The former Lagos State governor and elder statesman, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, disclosed in an interview that he used to be a disc jockey.

The thought of the popular politician on the turn-table is hard to fathom, because of the political power he has amassed from himself.

Tinubu said, “But then I was an in-house DJ, not a commercial DJ. Teddy Pendergrass was my favourite and I kept myself updated on the music scene in America.”

“I was interested in music. I enjoy music, from the days of James Brown. I told you I followed Roy Chicago to Ado-Ekiti, without knowing. I was just lucky.”

“God just made me a professional because I could have ended up with the late Dr. Sikiru Ayinde Barrister!”

Speaking on the type of music trending in the present generation, compared to his days, he said: “You don’t have music now. You now have O foka sibe, O gbona feli feli. I love listening to jazz a lot.”
