‘I never laid hands on broadcaster’ — Kwam 1 denies assault claim

1 Mins read

Nigerian Fuji star Wasiu Ayinde also known as Kwam 1, has denied claims that he brutalised Wole Sorunke, an Ogun-based broadcaster, at an event.

Sorunke had accused the Fuji singer and his boys of assaulting him at the 60th birthday party of Abdulfatai Akamo, the Olu of Itori, in Ewekoro local government area of Ogun state on Thursday night.

The Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria (FIBAN) had on Friday slammed Kwam 1 over the incident.

Desmond Nwachukwu, its president, had also called on Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo, to strip the singer of his title as the Mayegun of Yoruba land.

But in a statement to TheCable Lifestyle on Saturday, Kunle Rasheed, Ayinde’s media aide, said the event painted by Sorunke and FIBAN is far from the truth.

Rasheed said the allegations were indicative of Sorunke and FIBAN’s desperation to “malign” the singer.

The media aide also wondered why the said violent scene was not spotted by fans who followed the event through social media.

“It is unfortunate that Mr. Sorunke and FIBAN are seriously looking for ways to malign King Wasiu Olasunkanmi Marshal who did not in anyway deserve that from them,” he said.

“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”.

Rasheed, in a seemingly contradictory stance, also said even if the said violence took place, it was not orchestrated by the singer.

“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 rescued him and took him to his stage away from the scene of the incident,” he added.

“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, 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).”
