Despite the controversy generated by Wasiu Alabi Pasuma’s decision to dump the title of Arabambi for Oganla 1 of Fuji music, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal is yet to speak on the issue despite Pasuma’s several interviews on social media network and in newspapers and magazines.
Though reports have it that there is a silent but raging feud going on for months between the top fuji lords before Pasuma finally dumped the title at the 70th birthday of Iya Rainbow, which took place in Lagos weeks back.
According to Pasuma at the birthday party where he performed: “I prefer to be addressed as Oganla 1 of Fuji music now to my former title, Arabambi II.”
Some believe Pasuma disowned the title because K1 one was not comfortable with Alabi Pasuma visiting Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, without his consent. King Wasiu was said to have termed it a serious betrayal, which led to K1 scolding him at the Burdillion, Ikoyi, Lagos State home of the former Governor of Lagos State.
Others feel the rancor has to do with the ongoing rumour that King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal allegedly impregnated Pasuma’s daughter, which the Orobokibo creator has since dispelled not to be the true cause of their fight.
However, K1 was reportedly said to have told those close to him that he does not have any position about Pasuma changing his title.
