Fuji legend, K1 De Ultimate who is a card carrying member of APC and has been campaigning for the second term bid of President Buhari, was this weekend ropped in to a mild drama on social media.
A song he did for Senate President Bukola Saraki a long time ago where he sang his praises as the ‘next president’ in Nigeria suddenly surfaced online and it instantly set confusion in the minds of his followers and fans who believe he’s a pro-Buhari man.
In the song shared by Dele Momodu and several others on different social media platforms, K1 sang, ‘no one should be surprised if SARAKI becomes President tomorrow and no one should be angry because God’s work is mysterious’.
Listen to it below…
K1 immediately responded to the development and threatened to sue whoever used his song to campaign for Senate President, Bukola Saraki’s presidential ambition.
In a statement issued by his media manager, Kunle Rasheed on Sunday, September 16, 2018.
“K1 said he is already talking with his lawyers to seek redress on the matter,” the statement reads in part. The only person he is rooting for to become the president in 2019 is no other than President Muhammadu Buhari. This he has shown by telling the world where his loyalty belongs at every occasion lately.
K1 has also on countless occasion granted interviews to several media organizations that he is for Buhari till 2023. K1 is also using this medium to sound it clear that he will never ever endorse someone who has acted as a betrayal to his party right from when he assumed the office till the time he left the party for the opposition.
I will liken that to artifice, I am highly disappointed that someone like the senate president can be involved in such a fraud because it is evidently clear that the only person I am rooting for to become the president in 2019 is no other than President Mohammadu Buhari.
The only time I had an encounter with the senate president was at the marriage ceremony of Mohammed Mustapha’s son in Ilorin in 2015. So, he has no right to circulate any song without his approval; doing so amounts to fraud. ‘I remain a strong party member and the only person I support to become the president in 2019 is Muhammadu Buhari.”
Dele Momodu however insists that, ‘ Alhaji recognises greatness in others. He doesn’t sing just for money. He sang for me several times when I had nothing. This SARAKI song was too passionate to be a joke but I appreciate the pressure on him. He’s free to support his candidate and I salute his loyalty. He did the same for me. So what’s different in Saraki’s is my dear Alhaji may be under a lot of pressure. I’ve sent message to him not to let people work him up unnecessarily; the great man is friends with everyone’.
