    Saheed Osupa (all titles removed) is a wonderful Fuji musician and one of the most successful singers in Fuji industry.

    But why does he tend to think of himself as being greater than he’s actually is? You call yourself Obanla (a great king) because someone calls himself Oga nla (great master). Does he want to equate himself with God?

    He calls himself king of music, while all he can sing successfully and professionally is Fuji (only Fuji). There are many types of music and everyone has his field of expertise. Osupa’s field of specialization is Fuji music. He can’t rap, or sign reggae or pop or blues or other types of popular music worldwide, and he calls himself king of music worldwide.

    Why doesn’t he call himself only king of Fuji? After all, he’s a king only among his fans. Is he the most popular musician in Japan, or Australia or Canada or Russia or the UK or Brazil? Why all this exaggeration?

    PSY - Gangnam Style has gathered 2.6 billion views on Youtube.com alone. There are pop stars who’ve sold hundreds of millions of copies of albums. I’m yet to see Saheed Osupa’s video that has up to 500,000 views.

    Adele is currently worth 125 million dollars. Justin Bierber is worth 200 million dollars. Beyonce is worth 450 million dollars. Elton John is now worth 320 million dollars. How much is Osupa worth? I can guarantee you that he’s not worth up to 20 million in terms of dollars; and he calls himself king of music.

    Michael Jackson is called king of pop, not music, and he’s 10,000 times more successful in life and death, than Osupa. Osupa isn’t the richest Fuji musician in Nigeria, nor is he the most popular. He’s not the richest musician in Nigeria, nor is he the most popular. Why call himself king of music worldwide?

    I don’t know why comparatively lower successes go into people’s head. If Pasuma is teasing him, should be tease himself? Osupa that I know used to have a wonderful voice many years ago, but now, his voice is hoarse, though he remains a wonderful Fuji singer.

    He once said, “Awa kawe” (meaning “We are educated”). Who is he talking to? Perhaps he got a first degree or highest, a master’s degree. What’s the big deal in that? There are millions of degree holders in Nigeria and billions of them all over the world, and so what’s so special about his education?

    Perhaps it’s because most of his fans are illiterate and semi-illiterate, and a one-eyed person is a king among the blind. That’s why being educated is a big deal to them.

    Saheed Osupa is successful not because of his education, but because of his talent, persistence, endurance, innovation, prayers, efforts, luck and destiny. There are many graduates that can’t feed themselves. Founder of Vrigin Airlines, founder of Facebook, founder of Apple, aren’t graduates, nor are they illiterates. There are many hugely profitable musicians in North America and all over the world, whose successes make Saheed Osupa pale into insignificance. There are many other professionals who are also far, far richer and popular than he’s, and they’re not graduates.

    I’ve come across Nigerian celebrities that don’t even know Saheed Osupa, and they don’t care who he’s.

    I like some of Osupa’s songs, but when people become proud and conceited, I like to think twice. Why does he think of himself more than he really is?
