Popular Fuji Musician, Wasiu Ayinde Accused Of Beating Up Broadcaster In Ogun
King Wasiu Ayinde
King Wasiu Ayinde, the ace Fuji musician, has been accused of assaulting a popular broadcaster, Wole Sorunke, fondly addressed as MC Murphy in Ogun State.
According to DAILY POST, it was learned that the duo of Ayinde and MC Murphy met on Thursday at the 60th birthday party of the Olu of Itori, Oba Abdulfatai Akamo.
They were both invited separately to perform at the event as musicians and presenters respectively.
But, MC Murphy accused the Fuji maestro of beating him blue and black at the occasion.
Speaking on Friday, the compere told newsmen that he was attacked after he had taken someone to the stage to be eulogised by Ayinde.
Sorunke said Ayinde, popularly known as KWAM 1, shockingly ignored him and his client as they left the stage.
According to him, the singer allegedly pounced on him with the aids of some of his boys, who were identified as KC and Gaji, where he was sitting.
MC Murphy, while showing journalists his swollen cheeks and lips, maintained that Ayinde had later apologised to him; saying, however, that he did not want the incident to be swept under the carpet.
Reacting to the incident, broadcasters under the auspices of Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria, on Friday, lambasted Ayinde over the alleged assault on one of them.
FIBAN President, Desmond Nwachukwu, expressed disappointment in the Fuji star, saying the act was unbecoming of someone holding the title of ‘Mayegun of Yorubaland’.
The FIBAN President appealed to the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, to strip Ayinde of the title he bestowed on him.
Meanwhile, Ayinde’s media manager, Kunle Rasheed, has denied the allegations.
Rasheed said his boss had no involvement in any violence that occurred at the event.
In a terse response, Rasheed, said nothing of such happened at the party.
He added that anything that happened to the compere at the party had nothing to do with Ayinde.
