There has been at least 3 times that King of Fuji music, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde Anifowoshe Marshal better known as K1, has done things that attracted public criticism to him as an artiste. And, one of the times obviously includes the scenario in a new viral video of K1 talking to a Royal Father, HRM, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, the Olu of Iwo, publicly, in a manner that many have considered disrespectful to the Royal Stool that the King occupies.

In the video in question, K1 is seen challenging Olu of Iwo for not inviting him to the celebration of the chieftaincy title he honoured media personality, Dele Momodu with as Aare Tayese of Iwo land on October 2nd, 2021. And, because the short conversation between K1 and Olu of Iwo was in Yoruba, the purported tone of disrespect from K1 to the Royal Father in the video, was easy to note. In K1's exact words, he said: "Iwo o le pe awa nigbati o fe se oye Dele abi?" Meaning: "So, you could not invite us when you wanted to honour Dele with a chieftaincy title, right?" K1 fired at the King.

Culturally, the Yorubas have a far more dignifying way of talking to someone occupying a top traditional position like a King as different from an ordinary person. Hence, the tone of K1 to Olu of Iwo has, therefore, been attracting lots of criticism from different quarters amongst the Yorubas to him, as they feel that it lacked all the expected forms of respect.

Meanwhile, before the current scenario, there had been a different situation in recent past when K1 did something that also attracted public criticism towards him. And, it was at the 60th birthday party of a Monarch, HRM, Oba Fatai Akorede Akamo, the Olu of Itori. At the birthday party which was held in Itori, Ogun State, K1 and 2 of his aides were reported to have beaten up a media personality, Moruf Akanbi Sorounke popularly known as MC Murphy.

Acording to the story, a little misunderstanding arose between K1 and MC Murphy when the broadcaster went to K1's stage during the birthday party, and K1 reportedly instructed his aides to beat up MC Murphy, before he too joined them in the beating. And, the matter attracted public criticism to K1 before it later got resolved between him and MC Murphy.

It would be recalled that, K1 also attracted public criticism to himself, sometime ago when he smacked a photographer on the head for going back and forth in front of his stage during an event. The Fuji legend felt the photographer was disturbing his stage by going back and forth to take pictures. But, when the video of the incident later went viral at that time, coupled with the public criticism that followed it, K1 had to apologise to the photographer for his act.

And, that sums up the 3 times K1 has attracted criticism to himself by the things he does.
