Ayinde Wasiu, Nigerian Fuji star better known as K1 De Ultimate or Kwam 1, has denied reports of an extramarital affair with Olori Ajoke, alaafin of Oyo’s youngest wife.
There were widespread rumours that Ajoke was asked to leave the alaafin’s palace because she had an adulterous affair with Wasiu.
But in a statement issued through Kunle Rasheed, his media aide, on Thursday, Kwam 1 attributed the rumours to the work of individuals disgruntled over the title conferred on him by the alaafin.
The veteran musician, who was recently named the Mayegun of Yoruba Land by the monarch, also threatened a lawsuit against individuals defaming him across social media platforms.
“The attention of Fuji Maestro and Mayegun of Yorubaland, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, K1 De Ultimate, has been drawn to the rumour making the rounds in the past 48 hours,” the statement read.
“On social media, it has been alleged that the music icon was having an affair with Olori Ajoke, one of the wives of Alayeluwa, the Alaafin of Oyo, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi 111.
“Ordinarily, one would have waved off this allegation as one coming from the warped mind of one possibly numbed by high COVID-19 fever.
“Let me state that these… are lies 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.
“The Alaafin’s crime is the conferment of the honour, hence the grim plot to drag him down also. Moreover, the highly respected Monarch and his Olori have both debunked the story as unfounded.
“For the record, as the Mayegun of Yorubaland, K1 is aware of the customs and traditions of the Yoruba and as such, can not put the culture and tradition of the Yorubaland to disrepute.
“Let me remind rumour mongers that Nigeria has adequate laws to bring anyone who has embarked on character assassination to book. We will legally seek redress for this allegation.”
