Ibadan-born popular Fuji star, Alhaji Saheed Okunola, aka Saidi Osupa, has revealed he has had to refund some money for shows just because they clashed with his classes. 

Osupa, who said he wants his education to reflect in his lifestyle, is a student at department of political science of the distance learning Centre, DLC, of the University of Ibadan, UI.

The artiste had shocked many of his fans about three years ago when he enrolled for a degree at the premier university.



According to him, “I enrolled as a regular student. Therefore, I attend classes and sit for exams by myself. I am not even given celebrity treatment when my shows abroad clash with my school’s time-table. 

In an interview with the The Punch, Osupa revealed how his family took the decision, saying they thought he was joking.

He said, “They thought it was a joke. Even my first born who just finished studying at the University of Ilorin called me on my matriculation day, which, coincidentally, was also his convocation day. He jokingly said, “Remember the son of whom you are’, which was what I told him when he first gained admission.”

Osupa added that his priority was with his education as he had even cancelled some shows because they clashed with his classes.

On his recent hip-fuji album, he said he adopted the style in line with the music trend in the country.

The way hip-hop artistes have been moving, I see this as a wheel of change and I have to keep moving with the trend. I want to prove to people that I am dynamic and can do any kind of music.” Osupa added.

The Singer cum actor also noted that his future projects were best kept to himself as revealing them would jeopardise his efforts and endanger his projects.

It is no longer news that the duo of Pasuma and Saheed Osupa were known to be sworn enemies. Their rivalry began decades ago with lots of conflicts coming from their threshold.

However, Osupa said he no longer had any issue with Pasuma or any other person.
