I Didn’t Brutalise Any Journalist At Oba Akamo’s Party, Insists Fuji Music Star, K1

208

Fuji music lord, Wasiu Olasunkanmi Marshal, popularly known as K1 de Ultimate, has denied reports making the rounds that he beat up broadcaster Wole Sorunke, aka MC Murphy, at the 60th birthday party of Oba Abdulfatai Akamo, the Olu of Itori in Ewekoro, Ogun State, on Thursday.
Surprisingly, broadcasters under the aegis of Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria (FIBAN), had a press conference, on Friday, alleging that the Fuji musician beat up the broadcaster at the party. FIBAN had also called on the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, to strip the musician of his ‘Mayegun of Yorubaland’ title, for the alleged offence.
FIBAN had equally claimed that K1 disrupted the party, which had some prominent persons in attendance, when “he and his boys brutalised, harassed and humiliated the FIBAN member over what they called a minor issue”. Their weighty allegation has since gone viral and forcing K1 to respond.
In a statement on Saturday, the spokesperson of the K1 organisation, Kunle Rasheed, maintained that the scenario painted by Sorunke and FIBAN was far from the truth.
According to him, “it is unfortunate that Mr. Sorunke and FIBAN are seriously looking for ways to malign King Wasiu Olasunkanmi Marshal who does not in anyway deserve that from them.
“K1 was never involved in any violence at that party. Indeed, many followed K1’s performance live through the social media that day and so it became a great wonder the point this monumental violence took place that the live cameras did not capture it. If indeed there was a fracas, we are maintaining that it had nothing to do with K1 and his stage where he performed. It’s believed that the radio presenter had issues with people at the party and because he is known to K1, he rescued him and took him to his stage, away from the scene of the incident. How then can this amount to beating up the broadcaster, when indeed he saved him that fateful evening. This can be coroborrated by people present at the occasion.
“For the avoidance of doubt, K1’s title, ‘Mayegun of Yorubaland’ is a solid statement that the man stands for peace. Anything that happened to him (Sorunke) has nothing to do with Alhaji (K1)”, he concluded.
