Thursday, August 18, 2023, marked the international premiere of FUJI: A Opera as the Exhibition, celebrating all things Fuji music, hit London for the summer.

Now open to the public, FUJI: A Opera at The Africa Centre is a multi-dimensional exhibition that tells the story of the Fuji music genre, one of the most important in Nigeria’s history, and without whom the Afrobeats artists who top the charts today (such as Burna Boy and Wizkid) would not be selling out stadiums across the world.

The opening night welcomed exceptional guests for an evening of festivities, including opening words from His Excellency; Ambassador Ishola Tunji Sarafa (Nigerian High Commissioner to the UK), exhibition Founder Bobo OmotayoOba Nsugbe (Chairman, The Africa Centre), and DJ Abass

Following his keynote speech, leading fuji legend K1 De Ultimate delighted guests with a surprise live performance, alongside international fuji artists Asimiu Ajebori, Lateef Ayinla and Atawewe who also took to the stage.
