By age 15, Marshal’s talent had won him various musical competitions, which landed him a position in the band of Fuji music innovator Alhaji Sikiru Ayinde Barrister.
Regarded by many as the ‘king of fuji music’, Wasiu Ayinde, aka K1 de Ultimate, is a talented fuji artiste that has remained relevant for a long time.
In an interview, K1 had stated that he developed an interest in music at the age of eight, though his parents did not support his choice of career. He later became a member of the late Ayinde Barrister’s Supreme Fuji Commanders band from 1975 to 1978 after previously serving under him as instrument packer.
Till date, he has released well over 30 albums including, ‘Iba’, ‘Esi Oro’, ‘Talazo System’, ‘Ise L’Ogun Ise’, ‘Tiwa Dayo’, ‘Baby Je Kajo’, ‘Adieu Awolowo’, ‘Fuji Headline’, ‘My Dear Mother’, ‘Legacy’, ‘Fuji Fusion’, ‘New Era’, ‘Tribute To My Mentor’ and ‘Fuji Time’.
Over the years, K1 has also successfully collaborated with hip hop artistes such as Olamide (State of the Nation) and 9ice (Health is Wealth). His latest Extended Play album titled, ‘Fuji the Sound’, was also a hit with his fans, with its lead single, ‘Ade Ori Okin’ becoming an anthem of sorts.
The singer courted some controversy when he reportedly said that his former boss and mentor, Barrister, was not the creator of fuji music. However, in a later interview with Saturday Beats, K1 noted that ‘God used Barrister to transform fuji music’.
K1 has evidently been blessed with immense fame and fortune. His mansion in his hometown of Ijebu Ode (Ogun State) is a sight to behold and he is also said to own a ranch in the same town. His garage also boasts of choice automobiles such as Rolls Royce.
A card carrying member of the All Progressives Congress, K1 is usually the musician of choice at some of the party’s big events.
K1 De Ultimate began his global tour between North America and Europe in 1986 and performed at Hammersmith Town Hall in 1987. That was followed by New York city, United States with full Talazo Band on Sep. 28 1990, London Yuppie 1 & 2 Nights 1991/92, European Tour 1995, Berlin 1997, North America (USA & Canada ’98), Canada 2000, and USA Tour 2003. He has continued non stop touring annually since. In 1995 he delivered the first Fuji performance ever at WOMAD Festival. He is also the only Fuji musician to perform at Troxy, WOMEX and SOB’s.
