Ent Africa: Being a celeb doesn’t make you immortal –Malaika


Being a celeb doesn’t make you immortal –Malaika
Popular Nigeria Fuji musician, Alhaji Sulaimon Alao, popularly known as Malaika, has said that being a celebrity doesn’t make you an immortal being, noting that he also has his own trying periods.
In his defence against an allegation regarding what led to his accident last year, the ace singer noted that contrary to the claims that he was drunk on the day the incident happened, that there was no alcohol inside the car that got involved in an accident on Ikorodu Road in Lagos.


Maliaka said, “Being a celebrity doesn’t mean you are an immortal being; I also go through trying periods. There was no alcohol inside the car and we were not drunk. It was a truck that hit my car from behind; it wasn’t only my car that got damaged. That day wasn’t a pleasant experience, but I thank God nobody died because the car was beyond repair. The driver of the truck later claimed that the brake failed.”
Speaking about the first time he visited Mecca for Hajj in 1999, he said the place looked like a paradise on earth. He stated, “Before I had the opportunity to go to Mecca, my prayers had been answered but I felt I needed to thank God for the things he had done for me.
“If anyone questions why people go to Mecca every year, the person does not think well. I cannot describe the experience; one has to go there to understand the special feeling and atmosphere.”
He added, “Rivalry is in every business, not just fuji music. Personally, I don’t believe in violence. Once I have issues with my colleagues, I try to settle things amicably.
“I am happy with the growth of fuji music. If fuji music has lost its relevance as some people say, I will not be going to shows on weekends and sometimes during the week.”
