Many Nigerian youth of the Yoruba extraction are angered by the silence of King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal’s (KWAM1) silence over the protest against police brutality that recently engulfed the nation – #EndSars!
They premised their anger on the fact that KWAM1 is the Mayegun (Peacemaker of Yorubaland) who decided o be silent in the face of a major crisis in the nation.
A Nigerian gospel-juju artist, Temitope Olaoye KING ATAYESE also released a single song to query the silence of KWAM1. King Atayese opined that KWAM1 was vocal against President Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) but he is silent now because the matter on ground affects his party – All Progressives Congress (APC).

Also, a viral video showed a Nigerian slamming Fuji musicians including Ajibola Alabi Pasuma and KWAM1 for staying mute and not joining the ongoing #EndSARS protests against police brutality in Nigeria.
Later, Pasuma went out to join the protest but was booed off by angry protesters who linked him to MC Oluomo, whom they alleged organised protesters to disrupt the protest.
