The Aseyin of Iseyin, Oba Sefiu Olawale Oyebola Ajirotutu Adeyeri 111, has intervened in the lingering misunderstanding between King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall (KWAM 1) and his erstwhile lead drummer, Ayankunle Ayanlowo, calling on them both to sheath their swords and allow for amicable reconciliation.

The monarch said this on Monday at his Iseyin palace when Ayankunle paid him a visit upon his invitation over the issue.

Ayankunle accused the Fuji musician of poor welfare package for his band members which KWAM1 denied.

Addressing journalists after the meeting, Aseyin hinted that because Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde and Ayankunle Ayanlowo have strong connections with Iseyin,he had no choice than to wade into the crisis and seek peaceful settlement.

“I have heard what Kunle said about his experience at his work and also listened to the video made by his former boss, Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde, all I will say is that both of them should allow peace to reign, I told Kunle to stop posting videos, abusing his former boss and has started efforts to reach out to K1 to speak with him and ask for peaceful reconciliation.

“I have read and listened to many angles to the issue from individuals taking sides, but as a monarch, I will want peace and not for this to continue,” Aseyin said.

Meanwhile, the former lead drummer, Ayankunle Ayanlowo told journalists he had been asked to avoid confrontational videos or interviews anymore, which he would abide with, henceforth.

He added that he would rather start to appreciate and pray for those who rallied round him globally when the issue broke out, because they were his backbone.

“They said I should not attack anyone anymore through social media or live interviews and I have agreed with the monarch, I just want to start by appreciating all those that stood with me during my travail till now, those that heard my voice and have supported me morally, spiritually and financially.

“I pray that the Lord Almighty will not abandon them all, their children will never suffer in their effort to seek for survival,” Ayanlowo
