Popular Fuji musician, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal aka KWAM1 is trending on the social media lately.
Said to be married to an Ibadan-based fashion designer, Aramide Adenle, KWAM1 who got married legally to Titilope aka Alafaithia,has debunked the story making the rounds.
The story, which was published by FIRST WEEKLY magazine hinted that KWAM1 threw a party which cost overN15m for his new wife’s mother’s burial in Ibadan.
It was also alleged that the couple has a daughter together.
But the musician denied all the allegations.
He made this known in a statement released to NAN on Monday, September 9, 2019.
The statement signed by his media officer, Kunle Rasheed, reads:
“Our attention has been drawn to a story making the rounds that King of Fuji music, K1 De Ultimate had married a new wife.
The peddlers of this story also stated that he already has a daughter with the same woman and recently spent 15 million naira to host a party for her.
For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state that marriage is a holy rite ordained by God and a man of K1’s calibre and accomplishments cannot be one to enter into such union without the knowledge of his family and friends which indeed include top media practitioners.
We find it repulsive that K1’s name could be dragged into one fictional marriage story without any attempt to confirm the veracity or otherwise of such story.
We wish to inform friends, family, fans and the general public that indeed K1 performed at the mentioned ceremony because he was contracted to play at the Ibadan party.
How that translated into his marriage ceremony is one that we are yet to understand.
All K1 did at the event was to deliver a 100 percent A-class performance the K1 brand is known for and nothing more.
Indeed, the universal standard practice in journalism demands proper and adequate confirmation of stories before rushing to press.
Kunle rasheed for K1’s band.
