The Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Sefiu Adeyeri III, on Monday, intervened in the lingering misunderstanding between King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall, popularly called KWAM 1, and his estranged lead drummer, Ayankunle Ayanlowo.

He called on them to sheath their swords and allow amicable reconciliation.

The PUNCH Online reports that Ayankunle had accused the fuji musician of providing a poor welfare package for his band members, which KWAM 1 has since denied.

The monarch, who addressed journalists in his palace in Iseyin in the Iseyin Local Government Area of Oyo State shortly after Ayankunle paid a visit upon the monarch’s invitation over the issue, explained that Wasiu Ayinde and Ayankunle Ayanlowo have strong connections with Iseyin.

He said, “One is an in-law, while the other is a son of Ado-Awaye, a community under my local government. So, I have no choice but to wade into the crisis and seek a peaceful settlement.

“I have heard what Kunle said about his experience at his work and also listened to the video made by his former boss, Wasiu Ayinde. All I will say is that both of them should allow peace to reign.

“I told Kunle to stop posting videos and abusing his former boss, and I have started efforts to reach out to K1 to speak with him and ask for peaceful reconciliation.

“I have read and listened to many angles to the issue from individuals taking sides, but as a monarch, I will want peace and not for this to continue,.”

Also speaking, the former lead drummer confirmed that the monarch had asked him not to do any confrontational videos or interviews anymore, which he would abide by henceforth.

He said, “They said I should not attack anyone anymore through social media or live interviews, and I have agreed with the monarch. I just want to start by appreciating all those who stood with me during my work until now. Those who heard my voice and have supported me morally, spiritually, and financially.

“I pray that the Lord Almighty will not abandon them all; their children will never suffer in their efforts to seek survival.”
