Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, a Fuji musician better known as Kwam 1, says his son Sultan Anifowoshe is not a fraudster.
Anifowoshe was recently arrested alongside six others in the US over an alleged $2 million cyber-crime.
Commenting on the development, the veteran musician said his son was not involved in the crime and was simply a victim of circumstance.
Kwam 1 said Anifowoshe’s release on bail is proof of his innocence.
A statement issued by Kunle Rasheed, his media and publicity director, reads: “Our attention has been drawn to the news circulating that Sultan, K1 De Ultimate’s son was arrested alongside five other people in the US over Two million Dollars fraud.
“There is no doubt that my son was among those that were arrested but what is however not true is claims that he is a fraud. We can confidently say that he was not in any way involved in the crime, which explains the reason why he was the only person that was released on bail.
“The bail given to Sultan indicates that he is not involved in the crime; he is only a victim of circumstance who happened to be at a wrong place at a wrong time.
“Many detractors are quick to celebrate the news because to them, they want to get to the father. But the truth will always shine as light over darkness.
“Sultan, we believe will be given a clean bill of health at the next adjournment.”
