Kunle Ayanlowo has lashed out at maestro Fuji singer, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, otherwise known as KWAM1.


Ayanlowo, who was the singer’s drummer in an interview accused Kwam1 of maltreating his workers.


He revealed how K1 treated him and his colleagues like slaves. He claimed that the Fuji singer always seized their passports anytime they travel and returned to Nigeria.


Ayanlowo disclosed how Kwam1 ordered him to return home when he ran into him on the road while he was on the way to the hospital for treatment of ulcer, which he has been suffering for a while. He, therefore, told Nigerians to hold Kwam1 accountable should anything happen to him.


He added that he worked with KWAM1 for 32 years and in all those years, he has achieved nothing as he lived in fear throughout his time with him. He noted that people only see his good side, but don’t know who he really is behind the scenes.


“Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde used to seize and hold on to our passports whenever we traveled and returned to Nigeria. It is my right as a Nigerian to have my passport with me.

“He has over three of my passports with him. One day, someone was taking me to the hospital for treatment, Alhaji met us on the road, he ordered me to get down from the car and go back home.

“I was having intense stomach pain. Till today, I am still nursing the ulcer. If anything bad should happen to me, I will hold him accountable.

“I was with him for 32 years and I achieved nothing. I lived in fear throughout my time with him. People only see him as a good person outside, you don’t know who he really is.

“Musicians working for Wasiu Ayinde are treated as slaves, nobody becomes successful when they work with Wasiu Ayinde.”


Late last year, two of his band members, the lead guitarist and the keyboardist, absconded while they were on a musical tour in the United Kingdom.


The band boys disappeared without a trace.
