KI denies brutalising MC Murphy at birthday party of Oba Abdulfatai Akamo

By Benjamin Njoku

Fuji musician, Wasiu Olasunkanmi Marshal, popularly known as K1 de Ultimate, has denied reports that he beat up broadcaster, Wole Sorunke who’s popularly known as MC Murphy at the 60th birthday party of Oba Abdulfatai Akamo, the Olu of Itori in Ewekoro, Ogun State, last Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, broadcasters under the aegis of Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria,(FIBAN), had a press conference, on Friday, alleging that the Fuji musician beat up the MC Murphy at the party.

The FIBAN had also called on the Alaafin of Oyo, to strip the musician off his ‘Mayegun of Yorubaland’ title, for the alleged offense.

The FIBAN had claimed that K1 allegedly disrupted the party, which had some prominent Nigerians
in attendance, when “he and his boys brutalised, harassed and humiliated the FIBAN member over what they called a minor issue.”

However, in a statement issued on Saturday, the spokesperson of the K1 organisation, Kunle Rasheed said the event painted by Sorunke and FIBAN is far from the truth.

Mr Rasheed said: “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.

“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)”, he added.
