That is why we diversified.
