Fuji maestro Sikiru Ayinde Barrister has died, aged 62. Unconfirmed reports say the Yoruba music star passed away at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London, around 5am this morning.
Born Sikiru Ayinde, the musician, a veteran of the Nigerian Civil War, was (along with Ayinla Kollington) one of the two greatest exponents of Fuji music, who did much to popularise the genre.
At the height of his fame, Barrister headed a 25-piece band, the Supreme Fuji Commanders. He cut over 40 records, among them “Fuji Garbage“.
