The Nigerian social media space erupted on Wednesday night over allegations that a revered traditional ruler; the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III had sent his youngest wife, Badirat Ajoke out of the palace; over an extramarital affair with legendary Fuji musician, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, popularly known as KWAM 1.
Indeed, 1st News is yet to independently confirm the veracity of the allegations. However, it has remained one of the top trending topics on Twitter since Wednesday.
Olori Badirat Olaitan Ajoke Adeyemi, 29, a fashionable mother of two; is widely regarded as one of the favourites of the Alaafin. The petite queen is often seen attending social functions together with the Iku Baba Yeye; as the Yoruba monarch is fondly addressed.
On his part, KWAM 1 is unarguably one of the most influential musicians of his generation. Credited with popularizing a brand of the Fuji genre based on the work of the Fuji creator; Ayinde Barrister known as Talazo fuji that appeals to all age groups, irrespective of tribe and background; he has received many titles and several music awards for his craft.
Incidentally, the Alaafin of Oyo, one of the most respected traditional rulers in Nigeria; had recently crowned KWAM 1; whose real name is Wasiu Ishola Adewale Olasunkanmi Omogbolahan Anifowoshe with the title of Mayegun of Yoruba land; the first person to hold the title.
The musician was installed as Mayegun in a ceremony at the palace of the Alaafin of Oyo in Oyo town; in Oyo State on Monday, January 13, 2020.
Oba Adeyemi installed KWAM 1 as part of activities marking his 49th year on the throne.
Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola; and Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, among others, attended the ceremony.
Meanwhile, there is a consensus among several Twitter users that the allegations levelled against the popular musician; are not to be dismissed. Indeed, a very vocal cross-section of users of the social media platform have gone as far as alleging other instances of philandering on the part of the star act.
As a matter of fact, 1st News has put together some of the opinions on this trending subject.

Kwam 1 was rumored on the street sometime for having affairs with the daughter of a closed associate Pasuma, formerly Arabambi II
Same Kwam 1 is also accused of having an affair with one of Alafin of Oyo wives.
This should not come as a surprise. It's in him.

How do you exalt a man so high that you start making him think himself of a god?
If you guys know how women (young and old) throw themselves at Kwam 1 ehn.
