The socialite who was rumoured sometime ago to be having an amorous affair with one of the wives of top monarch, Alaafin of Oyo allegedly had a secret wedding with Emmanuella Ropo, the pretty owner of  Party Dreams, a children’s gift shop in Lagos.

The Elegushi and the musician are close, informing the decision to make his palace their first outing after their alleged secret wedding.


According to report as monitored on popular news website Elitesng, K1 and Emmanuella had been an item for some time. The public first noticed their closeness at the burial ceremony of Emmanuella’s dad in Abeokuta. K1 didn’t just performed, he took his friends to the event where they were specially entertained.

‘someone stepped on me’ K1 Gave Reasons For Storming Out Of Olubadan’s Wife’s Birthday Party

The king of fuji music and the Mayegun of Yorubaland, Wasiu Ayinde showed his other side recently at the 70th birthday celebration of the most senior wife of the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Olatunji.

The Jogor Hall of Grace was filled to the brim with dignitaries, monarchs and celebrities who came from far and wide to celebrate with the monarch and as expected, the Mayegun was at his best, dishing out the best from his music collections.

The party was going smoothly till the Master of Ceremony pleaded with K1 to give the DJ a short time to perform.

The fuji musician was obviously angry as he stepped down from the stage but refused to come back to the stage to continue his performance.

All the pleas and gesture to get him back on stage proved futile. It took the timely intervention of Ibadan high chief, Akinade Fijabi to save the situation.

The Mayegun protested ‘Fijabi, won te mi mole ni now! Mi korin mo!'(I was stepped on, I’m no longer singing).

The high chief, an old buddy of the musician pleaded with him and got him back on the stage.

The Olubadan, Oba Adetunji was a music promoter and influenced Wasiu Ayinde’s musical career as a budding artiste.

Why Alaafin’s Silence Troubles Wasiu Ayinde

The last may not have been heard in the sexual allegation scandal between top musician, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde and one of the wives of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, Olori Badirat Ajoke with claims that the musician is worried with the silence of the Alaafin over the matter.

A source close to the popular artiste who holds the title of the Mayegun of Yorubaland explained that the silence of the Alaafin in the whole issue means a lot and it’s a lot of concern for Wasiu Ayinde who has enormous respect for the monarch.

It was said that the musician, popularly called K1 reached out to the traditional ruler at the wake of the scandal and he was said to have been assured by the monarch not to worry as he would make a statement that would clear him off the scandal.

The Mayegun waited for three days without any statement being released by the palace and was alarmed by the negative impact the scandal was leaving on his reputation when he decided to clear his name, and even threatened a redress.

The singer was also interviewed by popular journalist, Dele Momodu where he vehemently denied the allegation which he claimed was the handwork of people who opposed his selection for the Mayegun title and wanted to create enmity between him and the respected monarch.

The queen in the centre of the allegation on her part had also come out to debunk the allegation while calling on all the gods in Yorubaland to punish her if she had anything to do with the musician.

The monarch was silent throughout the period the scandal became news.

An individual close to the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi hinted that the powerful monarch’s silence could only mean the Alaafin is still investigating the matter.

In his words, he said ‘you know Baba is very blunt. He doesn’t joke with family and traditional matters like this, but he is someone that holds on to facts. His silence means he is still investigating the matter and be sure Baba would come out as soon as he gets the fact’.

Dublin based blogger, Esther Aboderin was the first to write the story where she claimed the Alaafin of Oyo palace says the youngest wife of the Yoruba monarch has been sent packing, as she was alleged to be having sexual affairs with Fuji music legend, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall.

Olori Badirat Adejoke, the 9th wife of Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi is the youngest of his wives. She is currently a youth corps member after graduating from the prestigious University of Ibadan, Ibadan Oyo state.

K1 Debunks Alleged Affair With Alaafin’s Wife, Seeks Legal Redress

The Mayegun of Yorubaland, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde has responded to the allegation of having an affair with one of the wives of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi
The statement reads…
The attention of Fuji Maestro and Mayegun of Yorubaland, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, K1 De Ultimate, has been drawn to the rumour making the rounds in the past 48 hours, on social media platforms, where it has been alleged that the music icon was having an affair with Olori Ajoke, one of the wives of Alayeluwa, the Alaafin of Oyo, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi III.
But as known in these parts, a lie repeatedly told, has a way of transmuting to truth.
Let me categorically state that the rumour is lies concocted from the pit of hell by those whose aim is to drag to the mud, the name of K1 De Ultimate and ultimately that of the most revered kingdom in Yoruba land.
These agents of Lucifer have continued in their warped delusions to see K1 go to the ground just for being conferred with the title of Mayegun of Yoruba land. The Alaafin’s crime is the conferment of the honour, hence the grim plot to drag him down also. Moreover, the higly respected Monarch and his Olori have both debunked the story as baseless and unfounded.

For the records, as the Mayegun of Yorubaland, K1 is aware of the customs and traditions of the Yoruba and as such, can not put the culture and tradition of the Yorubaland to disrepute.

Let me remind the rumour mongers that Nigeria has adequate laws to bring anyone who has embarked on character assassination of the innocent to book. The fans and the general public should be rest assured that we will legally seek redress for this allegation.

The new Mayegun of Yorubaland, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde reacted to the news that he missed the posthumous birthday of his mentor.

K1 who was believed to had briefly worked with the late fuji musician as a young man learning the ropes in the industry defended himself with claims that he didn’t get an invitation from the organisers.

K1’s publicist, Kunle Rasheed in a phone conversation with this writer claimed the musician never got an invite from the organisers. In his words, the seasoned journalist said ‘honestly he didn’t get an invite. Barry is someone he respects so much, why would he ignore such event? I can tell you that he didn’t get an invite’.

The other artistes, Pasuma and Obesere are yet to make public the reasons they failed to attend the event.
