Abass Akande Obesere is not only going all out to prove the recent rape allegations levelled against him are entirely false, he’s also hoping to benefit promotionally and commercially from the scandal.
The Nigerian Fuji Star has released a DVD detailing his innocence, claiming he wants to expose his accusers.
Titled ‘Rape Scandal’ (Kosẹlẹri), the VCD’s cover artwork features a photo the alleged rape victim Olanike Olaiya, an elderly lady Alhaja Bola Omo Owo (the woman believed to have linked Obesere and Nike up) and the Fuji singer himself.
Kosẹlẹri translated into English means ‘it can never happen‘.
Obesere, reports say, made sure both women’s faces were featured on the cover so his numerous fans could believe his story. ‘I am sure everybody can recognize me, but I want people to also see the face of Alhaja Omo Owo so that they will all know she’s not a fake person’, Omo rapala is quoted as saying.
Although the Ibadan native claims the VCD was not made for commercial purposes, a huge number of his fans have been demanding for a copy. And we’re told sales have already been made. we could not confirm if these were legitimate or illegitimate sales.
Fuji music is a genre in Nigeria which probably has the highest number of core followers; every Obesere fan will find it absolutely compulsory to get a copy and that’s big bucks rolling in for the Fuji Star.
