Renowned Fuji musician Adewale Ayuba has explained why he moved to America and converted to Christianity.

Ayuba talked to Teju Babyface about his new life in the United States, his religion, and his music career.

He revealed that he and one of his band members traveled to America in 1995 for a three-month summer tour.
Ayuba stated that they were unable to return to Nigeria following their performance because of threats from Sani Abacha, the late military ruler of the state.

The musician claimed he was intimidated after releasing an album calling for the liberation of political prisoners, including the late Moshood Abiola.

Ayuba stated that following Abacha’s death, he went to Nigeria to play at the 1998 Benson and Hedges Concert.

The singer said;

“I left for America with my full band members in 1995 for a summer show and others. We came to America for about three months and then returned to Nigeria.

“I returned to Nigeria in 1998 when Abacha died. The three years I stayed in America were by the grace of God because he is a good planner.

“When I was in America, I realized that I could only perform shows on weekends. My Mondays to Fridays were free. So, I enrolled in school. That was where I met my wife.

“After that, I took part in a lot of activities. Doing so was like building another foundation in America. That was not easy. From there, I completed my documentation and became an American citizen.

“I don’t see myself continuing in Fuji music, I believe I have done well. This is America, there’s more to explore in life, trusting that God has a plan.”
