Ailing fuji music icon, Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, is incommunicado, P.M. Entertainment can reveal.
A family source disclosed that Alhaji Agba as he is popularly called, has been discharged from hospital and that he is now resting in a private residence.
But another source told P.M. Entertainment that the fuji musician is still in the hospital responding to treatment and that the discharge tale is a diversionary measure to prevent his teeming friends and fans from troubling him because he was advised to rest very well due to the nature of the operation he went through in India.
All attempts to either speak with him or the family proved abortive as his cell phone is permanently switched off.
Meanwhile, Barristerâ€™s fans in and outside the country have been calling to inquire about the state of health of their music idol.
To douse the tension of the apprehensive fans and well wishers, his recording company, Lati Alagbada and Sons, recently released about 30 live performances of the veteran musician on audio compact disc.
P.M. Entertainment learnt that the selected numbers are his live shows from the 70s till date and they include Barry on stage, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, Okuku Day, Agilinti, Up National and Oloto at 50, among others.
