All is set for the first Fuji Charity Concert in honour of the late Fuji music creator, Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, in the United States.
The concert, organised by a US-based Sikiru Ayinde Barrister Global Fans Foundation, will hold at Maryland on September 16, at 4 pm and is expected to feature a number of fuji stars.
Reported to be on the list are Sefiu Alao, Adewale Barrishowkey, Besco Wonder, Barrymade, Qudus Balogun and other showbiz stars including Lancaster, Baba Gboin and Mr Latin.
Also some royal fathers like the Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbdulRasheed Akanbi, are also expected to grace the occasion with a view to showing their love for the accomplishments of the late Alhaji.
According to the anchorperson of the event, Monsurat Morenikeji, the event was her group’s contribution to the ongoing immortalisation of Barrister’s name as the pathfinder of Fuji music which Nigeria exported to international social scene.
“Barrister is a global brand which should not be allowed to die, hence our initiative to add more value to his image at international level. There is no doubting the fact that we are going to record success. We have received numerous support both from Nigeria and here in the states. We are looking forward to the day with lots of promises,” she said.
Morenikeji also said that some select associates of Barrister would be given award of recognition for their support and loyalty to the late musician during his lifetime and after he had passed on. Notable among the awardees include Alhaji Mojeed Kareem and Elder Dayo Odeyemi.
