More than eleven years after the demise of one of the pioneers of Fuji music, Sikiru Ayinde Balogun, popularly known as Ayinde Barrister, some of his widows have said that they would like to remarry.

In separate interviews, they unanimously agreed that it was difficult to fill the vacuum the late Fuji crooner left but some of them expressed the wish to get married again if they find a good man.

One of the widows, Kehinde Balogun, aged 50, revealed that finding a good man after the demise of her late husband was tough.

“It is not easy, but should a good man come along, I will remarry. It is not easy to come across truthful men these days.

“I was quite young when I got married to Alhaji and losing him has not been easy, but we can not question God.

“Being a widow has not been easy but God has been faithful, with the support of family and friends,” she said.

Expressing a similar view was Oluwayemisi Balogun, also aged 50. She explained that if it was God’s will for her to remarry, she will.

“In life, you never say never. You don’t know what God has destined for you, so it is important to always focus on the will of God.

“If God says I’d remarry, so be it. Marriage is a union that God created and like most women I’d want that too,” she said.

Another of his widows, Temilola Balogun, aged 40, also revealed that 12 years after the death of Alhaji Agba; Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, she was yet to find true love.

“If I find someone I love enough to share my life with him, why not? Finding true love is not easy these days, one has to tread with caution.

“So if tomorrow I find that true love, I’d remarry but until then, I’d keep praying to God for mercy and protection,” she said

The musician’s eldest widow, Adebisi Balogun, aged 65, however, stated that remarrying was not her priority as she would rather focus on her children and grandchildren.

“At this age, what is the point, my focus is to live a healthy life surrounded by my children and grandchildren,” she said.

Yetunde Balogun, aged 58, spoke along the same line, saying at this stage of her life remarrying was a non-issue to her.

“What will I be looking for again, I have lived life with my late husband, I am happy with the memories we shared.

“My children are getting married now, so it is just grandma duties I am doing and living my life to the fullest,” she said.

Yet another widow of Ayinde Barrister, Yinka Balogun, in her 40s, said that she has not given remarrying a thought.

“I have never thought about it honestly,” she said.

The music superstar, Sikiru Ololade Ayinde Balogun, was born on February 9, 1948, and died on December 16, 2010.

Better known by his stage name, Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, Balogun was a Yoruba-born songwriter, song producer and music performer.

Regarded as the pioneer of Fuji and 'Were' genre of music, Ayinde Barrister went on to release over 70 studio albums.
