Pasuma Wonder has been given an Honorary Citizenship of Georgia a few hours ago, and he couldn’t control his joy as he shared the news on his Instagram page.
Sharing a video of what occurred in the event, Pasuma wrote;
“Alhamdulillah for all the blessings.🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
I have been honoured in Georgia Atlanta, USA, as a Citizen of the State. Thanks to the Secretary of the State here in Georgia for this honorary citizenship of Georgia (Atlanta). My immeasurable thanks go to the Almighty God for this wonderful accolade.
To all my fans, at home and abroad, especially here in Atlanta Georgia, thanks for your endless support. May God bless you as you keep standing by me. We shall reap the fruits of our labour. Amen.”
Pasuma who has played in nearly every city in the United States, was given the award for his personal contribution and his effort in the music industry. Also, almost all Pasuma’s children are residing in the United States of America.
Here’s the video below;
Pasuma’s debut album “Recognition” was released in 1993. He has collaborated with several recording artists, such as Bola Abimbola and King Sunny Ade and has featured in Nigerian films such as Iyanje and Alenibare.
Between the late 90’s and early 2000s, Pasuma, propelled by this incurable facility for acquisition of pseudo-funky sobriquets, declared that he was ‘African Puff Daddy’. And by adopting such condescending title, what he lacked in critical thinking, he had in artistic foresight: upon adopting the sobriquet, he successfully harvested a herd of faithful disciples, a feat one could be tempted to dismiss as ordinary if not properly dissected.
