July 19, 2015 – Fuji Star Adewale Ayuba Turns Born Again Christian “The Day I Gave My Life To Jesus Christ Was My Happiest Day”
Fuji star Adewale Ayuba who turned 50 few weeks ago in a quick chat with a Lagos-based Magazine publisher narrated how his study of the bible brought him closer to Jesus.
The musician who claimed that he is now a born again Christian said he had to let go of people’s opinion before he could surrender his life to Jesus Christ.
See interview excerpts:
When do you consider as your happiest day?
I will not lie to you. When I remember the day I gave my life to the Lord Jesus Christ, I am happy, the day I became a born again, that was my happiest day. Now I realise this life is to worship God.
As a Fuji musician from Islamic background, it is strange that you are a born again. What made you take that decision?
It’s what brought me to Fuji music. I don’t know. I remember I had a lot of Alfas who came to pray for me and when they left, I would still go to my room to read the Bible. I think my conviction was in the Bible. It got to a stage that my children would be laughing. They would say, ‘Daddy, choose one’. But I did not want to pick because of Fuji.
Fuji has Islamic origin, my background, how would my family feel? I don’t want to offend this, I don’t want to offend that but I discovered that religion or belief has nothing to do with your musical life and no one says we are listening to your music because of your personal life or so.
Ayuba who is married to Azuka, a member of the Living Faith Church International currently attends Winners Chapel. He has on many occasions led worship at some branches of the Redeemed Christian Church Of God , RCCG in Lagos
