Fuji: K1 opens up on Late Barrister, Wife

Image result for Alhaji Wasiu AyindeKing of Fuji Music, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Marshall who is popularly known as K1 has opened up on the controversy going round about late Fuji Music originator, Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister and his wife who gave birth to a new child.

It was reported about a month ago, a controversy over the origin of fuji sprang up after veteran fuji musician, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, claimed that his late boss, Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, was not the progenitor of fuji music as widely believed by many. He said the genre of music had been in existence before his late boss ventured into music.

This came as a shock to many people who felt that the iconic singer is not only betraying his late boss who put him ‘on the path of fuji’ but also distorting history.

While many fuji icons maintained that the late Barrister was the originator of the music genre, some like Kollington Ayinla who is a contemporary to the late Barrister decided to keep mum on the matter.

However, since KWAM 1 as he is fondly calledby his fans made the statement, he never commented on the issue till Saturday Beats caught up with the singer at the recently concluded Nigerian Entertainment Conference.

When asked about the origin of the genre of music, the fuji singer simply said that he would speak on the matter some other time, adding that he would remain loyal to his late boss till he dies.

“I want to let the issue on the origin of fuji rest for now because well-meaning people that know about entertainment don’t want our entertainment to be troubled so I would rest that one for now. I would address the issue another time.

“Everybody is entitled to their opinion on issues but the people that understand the matter would not give such a response. My loyalty to the late Barrister is still 100 per cent intact and I would take that to my grave when I eventually die. I really don’t want to address this issue now, please respect my opinion on that,” K1 said.

Still basking in the euphoria of the recent addition to his family, K1 while commenting on the delivery of his daughter some weeks ago said that he is very happy and further gave some tips on parenting.

“I am happy that my wife gave birth recently and I feel good. Everybody must have time for their home. The way I planned my life is simple, when I am not working I am at home with my family because I am a family man. Scolding a child does not let them listen to what you want to say. The best you can do to raise a good child is extensive talks and education, you keep talking to your children because you realise people are different. You don’t have to beat a child, smacking them would not make them listen. It is better you talk to them, sit them down and correct them. I don’t believe in smacking and no one can beat my child,” he said.

Although he began his music career at 15 and it has spanned for over forty years, the singer said that he has no intentions of hanging his boot anytime soon.

KWAM 1 said, “I am still very agile and my memory is very sharp, so I don’t see any reason to retire. I am not disturbed and this is the blessing of God. I have a large followership and there are people that study me like they do their religion, so I am here to serve people.”

Barrister’s aides attack K1 over fuji music origin, Fuji Music was 7 years older than K1

Image result for barrister and k1This is a very serious case as far as Fuji music creator is concerned. Controversy sparked by a comment recently made by fuji star, Wasiu Ayinde K1 de Ultimate, is still raging as a former aide of the late Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, Mr. Dayo Odeyemi, has challenged Wasiu on the claim he made.

At a forum organised by Goldberg, where scholars and critics spoke on the progress that juju and fuji have made, Wasiu had, among other points, noted that the word ‘fuji’ originated from Lagos Island, from sayings such as ‘faaji’, ‘fuji’ and buruji.

This ran contrary to the opinion of other participants that included Prof. Tunde Babawale, Mr. Hakeem Adenekan and a younger brother of the late Ayinde Barrister, Mr. Kayode Balogun, who all tended to credit the deceased with the origination of the word.

But while Wasiu gave Barrister credit for his (Barrister) immense contribution to the growth of fuji, he warned that history should not be manipulated.

Since he made the statement at the event held at the Lagos Airport Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos, however, many of Barrister’s acolytes have been criticising him, with some of the fans saying he was undermining Barrister, who was said to be his former boss.

In a statement by Barrister’s former Spokesperson, he noted that Wasiu’s claim was far from the truth.

He said, “After due consultation with the family, friends and fans of the fuji music creator, the late Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister, it becomes imperative for me as his spokesman and a veteran entertainment  journalist,  who has written three different books on the history of Nigerian music, to make an official statement on the outburst of Wasiu Ayinde Anifowose, alias Fuji King,  on the creation of fuji.

“Wasiu Ayinde was reported to have at a forum in Lagos chided his mentor, Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barister (MFR), insinuating that he was not the creator of  fuji music, equating  ‘faaji’ and ‘fuja’ to fuji music.

“He dismissed the popular notion and statement of the founding father of fuji music that the word fuji was derived from the Japanese Mountain of Love.

“He was also reported to have claimed that he single-handedly gave Barrister a befitting burial in response to a promise he made to him before he died.

These statements are most unfortunate as well as laughable. It is also a flagrant display of arrogance and naivety on his part. This is because he was never a part of the history of fuji creation as the music itself  was seven years old as of the time he came into music under the tutelage of Ayinde Barister in 1974.

“Perhaps, I should make it clear that Wasiu Ayinde, who is claiming to know much about fuji, joined the Barrister Organisation in 1974.  As of that time,  Barrister had released 19  solid albums including two singles and one extended play. By calculation,  if we subtract 1967 when Barister released his first fuji record titled Waya Rabi from 1974 when Wasiu joined his organisation as a packer, the gap is  seven years,  meaning that fuji music is seven years older than Wasiu Ayinde.”

Odeyemi added that between 1966 and 1980 when Wasiu released his first album after leaving the Barrister Organisation in 1978/1979, Barrister had released 38 long playing records.

He also challenged Wasiu on his claim that he promised Barrister a befitting burial and eventually gave it to him.

According to Odeyemi,  it was the Lagos State Government under the leadership of former Governor Babatunde Fashola that footed the bill of the burial, through a burial committee headed by one of Barrister’s legendary fans, Alhaji Buhari Oloto.

Efforts to reach Wasiu on Thursday did not yield fruits. He has, however, said in an interview that he would not trade words with those who were not comfortable with the statements he made at the forum, because, according to him, he had spoken the truth.
