No doubt, this month of March started on a good note for Fuji legend, King Wasiu Ayinde Olasunkanmi Marshal, popularly known as K1 De Ultimate.
March 3, 2018, was his 61st birthday, and he equally seized the opportunity to officially seal his love for his last wife, Opeyemi Faithia, mother of three of his children, at a well-attended ceremony, held at his Ule Ojusagbola country home in Ijebu-Ode.
Days after, precisely March 6, 2018, the Fuji king was decorated with yet another honour as UN-SDG Ambassador, by the Civil Society Coalition on Sustainable Development, (CSCSD), Ogun State chapter, at the International Stakeholders’ Conference on SDG.
The event, which took place at the Cultural Centre, Kuto, Abeokuta, had many important dignitaries in attendance, including the governor of Ogun State, Senator Ibikunle Amosun and the wife, Olufunsho. K1’s unquantifiable contribution to humanity through music was stated by the organizers as the criteria they considered in selecting him for the unique honour.
On hand to present the award and certificate was the number one citizen of the rocky state, who extolled the many virtues of the Fuji music king as deserving of the honour.
Aside from K1, Ogun State First Lady, Olufunsho Amosun, prolific filmmaker and cinematographer, Tunde Kelani, and others, were also honoured as UN Ambassadors. The Civil Society Coalition has over 150 registered civil society and non-governmental organizations under its fold in Nigeria, and it is affiliated with the United Nations.
