He said: “Both of them (Mustapha and Lawal) had issues on K1’s stage and K1 waded into the matter. At a point, Mustapha left the stage. Not quite long.

"MC Oluomo came on stage and exchanged greetings with K1, NURTW state chairman, Tajudeen Agbede. As at that time, the boys of Sego and Kunle Poly had started fighting on the ground.

"So, it was not safe for MC Oluomo to leave the stage until one of Kunle Poly’s boys came on stage and threatening to kill MC Oluomo with a dagger.

"Agbede slapped him three times and chased him away. K1 also joined him to chase him away from the stage. He later returned to the stage and stabbed MC Oluomo and one Abija. That was how it happened.”

According to him, if not for K1, the crisis would have been bigger than that as he repeatedly talking to both warring parties to douse the tension.

He said.“I was on the stage with them. I was there all through. K1 tried his best to resolve the crisis between the NURTW leaders over the state chairmanship tussle even before that rally. People should stop accusing K1 of not doing enough to resolve their crisis."

Rasheed denied that the musician abuse Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, which some said led the supporters of the governor to start the crisis.

According to him, the track people were referring to has nothing to do with Ambode.

“If you check the new album he made for Babajide Sanwo-Owu, that track is there. He has even sung the track long before the crisis started. The track is all about APC and the party’s governorship candidate", he said.

On why K1 continue singing while Ambode was making his speech, Rasheed described it as normal practice.

“If you are at the APC convention in Abuja, the instruction was that as soon as someone is introduced, K1 will sing.

"Same thing happened at the Skypower Grounds, K1 started singing when Governor Ambode handed the party’s flag to Sanwo-Olu and that has nothing to do with the crisis. He didn’t abuse or insult Governor Ambode as some are peddling", he said.
