Musician Yinka Ayefele’s Fresh FM To Be Demolished By Oyo State Government


Popular Gospel musician Yinka Ayefele’s popular structure, The Music House, where is radio station Fresh FM 105.9, that's one of Ibadan’s most listened to stations has been reportedly marked for demolition by the Oyo state Government.

It was gathered that the demolition notice pasted on the structure along Lagos Bye Pass, Challenge, Ibadan, on the orders of the Oyo State Government gave the owners of the building three days to vacate the building and remove the structure or risk it’s removal by the government, while the deadline expires on Wednesday, 15th of August 2018 just at the time the popular radio station is extending it’s frontiers to Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.


According to the radio station’s Director of Corporate Affairs and Promotions, David Ajiboye on Facebook late on Tuesday, the demolition notice was issued because “(1) The staff canteen in the premises was not approved. (2) The spiral staircase was not in the approved plan. (3) The mast was not in the approved plan (4) The fence was not in the approved plan and therefore the entire N800 million edifice where almost 150 people make their daily bread have (sic) to go down. You are all invited to the demolition show at the Music House tomorrow”.

Though a similar notice was issued years ago, the matter was resolved between the agents of government and the owners of the structure. Meanwhile, it is being said among Fresh FM listeners that the demolition threat might have some political undertones because it was alleged that the move might be an offshoot of a statement during one of the station’s recent live programmes where certain insinuations were made about the ownership of the new abattoir in Ibadan, though the station tried to make amends by retracting the statement.

According to report, all efforts to get the CEO, Dr. Yinka Ayefele and David Ajiboye for comments proved futile as neither of them answered calls to their phone as at the time of filing this report.
