Lagos — The Fuji industry is presently in a state of shock as two of its bigshot artistes, Alhaji Abass Akande Adeniyi popularly known as Obesere and Sulaimon Adio a.k.a Atawewe, this week were both involved in fatal car crashes at differernt locations around Lagos.
The first victim, Atawewe, three weeks ago took a break from his musical tour of the United States and returned back to the country to perform for his fans during this festive period.
Speaking to Leadership in Lagos, Atawewe's Media publicist who coincidentally is also one of Obesere's frontmen, said the fair complexioned dancehall Fuji artiste was involved in the ghastly motor accident with his Honda Civic car in Ikorodu while returning from a show in the early hours of Sunday, December 28, 2008. Atawewe and the three people in the car with him including his brother, Alade, were badly injured.
The brother, whose head was seriously damaged, is currently undergoing treatment at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), the media publicist disclosed.
While still in shock over Atawewe's dilemna, the news came in that Atawewe's colleague,Obesere, also had a serious car accident somewhere in Ishagamu on Monday December 29, 2008 the following day after Atawewe's ordeal.
Obesere was said to be driving in an unknown car around Ishagamu when the accident occured and his entourage were also badly injured. "The cars are a write-off', Olusoji said, describing the state of the vehicles which the artistes rode in at the time of the accidents.
