K1 disowns aide who abused FIBAN on BBC

The King of Fuji music, Wasiu Olasunkanmi Marshal, K1, on Monday distanced himself from comments made by one of his aides on a radio programme.

The aide reportedly granted an interview to the BBC Yoruba service on the face-off between the Fuji maestro and a broadcaster, Wole Sorunke, also known as MC Murphy, on Sunday, where he made disparaging statements on the Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria.

K1 said the utterances of the aide during the interview does not in any way represent his views, mindset or that of his organisation.

A statement by his Media Office on Monday said: “K1 did not in anyway authorise any such utterances.

“K1 wishes to distance himself from the verbal abuse of FIBAN.

“K1 also wishes to reiterate his respect and partnership with FIBAN and indeed all media practitioners, many of whom are his close friends.”
