Fuji musician, KWAM 1, completes 7-day seclusion rites



Fuji musician, KWAM 1, completes 7-day seclusion rites

Popular Nigerian Fuji musician King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, known as KWAM 1, has emerged from seclusion after completing a seven-day traditional rite.

He was seen dressed in white regalia, adorned with leopard skin, exiting his Ojushagbola family house with his wife, Emmanuella Ropo.

This period of seclusion was in honour of his new and prestigious chieftaincy title, recently bestowed upon him in his hometown of Ijebu-Ode.


The title, “Olori Omo Oba Akile Ijebu,” was graciously given to K1 by the Awujale of Ijebu Land, HRM Oba (Dr.) Sikiru Kayode Adetona, Ogbagba Agbotewole II.

Previously held by the late Balogun, the title symbolised the strength and dignity of the Ijebu people.

KWAM 1’s attainment of this prestigious title reflects his remarkable contributions to the enhancement of Ijebuland’s reputation and, by extension, the entire Yorubaland.

Prior to this latest honour, he had already earned the title of Mayegun of Yorubaland, which further solidified his status as a respected figure in the Yoruba community.

Burna Boy’s concert in South Africa cancelled over alleged theft

Burna Boy’s concert in South Africa cancelled over alleged theft

A concert scheduled for Burna Boy in South Africa was reportedly cancelled due to R10 million theft allegations.

The Afro-fusion singer was expected to perform at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on September 23.

Burna Boy, however, called off the event over organisers’ inability to meet their “contractual, financial, production, and technical obligations”.

The Nigerian singer also dismissed claims that the concert was cancelled due to low ticket sales.

However, according to a report, a R10 million fraud case was what led to the cancellation of Burna Boy’s concert in Johannesburg.

Sowetan Live reports that Sedote Nwachukwu, the CEO of Ternary Media Group, the entertainment company organising the ‘Twice as Tall’ hitmaker’s concert, is accused of stealing the amount from the show’s budget.


The South African daily newspaper added that a case of fraud was opened by Nwachukwu’s business partner Gregory Wings at the Sandton police station.

Nwachukwu, who was also relieved of his duties, however, denied the allegation in a chat with News24.

“The allegations made against me is that I did not pay these people,” he said.

“The production budget ballooned from $200 000 to $665 000, which we did not account for due to the ever-changing production equipment that was added only one week prior to the event. This obviously impeded the event.”

In a statement on Wednesday, the entertainment company announced a leadership transition.

“Due to pending legal proceedings related to an upcoming Burna Boy concert in Johannesburg, the event has been postponed,” the statement reads.

“In light of the allegations of misconduct, Ternary Media Group has relieved Mr [Sedote] Nwachukwu of his CEO responsibilities until further notice.”

Last Thursday, Pro Tickets changed the status of Burna Boy’s concert from postponed to cancelled following the allegations.
