share on:

There was outrage last week after news broke that Comedian, Seyi Law slapped a security guard at Eko Hotel & Suites, Lagos at Kiss Daniel’s album launch.

According to the report, Seyi Law slapped the security guard named Peter Ethan across the face three times, as he was trying to maneuver his way out of the venue after the New Era album launch.

In explanation of what happened that night, Seyi Law got to Instagram and posted,

I am not writing to defend a mistake I made, but so people would know that I am also prone to faults.

However, I will oblige you with my own side of the story. The Kiss Daniel’s Album Launch show ended and I got in my car to drive out like everyone when I got to the security guy who directed me to the other gate which I did. I got to the gate and was asked to go and take the main gate, driving back, I stopped by the security guy and told him, “make una dey follow una selves talk na, you dey direct us go there, another person dey direct us back” and his response was, ” how many people don turn back”, looking away.

I replied him that even if I was the only person, I no reach to tell you and he said, abeg dey go jor. I was shocked, I said so I not fit follow you talk and he said, dey go. I looked and saw another security not far off and decided to get down from my car to talk with him, unfortunately, as I opened my car, this security guy pushed the door back at me, hitting my leg, I would not know his reason for this, but it got me angry and I slapped him thrice as I got down.

I know Eko Hotel has CCTV and if there was any around there, they can release the footage(s). I am not justifying my anger and reaction, but please pardon my behaviour. I duly apologise for the action I took. Thanks for reading.
