Celebrities like Saheed Osupa, Dele Odule and Sefiu Alao have joined King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall (KWAM 1) to appease a popular broadcaster, Wole Sorunke (MC Murphy) who was allegedly assaulted by Ayinde last week.
We reported earlier that the Ogun broadcaster had accused Wasiu Ayinde and his ‘boys’ of beating him up at the 60th birthday party of the Olu of Itori, Oba Fatai Akamo.
It was said that Ayinde and Sorunke met at the event as musician and compère respectively.
Sorunke alleged that the Fuji musician pounced on him with the aids of some of his boys, whom he identified as KC and Gaji, where he sat.
This, he explained, was after Ayinde had ignored him and a client he took to his stage.
The incident generated mixed-reactions from people as the Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria (FIBAN) ordered its members to stop playing Ayinde songs on their radio and television programmes.
But on Thursday, the issue was said to have been resolved at a meeting held at the palace of Olu Itori in Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ogun State.
At the meeting, which we learnt lasted for about three hours, Ayinde was said to have taken responsibility for his actions.
The National Chairman of FIBAN, Desmond Nwachukwu, said the ace Fuji musician, “humbled himself; stated his side of the story and took responsibility for the actions of his boys” at the meeting.
Nwachukwu quoted Wasiu as apologizing to MC Murphy and FIBAN, saying,
“By his assurance that nothing of such will happen around him ever again, a cordial relationship between us seem to have been birthed.”
It was gathered that the meeting was facilitated by Mayor Akinpelu, Dele Odule, Hon Biodun Akinlade and some top government functionaries.
