Fuji musician Kwam1 has reacted after being called out for refusing to refund payment for a show he did not attend in the US.
Kemi Filani News earlier reported that Instagram blogger Gislovers revealed Kwam1 embarrassed the people who had invited him to play at their show by not showing up for the event.
The blogger alleged that Kwam1 has also refused to refund the payment and used part of the money to acquire a building for his new wife Emmanuella Rope and their wedding preparation.
The blogger also shared screenshots of an alleged conversation with an entertainer, Lanre Olakanlu, who had also called out Kwam over a breach of contract.
Lanre Olakanlu claimed he and his team made 100% payment to Kwam1 and his team for a show that never happened.
Addressing the claims in a statement shared on his Instagram page, Kwam explained the reasons for his delayed tour in the US.
Kwam1 revealed that all the necessary things required to make the trip were put in place, including a work permit and flight arrangement except the Visa approval for some of his band members.
Kwam1 said he’s not in control of approving Visa and understands many of his fans; hence urged that people should be patient with him.
The statement reads: Very recently, issues about my band going to perform in America erupted some negativity which was communicated to me by concern friends who come across a post where my name was been dragged into dealings with many sub show promoters in America.
Firstly i will like to state here that, I owe my fan’s across the globe a high level of respect, hence the needs for my explanation recently. That my band trip to United States has NOT been canceled.
All that is necessary to make the trip a success was put in place. Work permit, flight arrangements and other necessary things, except the RIGHT OF VISA approval for those members of the band who needs to obtain that before we proceed.
Surely am not in control of approving that Visa but the American embassy here in Nigeria. I can understand agitation from many fan’s and music lovers across, but patience is required to get all this bottleneck sorted out with regards to the applicable laws that permit entertainers coming to America.
Il still not join issues with non concern persons or groups other than those respected individuals and organizations who is dealing with us directly.
Social media is free for everyone’s usage, but we are not deviating from the real issues because of some distractors.
Either Mr 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 fan’s and patrons some degree of respect which gives reason for this explanations again and again.
A nice words speaks volume of your intentions rather than been bossy to the instruments that form your rise up to stardom.
Let us refrain from usage of insultive words in the name of aggression. we have an integrity to protect, hence we will not defraud our fans and friends all over the globe.
Agent of the 3rd hand parading themselves on social media should stop making issues out of nothing. 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. K1 De Ultimate (Adeori-Okin)
