In a recent interview with NET, Pasuma talked about his music career, his upcoming and first pop album ‘My World’ and more.
Wasiu Alabi Adetola also known as Pasuma said he got his inspiration from the streets and he still love Fuji music more.
Read excerpts from the interview below.
When asked about his album, Pasuma said “The album is ready. It will be released on the 30th of July. It is a 15-track album that features pop stars like Tiwa Savage, Oritsefemi, Terry G, Phyno, Olamide, Patoranking etc. The album is titled My World.
We have released a couple of songs off the album and the acceptance has been great.The first track we pushed out was ‘Abo’, it’s a dancehall song, we followed it up with ‘Ife’, the one that features Tiwa Savage.
After releasing dancehall and R&B singles, I decided to do a rap single titled ‘Ogede Ti Pon’. I chose not to feature anyone on the rap single because I don’t want people to see it like ‘Ife’ blew because Tiwa Savage is on it.
And recently, we dropped ‘Oruka’”
On inspiration behind his music, Pasuma said “I got the inspiration from the street. And at the same time, I have been doing pop music before now. I can say I’m one of those who started pop music in Nigeria. I am not new in the game.”
On working with other Nigerian acts, he said “The experience has been wonderful. They all love me and see me as their brother and as their daddy.
Like when I met D’Banj, he was like
Baba Pasuma, and I said don’t call me Baba, and he was like he has been listening to my music since he was a little boy. So that shows the respect they have for me. So working with them has been very interesting. I am enjoying the swag that goes with the hip hop thing.
Even when I am doing my Fuji, I still do it with swag. I am enjoying it, it makes me feel younger and I am happy about that. I think if I want to come back to this world again, I will still want to be Pasuma.”
