SIKIRU AYINDE BARRISTER'S RECOVERY CONCERT AND FUMAN'S AWAKENING.
RV has gathered that a Recovery Concert is being organised with the aim of raising funds for the treatment of Fuji Music Legend, Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister. Sources say the Recovery Concert would take place in Lagos and Ibadan [ Barrister has a large fan base in the two dynamic cities ] where his ardent listeners will have the opportunity of supporting him as he goes through this tough period of his life and career. The event which has received the blessings of Barrister's friend and fellow Fuji exponent, General Kollington Ayinla, and the leadership of the Fuji Musicians Association of Nigeria [ FUMAN ] will take place as soon as possible because funds are needed for Barrister's treatment. The sponsors of the concert and other associated events will be revealed to the public in two weeks time. The event will take place at the end of the Muslim Ramadan period.
Another interesting development is the decision of members of the Fuji Musicians Association of Nigeria [ FUMAN ] to open a Recovery Bank Account for Alhaji Agba. FUMAN members have also agreed to contribute 1000 Naira [ £5 ] each to the account. This gesture goes to show that the association has woken up to its responsibility in ensuring that Sikiru Ayinde Barrister recovers from the sickness that has kept him bedridden for some time now. However, RV thinks FUMAN needs to do more. The Association needs to approach the Presidency in Abuja for support because Barrister is a national hero who fought in the Civil War to keep Nigeria together. RV will keep readers informed about fresh developments concerning Alhaji Agba's sickness and attempts to ensure that he does not die needlessly.
