Olori Omo Oba K1 hits 67 and still waxing stronger

26 views

Alhaji Wasiu Omo Gbolahan Olasunkami Adewale Ayinde is a man of destiny, a focused Nigerian who is passionate about what he wants.

Or, what do you call a man, who rose from the streets of Isale Eko chasing his dreams to be a musician highly inspired by Islamic beliefs before trying out as an actor and then going back fully to Fuji, a genre of music that has blessed him and vice-versa.

 

Over the years, the princely singer from the Fidipote family in Ijebu Ode has remained focused with his eyes firm on the crystal balls.

 

Despite his royal status, the Ijebu people, humanity, building bridges and indeed the entertainment industry have been the better for it as he remains one of the biggest act from Africa as at today.

 

KWAM 1 or K1- de Ultimate as many love to call him, loves his root – the Yoruba people – and undoubtedly, he loves his Ijebu root more and that is why he has moved back home since about a decade.

 

Since moving back to Ijebu, he has established businesses and continues helping the development of the land.

 

Little wonder, the Awujale of Ijebuland, the highly respected Monarch, is also aware of KWAM 1’s efforts and contribution to the growth of the revered Ijebuland and decided to reward him by bestowing upon him the important title of Olori Omo Oba  – a position formerly occupied by banking doyen Otunba Subomi Balogun until his demise.

 

Alhaji Wasiu is 67 today in good health and we pray his tenure is peaceful and brings progress.

 

Long May you live Olori Omo Oba

 

Long May you live Awujale

 

Long May Ijebu prosper
