Fuji icon, Alhaji Abass Qudus Akande Obesere, fondly addressed as Omo Rapala, has launched his foundation called ‘Obesere Soludero Foundation’, which is targeted at empowering and alleviating the poverty of the masses.
Meanwhile, Alh Obesere, who is still basking in the euphoria of the huge success of the previous album ‘Ojurawonlo’, which was a sold out, has a new album entitled “The Bitter Truth’ to his credit.
Speaking with R about the bold steps he is taking said it was not easy releasing the album due to tight performance schedules home and abroad but “I thank God it will be out tomorrow.” He added that the album would be a sold out too, reiterating that despite time, he made sure the six tracked album was solid.
“The Obesere you know is full of energy that never disappoints. I have little time to rest, despite that, I made sure the content was deep and awesome. I leave the rest to the fans to judge”, he said.
Asked why the foundation came at this time, Papa Tosibe replied: “I feel it is just the right time God wants it to surface. It is the best time people need such thing to make them feel loved, especially the hopeless.
He, however, added that the foundation secured an hour radio programme in Ibadan to specially entertain the people and discuss how to better their lives. “The foundation, Obesere Soludero, has one hour airtime on Raypower 95.1 Ibadan every Thursday between 7pm- 8pm, to entertain the people and allow them to share their needs.”
