How Wasiu Agara died
News have emerged of how popular Fuji act, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Agara a.k.a. K1 De Ovation, passed away this afternoon at about 2 0’clock.
His sudden death sent shock waves round the length and breadth of Ogbomoso and beyond especially among Fuji music lovers who have grown to like his brand of music.
According to findings by ogbomosoinsightonline.com, the late musician had gone to the shop of his wife at Oja’gbo and had participated in the Sur (Irun Haila) prayer at about 1:30pm today.
Upon returning to his wife’s shop after the prayer round, he reportedly became hard pressed and so drove home at Ile-Iwe to ease himself “but from there he started to experience dizziness and so he put a call through to his wife to complain about his condition.
“The wife rushed home to attend to him. It was promptly decided that they seek medical attention at the Bowen University Teaching Hospital (BUTH), Ogbomoso. But he never reached the hospital as he gave up the ghost as the vehicle conveying him reached the gate of the health facility,” the source revealed.
Agara who was one of the topmost Fuji acts in Ogbomoso has since been buried according to Islamic rites.
Reacting, a Muslim brother, Alhaji Abdulrazaq Bello, though the news elicited sadness in him, exclaimed in joy after learning of the manner of Agara’s death, saying, “Alhaji Agara found favour in the sight of Allah, dying shortly after leaving the mosque for the Sur prayer is a good thing, Allah has received him into Al jannah.”
He was said to have played at an occasion yesterday, Sunday, March 7, with no sign of death written on him. He died at the age of 54.
