Controversy as Dele Momodu tackles KWAM I for ‘disrespecting’ Oluwo

A criticism of King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall, popularly known as KWAM I, by Dele Momodu, celebrity journalist, has triggered reactions on social media.

Momodu had accused the Fuji musician of disrespecting the Oluwo of Iwo Land, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale.

Momodu had shared a video of where KWAM 1 was greeting the Oluwo.

In the video, the musician had asked the monarch to explain why he was not called to a ceremony in honour of Momodu.

KWAM 1 had greeted another king, who was in the same vehicle with Oluwo but turned towards the Iwo monarch, whom he challenged.

In his social media post, Momodu wrote, “A friend in Abuja has just sent this video to me and I’m absolutely horrified, to say the least, at the total and OPEN disrespect of The Oluwo of Iwoland OBA ABDULRASHEED ADEWALE AKANBI by KING WASIU AYINDE, a great musician I endlessly adore and hold in highest esteem.

“ALHAJI, I personally invited you and pleaded with you to perform at the ceremony on October 2, 2021, for an agreed fee, but you neither said Yes nor No but said you’re likely to travel. Again, I hosted your manager, Mr Kunle Rasheed to breakfast and asked him to speak to you and confirm modalities for your performance.. Egbon, what happened in this video is ver unfortunate and deserves OPEN condemnation.”

Some social media users had asked Momodu why he did not allow the king to speak for himself.
