Khan, in his short address to the congregation , described Leeds as “a welcoming city.” Abuja-based Enenche also prayed for Leeds to “become a city of destination,” for business and investments. The conference was rounded off in the early hours of Saturday with music performances from Dunsi Oyekan, Prospa , the Enenche’s’ daughter, Debbie and the Dunamis UK mass choir.

In a separate development , an exhibition on Fuji music – Fuji: A Opera – kicked off at the African Centre in London same Thursday, last week.
Billed to run till August 28, a press release from the organisers described it as “a multi-dimensional exhibition which tells the story of the fuji music genre – one of the most important in Nigeria’s history and without whom the Afrobeats artists who top the charts today (such as Burna Boy and Wizkid) would not be selling out stadiums across the world.”
The statement disclosed further that the genre’s “story will be told through fascinating archival footage of previous performances, audio installations and incredible memorabilia across the 60-year history of fuji music.”
