‘I never laid hands on MC Murphy’…K1 denies brutalising Broadcaster at party

Fuji Lord, Wasiu Olasunkanmi Marshal, popularly known as K1 de Ultimate,  has denied reports making the rounds that he  beats up broadcaster, Wole Sorunke, who is more known on Radio as MC Murphy at the 60th birthday party of Oba Abdulfatai Akamo,  the Olu of Itori in  Ewekoro,  Ogun State, last Thursday evening. Surprisingly, broadcasters under the aegis of Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria,(FIBAN), had  a press conference, on Friday, alleging  that the Fuji super star  beat up the broadcaster 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 offence. 

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

In a statement 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 anyway 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  rescued him and took him to his stage away 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 coroborrated by people present at the occasion. "For the avoidance of doubt, K1’s 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 concluded.

Squabble between K1 and MC Murphy finally resolved

Frontline media practitioner and 1998 United Nations Peace Ambassadors for World Peace, Comrade Tunde Oladunjoye, has said that the reported misunderstanding between Mayegun of Yorubaland, King Wasiu Olasunkanmi Marshal popularly known as K1, and popular broadcaster and compere, Wole Shorunke, popularly called MC Murphy, has been resolved .

Oladunjoye, a former Chairman of Ijebu East Local Government and current Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State, informed that the matter has been resolved.

“Eminent people have intervened on both sides, so the details is that the matter has been resolved, he added.

On the allegation that the Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria (FIBAN) was abused by someone close to K1, Oladunjoye said:“that cannot be attached to K1. I have been in touch with K1, MC Murphy, President of FIBAN and the Olu of Itori. It will be very wrong to credit a comment to K1 when the commentator was not speaking for K1, even the medium that interviewed the commentator neitherreferred to him, nor introduced him as a representative of K1.”

“It is normal that when disagreement like this occurs, some people will want it resolved quickly, some will want to escalate it for ulterior motives, but the most important thing is that in this particular incident, it has been resolved. K1 and Mc Murphy have come from a long way, not even the latest incident, or so-calledsympathisersor supporters on either side could put them apart,” Oladunnoye explained.

“The matter has been resolved, and it stands resolved.”, Oladunjoye concluded.
