In 1995, his band’s three-month tour in the US unexpectedly turned into a three-year stay due to threats from the military regime of Sani Abacha.

Ayuba had released an album supporting the release of political prisoners, including MKO Abiola, which led to the threats. During his time in the US, he pursued citizenship, enrolled in school, and considered a career in academia.

He met his wife and built a new life, thinking of leaving Fuji music behind. Ayuba confessed that he lost interest in Fuji music and wanted to become a lecturer, pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s, and Ph.D.

He eventually returned to Nigeria in 1998 after Abacha’s death but still considers himself a lecturer at heart.

He said; “I left for America with my full band members in 1995 for a summer show and others. We came to America for about three months and then returned to Nigeria.

“I returned to Nigeria in 1998 when Abacha died. The three years I stayed in America were by the grace of God because he is a good planner.

“When I was in America, I realized that I could only perform shows on weekends. My Mondays to Fridays were free. So, I enrolled in school. That was where I met my wife.

“After that, I took part in a lot of activities. Doing so was like building another foundation in America. That was not easy. From there, I completed my documentation and became an American citizen.

“I don’t see myself continuing in Fuji music, I believe I have done well. This is America, there’s more to explore in life, trusting that God has a plan”.

Asked if truly he almost lost interest in Fuji music, Ayuba said; “True, true true, particularly the kind of genre that I met myself singing Fuji. I’ve started developing a kind of interest in my education. From day one, if anybody asked me what would I wanted to become in life, I would love to become a lecturer or teacher. I can’t lie to you.

“I was thinking if I finished my bachelor’s degree, I would go for my master, and P.hD to be a lecturer. I don’t want the level of being a Fuji musician, I believe I’ve done well, and I’m OK, this is America, let me choose another line.”
