Allied International Club (UK)
The idea to Allied International Club was conceived and midwifed by a few enthusiastic gentlemen and a Lady namely Allied Jide Agbalaya, Allied Bayo King, Allied Afeez Oluwa, Allied Tunde Yinusa, Thomas Jaji, Ayo Ogunjimi, Late Monsuru Oliebol and Dupe Afelumo (Lady Asabo) coming together in the summer of 1989 during the Goldsworth Promotion organised by Prince Segun Seriki in association with Late Fuji Creator Alhaji Chief Dr Sikiru Ayinde Barrister. Due to our frequency at the shows and given our age as at that time and the love we had for Dr. Sikiru Ayinde and his music we formed Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister Organisation (ASABO). Our objective at the time was very clear (Friendship & commitment).
Over the years the purpose and vision of the club are well spelled out in our objectives most of which is to engage in charity works and promote African Arts and Culture while engaging in social and recreational exchange.
