NEWS: Fuji Artiste, Pasuma In a Hit and Run case which led to a Loss of Life, see details below...

One of Nigeria's most prominent Fuji musicians, Wasiu
Alabi Odetola, popularly known as Pasuma Wonder is
currently enmeshed in a murder mess.
From all indications, the Fuji veteran who recently
celebrated 20 years on stage may be on his way into
police net if matters are not well handled. Eye witnesses
are saying that a member of the convoy of the Fuji star
over-ran a teenage fan after Pasuma's vehicle knocked
down the victim on their way from a show at Idimu-
Council area of Alimosho Local Government Area of
Lagos State.
The victim, Bidemi, a 12-year old fan of the 'Orobokibo'
singer is said to have been lurking around to get a
glimpse of the star as he was leaving the St. Augustine
Events Hall, Isheri-Idimu where the show took place
only to lose his life in the process. 'Pasuma was trying to
avoid the area boys as he was leaving and so he was
driving fast and it happened that he knocked the boy
down and the vehicle behind him ran over the boy', an
eye witness told NET correspondent.
Pasuma is said to have been driving in his newly
acquired Range Rover Sports and did not bother to slow
down to find out what had happened. 'He sped off
without caring', another eye witness said.
But the singer's minders insist he's innocent and
absolutely unaware of what happened after he left the
event venue. Those close to Pasuma told NET he wasn't
initially aware of the situation and that the decease may
have been hit by a random car coming behind the
NET investigations reveal that 'Paso', as the singer is
fondly called in the streets was trying to avoid the area
boys who were desperate to extort him. It has become
an accepted tradition in the Fuji industry, for Fuji artistes
who perform in an area to 'settle' the area boys because
they form the largest percentage of their fan base.
Pasuma according to a few 'area boys' who were at the
scene of the incident said the self- acclaimed Oganla of
Fuji is fond of not 'settling' the area boys and it was in
this bid to avoid being extorted that led to the untimely
death of the teenager.
'Paso no dey like to settle. Na because e no wan settle
make am drive fast like that', one of the area boys said.
Other sources say he actually tipped fans and some
miscreants, but like Oliver Twist, some camps wanted
more and the musician sped off after he had had
enough. Speaking to NET in a telephone conversation,
Pasuma's manager, Afolabi Oyekoya refused to confirm
or deny the allegations. He was yet to issue an official
statement as at press time, and NET enquiries were left
The family of the victim could not be reached for
comment. Our correspondents' visit to the St. Augustine
Events Centre, venue of the show did not yield results as
the management refused to comment on the incident.
All efforts to get the police officers at Idimu Police Station
Area M also proved abortive, as the officers refused to
entertain any questions and directed that we referred the
inquiry to the office of the Police Public Relations Officer,
PPRO, whose number was switched off at the time.
Pasuma is not the first celebrity to be involved in a hit
and run. Years ago, the current president of the Actors'
Guild of Nigeria, Ibinabo Fiberesima was arrested and
imprisoned for killing a Lagos doctor. Also, last year,
singer Terry G was alleged to have been involved in a hit
and run situation. It is not clear how the case ended.
