His dreams were centered around securing a spot on the national team for the FIFA U-16 World Championship in China in 1985.

However, the Fuji star faced disappointment as he failed to make the cut for the prestigious tournament.

Recalling the moment of rejection, Pasuma said;

“I was a footballer, so I was invited for Kodak, but I decided to go into music because I wasn’t picked to go to Kodak for the World Cup then, so I now said I want to be a musician straight. I was a footballer before.”


Despite the setback in his football career, Pasuma did not let the disappointment dampen his spirits.

Instead, he channeled his focus and passion towards music, ultimately carving a niche for himself in the industry.
