“I dropped out of school in Form Four but my late twin brother who was educated  impacted so much on me.

“Apart from his immeasurable contributions to my successes, he made me understand that education was the best legacy to bequeath on one,’’ he said.

The  musician said that he was presently under the tutelage of a personal teacher, adding that he was now  more  educated and conscious of his obligations as a citizen.

He expressed regrets at his inability to access western education earlier, vowing to  ensure that his children got the best of  western education.

Adebisi also  urged Nigerians,  especially musicians,  not to take education for granted in whatever they do.

The musician, who just returned from a tour of  Europe, described the death of his twin brother as the saddest incident that impacted on him.

“My saddest experience in life was over the death of my educated twin brother  who did all to encourage and enlighten me.

“He brought modern touches to my music and changed  me from believing that one cannot be a musician without being a tout or engaging in all forms of social vices,’’ Adebisi said.

Speaking on his alleged political affiliation, he told NAN that he was not a card-carrying member of any political party, adding that he voted during elections for whoever had programmes that would benefit the people.

The musician urged the people to discountenance such rumour, saying his profession  allowed him to relate with everybody irrespective of political affiliation.

Adebisi  also described Alhaji Wasiu Alabi, popularly known as` Pasuma,’ as his role model. (NAN)
