Apart from the fact that K1 took the center stage at Pasuma’s daughters’ wedding Barakat, which was a dream come true for Pasuma which many also see as the maximum respect for their relationship contrary to the beliefs of many people especially their fans. K1 and Pasuma’s relationship continues to wax stronger. This is another evidence of their strong relationship aside from the previous video clips making rounds on social media when Pasuma was seen prostrating and hailing K1 the Ultimate. Therefore it was not a surprise when K1 stormed the wedding of Barakat in his Rolce Royce. Pasuma was seen welcoming him in a triumphant way. One can see the joy on his face as he prostrated almost fifteen times in welcoming him, he was also saying emphatically that; no matter what anybody says, he will continue to remain loyal to K1, he was seen calling K1 “Oga Nla”, “no 1” althrough. Summing up all these, one will conclude that their relationship has finally come to stay.
HOW K1 THRILLED GUESTS
At the just-concluded Pasuma’s daughter’s wedding, K1 de Ultimate while thrilling the guests, responded to the allegation of his alleged affair with Wasilat. It was also discovered that Pasuma’s daughter, Wasilat was also on a video call, either with facetime or WhatsApp with her father, somebody gave the phone to K1, who prayed for her and sang-praised her. In his statement. “Many people rumored that I had something to do with Wasilat. They said I’ve dated Wasilat. I asked; who has ever prayed to date his grandchild? I have never thought of it, as I’ve learnt never to react to some rumors. One of the reasons why I accepted to be here this night is to prove to the world that there is no fight between me and Pasuma. Today, I am the father of the bride’s father. Pasuma is my son and will forever remain my son, so it’s not possible for me to have any affair with my grandchild. I’m used to many names people are calling me. Some even call me Alagbe (beggar), but as I said I’ve learnt never to respond to any allegation or rumor again”.
