Fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde, popularly known as K1 De Ultimate has dismissed the report that he physically attacked a broadcaster, Wole Sorunke aka MC Murphy in a party.
Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria (FIBAN) had accused K1 and his crew of beating MC Murphy, last Thursday, at the birthday party of Oba Abdulfatai Alamo, the Olu of Itori, Ewekoro, Ogun State.
FIBAN, in the statement, said the alleged violent conduct of K1 makes him unfit for the Mayegun of Yoruba title conferred on him as the group called on the Alaafin of Oyo, HRM Oba Lamidi Adeyemi to strip the musician of the chieftaincy title.
Reacting to the allegations, the spokesperson of the K1 organization, Kunle Rasheed, said the musician was not involved in any violent incident during the party.
Ayinde claimed that FIBAN was looking for ways to “malign” the musician, noting that K1 does not deserve such.
Part of the statement reads, “It is unfortunate that Mr. Sorunke and FIBAN are seriously looking for ways to malign King Wasiu Olasunkanmi Marshal who did not in any way 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 has nothing to do with K1 and his stage where he performed.
“It was believed that the radio presenter had issues with people at the party and because he is known to K1, he was rescued 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 corroborated by people present on the occasion. For the avoidance of doubt, K1s 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)
