March 12, 2017 – Wasiu Ayinde K1: I Became A Millionaire At 19 While Working As Customs Clearing Agent At Apapa Wharf Lagos

Fuji Legend Wasiu Ayinde who recently clocked 60 talked to Sunday Sun about his firsts in an exclusive interview conducted at his mansion in Ijebu Ode.

See excerpts:

My First Day On Stage: 

As a professional, I started when I was 15 and ever since I have been doing music.

My First Breakthrough

It was an event I went for on the Island and definitely a lot of people were there. A lot of my mates, junior ones and senior ones. Some saw me and said, “Oh, he is playing music” and those that saw me later said “oh, we saw you on stage”. Instantly, I became a role model for them. Everybody wants to be like me.

My First pet?
A pussycat, that was the first pet I got. It’s colours were white and black. But it died.

My First million?

I made my first million naira when I was 19 years. Aside music, I was a Customs clearing agent at Apapa Wharf then.
My First album?

My first album was made in 1979. It was titled, Iba. When we first came out, we also appealed to people like “I throw my respect o.”

My First musical video?

I think it was from my second album I made my first musical video. It was titled, Talazo.

My First girlfriend?
My first girlfriend gave birth to my first child and that was 40 years ago. I was living at Isale Eko then.

My First trip abroad?
That was in 1976. It was beautiful and out of this world. I felt good.
My First designer wear and watch?

It was by Dakova, my friend. I also love Vivid Imagination, my friend too. My first designer’s watch was by Piaget Abel.

  1. I don’t believe you were a millionaire at 19, he was a one time Parker behind Sikiru Ayinde, I know him as far as I can remember I leave at Ojo-Giwa, his family house is on Idumagbo Avenue, isale Agbede Junction near (Nepa) office, I was there when he came first during the competition inside Onola playing ground, he didn’t look like anyone that had a million Naira, Alhaji that amount then is serious money.

  2. K1 mark your word’s, you said Dr.sikiru Ayinde barrister is not Fuji creator,then who is ? You or who ?you are all bunch of Lie’s. Making noise after the death of the hero,history can never be in written.Wasiu Ayinde you saved under late sikiru ayinde barrister father of you all,you supposed to be honest and thankful,not to down grade late.sikiru ayinde barrister people’s are watching you

  3. I hate when people lie so much to boost their ego. This guy has achieved a lot even more than most of his peer but that doesn’t mean he has to exaggerate his achievements to show people before he gets to where he is today. When Chief MKO Abiola was alive he narrated his story about he ate egg for the first time in his life when he visited her fiancée Simbiat who later become his wife. The first President of the United States, George Washington came from rich background and Abraham Lincoln another US president who later freed Slaves came from poor background but they have one achievement that is, they were both President of United States. The Hollywood Actor Tyler Perry was once an homeless before and it was written in his autobiography biography.

    This is one of the reasons why I normally criticize this guy because he is not straight forward and lies a lot to portray himself more than his achievements . Most of her fans and friends never caution him instead they see him as Demi-God who they don’t want to criticize. The respect they give is just too much than what he has achieved in life.

    If this guy was a millionaire at that the age of nineteen, he would have gone back school when dropped out due to financial constraint . He never mentioned he was a stage Parker to Late Sikiru Ayinde Barrister who was a reformer of Fuji music. This is a lie of the Century. Can anyone tells me the age of his first born? all I know is Wasiu Ayinde never had any child who is 40 years old or older. When you want to tell a lie, try to justify it with some little facts. His first album was Talazo 84. With all these lies some people may doubt his age whether he is 60 yet. He made his money from politics through ex governor Fashola.

    Whosoever wrote the above story must go back to get his/her fact straight. Even though you are once a poor man before you become successful people will respect you a lot for your hard work not by trying to overstate your achievement.

  4. Wasiu first album was Iba 1979-1980.It was Talazo ’84 that shoot him to lime light and ever since he has been unstoppable. I may not agree with him being a millionaire as asserted but he has since contributed a lot to Fuji music
    Jilo take note!

    • Prince, to my understanding you are one of his die hard fan but you should not support him for coming to the public for telling such big lie. May I ask you, can you beat your chest that Wasiu Ayinde was a millionaire when he was age 19. How can this guy said he has been traveling since 1976. When you want to tell lies, note that there some other people who are closer to you and know a little bit about you. Late Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister had been visiting UK ever before Wasiu dropped out of school. My aunt lived in UK when Dr. Sikiru Ayinde visited London UK in 1977 and I can bet you Wasiu was still a stage Parker to the late Ayinde by then. If Wasiu Ayinde never dropped out of school, the estimated graduating year should be 1978 or 1979. He is a contemporary of Kunle Atoyegbe who is also my senior brother age mate and Kunle Atoyegbe finished secondary school around 78 because my brother graduated 1978.

      I don’t want to go over this over and over but just to let you know that this guy is a big liar. Running his mouth doesn’t change his status but he needs to be truthful and be more humble. That is why his Junior colleague like Obesere, Saheed Osupa & others never respect him. This is the guy who was placing himself over Alhaji Kollington as Fuji King. Late Ayinde Barrister and Alhaji Kollington were the ones that promulgate Fuji music. Wasiu is just an opportunist.

  5. Jilo-Wasiu’s first album was in 1979/80.titled Iba
    It was Talazo ’84 that shoot him to lime light.
    I may not agree with him being a millionaire as asserted but he has contributed a lot to Fuji
    Music.

  6. WASIU,

    YOU ARE A BLOODY LIER.

    ANYWAY, YOU ARE AN IJEBU MAN.
    IT IS YOUR CULTURE TO BE LIVING IN DARKNESS.

    So after all the inheritance of this world, what is next.

    Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour ?

    WITHOUT CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE, YOU ARE COMPLETELY NOTHING !

    HELL IS WAITING FOR YOU WITHOUT JESUS CHRIST!

    WITH ALL YOUR BILLION NAIRA
    WITH ALL YOU MILLION DOLLARS
    WITH ALL YOUR MILLION BRITISH POUNDS STERLING
    WITH ALL YOUR MILLION CANADIAN DOLLARS
    WITH ALL YOUR HOUSES ALL OVER THE WORLD
    AND WITH ALL YOUR LOVE FOR WOMEN FOR SELF SATISFACTION

    YOUR ARE TOTALLY EMPTY WITHOUT JESUS CHRIST IN YOUR LIFE.

    DO NOT END IN HELL !
    EVEN WITH ALL THE ALFAS AND IMAMS THAT CANNOT SAFE THEMSELVES FROM ETERNAL HELL, AND DECEIVING YOU, ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST TODAY AND BEG FOR FORGIVENESS OF SINS, HE WILL SURELY FORGIVE YOUR SINS.

    AFTER ALL YOUR ILLEGAL DEALS DURING THE TIME OF OJUOLAPE, TUNDE TULAMPA, AND YOU ESCAPED ARREST BY TUNDE IDIAGBON, YOU KNOW WHAT I AM TAKING ABOUT !
    WHAT OF ALL THE ILLEGAL JOINT DEALS WITH SATI RAMON – YOUR BUSINESS PARNER.

    REPENT TODAY, AND YOUR SINS SHALL BE FORGIVEN !

    A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE !

    BUT IF YOU ENJOY BEING DECEIVED BY SATAN, CARRY ON !
