I was with him for 32 years but achieved nothing, he treated us as slaves – KWAM 1’s drummer

Kunle Ayanlowo, the official talking drummer for King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, otherwise known as KWAM1, has claimed that he is an exploitative boss.

He revealed that he quit from the Fuji star’s music band after working for 32 years, because he was fed with the alleged maltreatment of his workers.

Speaking in an interview, Ayanlowo narrated how KWAM 1 allegedly treated him and his colleagues like slaves. He claimed that the Fuji singer always seized their passports anytime they travel out of the country.

He added that he worked with KWAM1 for 32 years and in all those years, he has achieved nothing as he lived in fear throughout his time with him. He noted that people only see his good side, but don’t know who he really is behind the scenes.

In his words; “Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde used to seize and hold on to our passports whenever we traveled and returned to Nigeria. It is my right as a Nigerian to have my passport with me.

“He has over three of my passports with him. One day, someone was taking me to the hospital for treatment, Alhaji met us on the road, he ordered me to get down from the car and go back home.

“I was having intense stomach pain. Till today, I am still nursing the ulcer. If anything bad should happen to me, I will hold him accountable. I was with him for 32 years and I achieved nothing. I lived in fear throughout my time with him. People only see him as a good person outside, you don’t know who he really is.

“Musicians working for Wasiu Ayinde are treated as slaves, nobody becomes successful when they work with Wasiu Ayinde.”
