K1 – World acclaimed king of Fuji music, Wasiu Olasunkanmi Marshal had come out to shed light on his inability to embark on the already scheduled United States of America (US) tour.
The respected musician through his social media handles cleared the air that there was no ambiguity or deliberate decision not to honour the proposed tour. In the lengthy but precise statement, he wrote:
“Very recently, issue about my band going to perform in America erupted some negativity which was communicated to me by concerned friends who came across a post where my name was being dragged into dealings with many show promoters in America.
Firstly, I will like to state here that, I owe my fans across the globe a high level of respect, hence the need for this explanation that the trip to United States has NOT been canceled.
As a reputable and respected organisation, we have put in place all the necessary arrangements to make the trip a success.
Work permit, flight arrangements and other necessary things, except the RIGHT OF VISA approval for the members of the band before we can proceed.
It is noteworthy to state here that I am not in control of approving Visas; the American Embassy here in Nigeria has the ultimate right to do so.
I can understand agitation from many fans and music lovers across, but patience is required to get all this bottleneck sorted out with regards to the applicable laws that permit entertainers going to America.
I’ll still not join issues with non concerned persons or group other than those respected individuals and organizations who is dealing with us directly.
Social media is free for everyone to use, but we are not deviating from the real issues because of some distractors.
Either Mike Fashakin of Orbit LLC, who is directly involved with many as the main PROMOTER or myself on behalf of my BAND.
No form of hanky-panky is played out concerning this issue
Once again as I stated earlier, we owe our fans and patrons some degree of respect which gives reason for this explanations again and again.
Nice words speak volume of your intentions rather than being ‘bossy’ to the instruments that form your rise to stardom.
Let us refrain from the use of insultive words in the name of agitation.
we have an integrity to protect, hence we will not defraud our fans and friends all over the globe.
Unconcerned agents parading themselves as a mobile court on social media should stop making mountain out of a mole hill.
You cant change what God Almighty has already ordained.
We look for peace from your end too, regardless of your intentions towards us”
Thank you all.
