How time flies!Â It all happened like yesterday when Prof. MoshoodÂ AbiolaÂ Peller, who was unarguably Africaâ€™s greatest magician of his time, was gruesomelyÂ murdered at his Lagos home exactly 20 years ago.
It is however relieving that even in death,Â the memories of the Oyo State-born magician has remained indelible in the minds of his family,Â fans and contemporaries.
In life, Prof. Peller,Â as he was famously known, took magic practice to a dizzying height,Â a feat that earned him the respect of his contemporaries at home and abroad.
Interestingly, followingÂ his passing,Â some of his children have taken upÂ the baton of magic, all in the bid to keep the memories of their father alive.
In particular, one of his children, Saheed Peller, a.k.a Zeeto, has passionately been involved in the practice. Indeed, theÂ Law graduate of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-IfeÂ is making no mean efforts to fill the vacuum created by his father in theÂ world of magic.
Â So far,Â fair-complexionedÂ Zeeto is known to have revived Â the art of magic in the country as his services are mostly being sought by corporate organisations.
As proof of his dedication to the art,Â Zeeto has moved up the ladder in the world of magic by securing a seat as a member of the internationally accredited league of magicians.Â By this,Â he has been able to fill the vacant slot created by the death of his father. Zeetoâ€™sÂ elevation in the global circle was announced at theÂ ongoingÂ Convention of the International BrotherhoodÂ of Magicians and the Society of American Magicians in theÂ United States of America.
Meanwhile,Â it was gathered that the family of the late magician would be rolling out the drums for his 20th anniversary.
Until his death,Â Prof. Peller was a prominent member of the internationally accredited association of magicians, where he competed and was crowned the best magician in Africa.
