    The only reasonable fuji musician that teaches & lectures our young generations a lot of lessons about life is now missing. What a great lost? I pray that may Almighty God bless him with first class paradise! (Alijanat Firidausa)

  4. May The Almighty Allah grant Haji Ayinde Al-Jaana. He truly created Fuji music. He nurtured it,lived it and made a success of it, while hugely successful himself. A one off mega star and a true legend of our time whose understanding, good grasp and excellent ability to use Yoruba language cleverly made Fuji genre seem easy to sing and pleasure to listen to. (The more reason why there are more many Fuji singers than any other type of Nigerian or African traditional music). He passed well for an Islamic scholar through the use of his music to lecture his listeners especially about being good and subsequent debt of death. We have really lost a true Nigerian. Adieu Barrister! (Akanni Ogun is a London based Haji Ayinde's No1 Fan.
