The Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria (FIBAN) has urged Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo, to strip Kwam 1, a popular Fuji star, of his title as the Mayegun of Yoruba land, over allegedly abusing Wole Sorunke, one of it’s member.

Recalls that Kwam 1 and Sorunke were said to have been invited to perform at the 60th birthday party of Abdulfatai Akamo, the Olu of Itori, in Ewekoro local government area of Ogun state on Thursday night.

According to Sorunke, popularly known as MC Murphy, the rift started when he invited Fasina Olajide, his client, to the stage to be praised by Kwam 1, as expected of Fuji singers.

The Ogun-based broadcaster, however, claimed that the Fuji maestro snubbed his client, adding that some boys loyal to the singer would later assault him.

He also revealed that the ‘Bobo’ crooner Wasiu Ayinde, apologized to him after the incident.

However in a new development on Friday, Desmond Nwachukwu, FIBAN’s president, condemned the occurrence.

He also called on the Alaafin to withdraw the singer’s Mayegun of Yoruba land title, saying that his action was a ridicule of the honorable t title.

“We would like to tell His Majesty that we are all humans and we can make mistakes,” he said.

“This is a grave mistake he has made because, as far as we are concerned, the holder of the ‘Mayegun of Yorubaland’ title must be a man that commands respect and carries himself pretty well, understanding that the image of His Majesty and the entire Yoruba race is what he goes about with.

“We would like to tell His Majesty that it is not too late to strip him of that title. We have to understand that this is Yorubaland and this is where culture and tradition are held with a lot of candour.”

Kunle Rasheed, the singer’s media manager, however, dismissed the said incident, explaining that nothing of such happened.

“Nothing of such happened. Anything that happened to him (Murphy) has nothing to do with Alhaji (K1),” he told PUNCH.
