“All my songs teach morals. They are intellectually driven. If we have them in books, generations yet unborn would benefit from the morals in the books” said Osupa
He mentioned that the books, when published, would be archival materials due to the cultural colouration embedded in his songs.
He added that the book will be ready in six months time.
In his remark, Lawal expressed the readiness of the state to support the initiative which will be highly beneficial to Ogun youths.

“Saheed Osupa’s songs, when converted to books will aid teaching of citizenship education in tertiary Institutions and civic education in pre-tertiary schools.
