“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,” he shared during the interview.

Born Wasiu Alabi, Pasuma’s journey into music began in 1984 when he started crafting his own songs, drawing inspiration from his idol, K1 de Ultimate, who released his groundbreaking album “TALAZO 84” in the same year.
