Ayuba, during the interview, shared for the very first time why he relocated from Nigeria and became a citizen of the UK.
He noted that his decision to leave Nigeria was because of a song he released in 1995 demanding the release of Chief Moshood Abiola, the country’s duly elected president, during the 1993 general elections.
The Fuji singer noted that Gen Sani Abacha’s government at the time had placed a bounty on his head, and his only option was to flee the country.

Why Ayuba abandoned Islam for Christianity
Legit.ng recalls a report from a while back about Mr Bonsue, where he shared his reason for dumping his childhood religion, Islam, for Christianity.
Most Fuji musicians in Nigeria are Muslims, largely because the genre is an offshoot of the Arabic religion.
Fuji music emanated from ‘Were,’ another music genre popularly played during the Ramadan period in those days.
