Trouble Looms For Fuji Star, KWAM 1 As Alaafin of Oyo Set To Strip Off His ‘Mayegun’ Title
The Alaafin of Oyo has been petitioned by the Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association to strip off the title of Mayegun on Nigerian Fuji artist, Wasiu Ayinde for reportedly assaulting a broadcaster Wole Sorunke in Ogun State.
Reports reveal that MC Murphy was beaten by Wasiu Ayinde and his boys on Thursday night at the 60th birthday of the Olu of Itori in Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State, Oba Abdulfatai Akorede Akamo.
In an address to the press on Friday, FIBAN president, Desmond Nwachukwu described the Fuji musician as unfit for the Mayegun title conferred on him.
Read statement below;
“We would like to tell his Majesty that, Yes, we are all humans and we can make mistakes. This is a grave mistake he has done because as far as we are concerned the holder title of Mayegun of Yorubaland must be a man that command respect and carry himself pretty well, understanding that the image of his Majesty and the entire Yoruba race is what he goes about with
“We like to tell his Majesty that it is not too late to strip him of that title. We have to understand that this is Yorubaland and this is where culture and tradition are held with a lot of candour.
“And I say without any reservation that the conduct of Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, at the 60th birthday of the Olu Itori, is the least expected. He does merit the title by that conduct.
“It is not just a slap on broadcasters in Nigeria and across the world, it is indeed a slap on the Yorubas…,” he said.
