Based on the semblance in their voices on stage and chosen genre, Alhaji Oladeinde Samson Atare has come out to debunk claims that he was tutored by another Fuji star, Alhaji Sulaimon Adio Oyeneye otherwise known as Atawewe.


The Ikorodu born Fuji star also refuted that he has been under the shadow of this colleague in the past while putting things in proper perspective, Atare Samson revealed that the only relationship he has with Atawewe does not go beyond performing live on stage at times and inviting each other to personal shows.

On allegations of any quarrel between both singers, Atare debunks the truthfulness in such news and revealed that the only way such rumour could have festered in the first place was because he didn’t invite Atawewe to his coming birthday party and this was due to previous disappointment.


In his words,


“I have a cordial relationship with Alhaji Sulaimon Adio Oladele Oyeneye otherwise known as Atawewe although I have invited him for my 3 album launch in the past which he didn’t show up, this is why I have decided to invite another good Fuji artist to my coming album launch.


“It is total falsehood that I was trained on how to sing by Atawewe. Since I started Fuji, I have never for a day asked any other Fuji artist to train me on the craft as all I know today was innate. The only person I can say I looked up to as a mentor was the Late Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde otherwise called Barrister. I can also say that we sound alike on stage but aside this; we have been independent since inception. Pasuma has also inspired me.”

Atare Samson who began his music run since 1986 is set to host a birthday party that will play host to Alhaji Sulaimon Alao Malaika Friday 9th August 2019 at Samelot Hotel & Suites behind Nasfat Akasoleri, Ikorodu from 2:00 PM till 9:00 PM.


This birthday party is also scheduled to double as the launch of his fourth and fifth album titled, ‘Relationship’ and ‘Assorted’ respectively. His previous three albums include; ‘Breakthrough’, ‘Thick Leather’ and ‘Injustice’.
