The king of Fuji music and the Olori Omooba, Akile Ijebu, Wasiu Ayinde Olasunkanmi Marshal has promised to bring succor to Nigerians by making sure he crashed the market price of the popular bird known as guinea fowl.
He made this known on Saturday night at Ijebu Itele, also in Ogun State where he had gone to felicitate with the monarch of that town who was celebrating his 80th birthday.
K1, as he is popularly known believes that the only way he could add to the success of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration is to contribute his own quota by bringing succor and relieve to the people. Though, he said he has so many ways of contributing positively to better the lot of his people, but he hopes to start by making guinea fowl become a staple food in the country.
His target is believed to be before the end of this administration which he has been working hard towards achieving the feat.
According to the gifted musician who is also the Mayegun of Yorubaland, “No matter what the price of the bird is now, I will crash it to the minimal level that will be affordable to all and sundry. This is a promise from me to you” he stated.
For those who do not know, K1 has invested heavily in Guinea Fowl farming among others and he has his farms on several hectares of land in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, Ibadan, in Oyo State, Abeokuta and his Ijebuland in Ogun state.
Already, the demand for guinea fowl meat has increased in the country today because it is considered a high-quality protein source. The bird is highly valued for its meat and egg and K1 believes it is what he is determined to do and he must do it.
