In a poignant plea, Kunle Ayanlowo disclosed the enduring repercussions of the incident, stated that he still suffers from the ulcer it triggered.

He urged Nigerians to hold the Fuji superstar accountable should anything untoward befall him. Expressing years of frustration, Ayanlowo lamented his 32-year tenure with K1, during which he claimed to have gained nothing substantial for himself or his family.

According to him, people just see Kwam 1’s positive side and don’t know who he truly is behind the showbiz scenes.

On Tuesday, a blog claimed there was a crisis in Ayinde’s home. It alleged that Emmanuella discovered the singer was having an affair with their chef.

The blogger also claimed that Kwam 1 was having a relationship with Ibile and another woman who is a sister to Mariam Anako, one of the wives of Adeyeye Ogunwusi, the Ooni of Ifè.

But in a statement by Kunle Rasheed, Ayinde’s spokesperson, the singer refuted the claims, adding that “they are baseless and capable of creating chaos”.
