When the news broke that popular musician, Oritse Femi was assaulted by bouncers on Friday night at Lagos nightclub, Quilox, it left us all wondering what really happened.
Now, his management ‘MSN Gang’ has released an official statement regarding the unfortunate incident. The statement reads:
On Friday 11th November 2016, at exactly 2am at Quilox Night Club. Oritse Femi was attacked by a bouncer just because he was trying to stand for an older colleague and a friend.
According to the statement from his Management, the Double wahala singer was at Quilox on Friday trying to ease off stress with his friends at the VIP corner of the club when he noticed a senior colleague and a brother, Sound Sultan and Rock Steady were been bounced from entering the VIP section of the club.
Oritse Femi who was unhappy with the behavior of the bouncers stood up to ask the why the bouncer was putting up such attitude to an A-list artiste and a brother, and the bouncer replied that an order was placed down by Quilox CEO Shina Peller that no A-list artiste should be allowed into the VIP section, claiming that they were not his costumers and they have no value at his club (presumably because of his rift with Davido).
The bouncer went further to tell Oritse Femi to keep to his section or go join his colleague at the regular section, according to his management, Oritse Femi accepted the offer to join his colleagues at the regular section but was pushed back by the bouncer, before he could say jack the other bouncer was already rough-handling him.
Oritse Femi who was holding a glass of wine had to defend himself by slapping the bouncer with the wine glass which gave the bouncer a scar on the face.
Without waiting for any explanation, the other club bouncers attacked Oriste Femi and in the process, N 8.5million worth of jewelry was stolen from Oritse Femi. The scuffle led to a protest from the crowd against the bouncers but by then the artiste was already injured. Even with the injury he was held down by the bouncers and club management claiming they were waiting for the arrival of Police.
