Wasiu Ayinde popularly called K1 has denied brutalizing MC Murphy.
News Rain Nigeria learned that prominent Fuji musician, Wasiu Ayinde has denied brutalizing broadcaster Wole Sorunke popularly known as MC Murphy.
Recall that recently, broadcasters under the aegis of Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria (FIBAN) alleged that K1 beat up MC Murphy last Thursday at the 60th birthday party of Oba Abdulfatai Akamo, the Olu of Itori in Ewekoro, Ogun.
I Didn’t Brutalise MC Murphy, Says K1
In that regard, they called on the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, to strip the ace musician of his Mayegun of Yorubaland titled.
According to them, K1 allegedly disrupted the party when “he and his boys brutalized, harassed, and humiliated the FIBAN member over what they called a minor issue.”
However, spokesperson of the K1 organization, Kunle Rasheed, in a statement on Saturday evening said MC Murphy was lying.
According to him, “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.”
Rasheed further 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.
“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).”
It will be recalled that Wasiu Ayinde, the Oluomo of Lagos by King Adeyinka Oyekan of Lagos in 1999 was installed by the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi as the first as Mayegun of Yoruba Land on Monday, January 13, 2020.
