Wasiu Ayinde, the Nigerian Fuji singer better known as Kwam 1, has reacted after he was accused of refusing to refund payment for a show he missed in the United States.


A promoter had called out the ‘Ade Ori Okin’ crooner for “not refunding clients” after he did not show up for his US tour.

“If you think you are big and can oppress people, then you lie. K1, pay people their money. Two of your victims are crying in my DM. You didn’t show up for their show, which is enough embarrassment,” the promoter wrote.

Reacting to the outburst via his Instagram page, Kwam 1 explained how visa issues thwarted his travel plans.


He also said visa approval for the band with which he was to perform was delayed by the US embassy in Nigeria.

“I owe my fan’s across the globe a high level of respect, hence the need for my explanation recently. That my band trip to the US has not been canceled. All that is necessary to make the trip a success was put in place,” he wrote.

“Work permit, flight arrangements, and other necessary things, except the right of visa approval for those members of the band who needs to obtain that before we proceed. Surely I’m not in control of approving that visa.


“I can understand agitation from many fans and music lovers across, but patience is required to get all this bottleneck sorted out with regards to the applicable laws that permit entertainers coming to America.

“A nice word speaks volumes of your intentions rather than being bossy to the instruments that form your rise up to stardom. Let us refrain from insulting words in the name of aggression. We have an integrity to protect.

“Agents of the 3rd hand parading themselves on social media should stop making issues out of nothing.”
