KWAM 1, a veteran Nigerian Fuji artist, ruled out the opportunity to run for political office on Thursday, December 17th.
KWAM 1, whose real name was Wasiu Ayinde, made the statement at an event entitled “FUJI-Opera” which was held at the Alliance Francaise, Mike Adenuga Center, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Wasiu, who is the first Mayegun in Yoruba country, said his decision to stay away from political office was based on his hatred of “promise and failure” attitudes.
He stated that he does not want to make fierce promises to get votes just to fail the electorate due to unforeseen factors.
A few months ago reports had claimed the Alaafin from Oyo was slipping the Mayegun title on KWAM 1.
The reports came after the Freelance and Independent Broadcasters Association filed a petition to this effect.
Wasiu Ayinde, KWAM 1, reportedly attacked a Wole Sorunke broadcaster in Ogun state, which resulted in his being stripped of his title.
MC Murphy was allegedly beaten by Wasiu Ayinde and his boys on Thursday evening for the 60th birthday of Olu by Itori in the Ewekoro area of Ogun State, Oba Abdulfatai Akorede Akamo.
