Popular Fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, aka Kwam 1 has denied having a romantic affair with Olori Badirat Ajoke, the youngest wife of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III.
Reacting to speculations linking him to the wife of the revered monarch, the singer who was a few months ago installed by the Alaafin as the Mayegun of Yoruba land, threatened to take legal action against the progenitor of the rumour.
In a statement released on Thursday by his media aide, Kunle Rasheed, the musician described the allegation as false and concocted.
He said: “Let me categorically state that the allegation is false concocted from the pit of hell by those whose aim is to drag to the mud, the name of K1 De Ultimate and ultimately that of the most revered kingdom in Yoruba land.
“These agents of Lucifer have continued in their warped delusions to see K1 go to the ground just for being conferred with the title of Mayegun of Yoruba land.”
“Let me remind the rumour mongers that Nigeria has adequate laws to bring anyone who has embarked on character assassination of the innocent to book. The fans and the general public should rest assured that we will legally seek redress for this allegation.”
The statement added that Kwam 1 was a strong adherent of Yoruba culture, hence won’t bring the traditional institution into disrepute.
