Basirat Damilola Marshall, daughter of Fuji music icon, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshall, also known as KWAM1, has been appointed by the Governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, as his Senior Special Assistant on Tourism.

This appointment was confirmed through a viral video where KWAM1 expressed gratitude to the governor for appointing his daughter into his cabinet. The announcement was further supported by congratulatory messages seen on Damilola’s Instagram page, @damimarshall_, on Thursday.

In the viral video, KWAM1, during his performance at the coronation and birthday reception of Oba Sikirullah Apena on Thursday, publicly thanked Sanwo-Olu for the appointment, mentioning that it was Damilola who urged him to do so.


Congratulatory messages poured in, with one Nigerian, Olanrewaju-Smart Wasiu, expressing his felicitations, “Congratulations Barr. @damimarshall_ on your appointment as the Senior Special Assistant to the Lagos State Governor on Tourism. This is a deserving recognition for your hard work and contributions to our party,” to which Damilola responded with gratitude, saying, “Thank you, sir.”
