The Otunba of Iwoland, Chief Sikiru Wahab Atanda, in a circulated video, has condemned the popular Fuji maestro, Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, popularly called Kwam 1 or K1, for his open disrespect of the Oluwo of Iwoland, HRM. Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, in Offa, Kwara State, over the weekend.
Chief Atanda, who described K1 as an arrogant man, with no manner and respect for elders and traditional institutions, also said, Kwam 1’s ‘Mayegun’ title, should be stripped off him.
The Otunba of Iwoland, Chief Atanda, said, the manner in which the popularly musician intruded the private discussion of three prominent traditional rulers of Yorubaland, showed lack of manners; and this prompted him, (Chief Atanda), to call for the withdrawal of Kwam 1’s ‘Mayegun’ title, a Yoruba traditional honour. He called on all Yoruba sons and daughters, to openly demand removal of any chief, who disrespect any Yoruba traditional leader, going forward.
“I condemned the action of Wasiu Ayinde in strong term. He is a musician without manner, and a naturally arrogant human. His open disrespect to Oluwo and Elegushi is condemnable and an affront on traditional institution”
“His likes do not worth to be honoured with traditional title. He intruded a private discussion going on among three kings in a static vehicle, and started calling them by their names. Is that the attribute of a Mayegun or who?”
Otunba Atanda, advised K1 to revisit school where moral and public conducts are taught.
“I equally enjoin the Wasiu Ayinde to revisit moral school, where public conducts are learnt for nurturing.”
He urged Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, alias Kwam 1, to retrace his steps, tender a public apology to the Oluwo of Iwoland, and to stir clear from Oluwo’s affairs from henceforth; adding that, “Oluwo is one of the few 8 to 10 natural paramount ruler in Yorubaland, who have never been upgraded from Baale to Oba, but has, and wears his crown from inception.”
“I want to sound this warning of note, Wasiu Ayinde should be mindful of how he relates with Oluwo henceforth. Oluwo is one of the few 8 to 10 natural paramount ruler in Yorubaland, who have never been upgraded from Baale to Oba, but has and wears his crown from inception. He deserves respect from every reasonable, cultured and morally upright sons and daughters of Yoruba land and beyond. Irrespective of who you be, Oluwo must be regarded”
“On behalf of the good people of Iwoland and in respect of Yoruba culture and tradition, I request for an open apology and a promise note that such will never happen again or else, he should avoid Oluwo”
