Davido's night out ends in bloody brawl

08 November 2013, 10:36

Abuja - Music star Davido's bouncer was reportedly involved in an altercation at the weekend which left a number of people injured.

The pop singer and his entourage visited the Nu Grotto night club located at 217 Etim Inyang Crescent Victoria Island, after performing at the #Colourfulworldofmore concert at Eko Hotel and Suites.

Davido arrived with friends when the club DJ, who reportedly goes by the name JD, noticed his ATM card had fallen to the floor. JD picked it up and tried handing it back to the pop singer but his bodyguard didn't let JD get close to Davido. The club DJ is said to have insulted the bouncer who replied with physical violence.

JD then allegedly smashed a brandy glass on the bouncer's neck.

"It was shocking to watch, JD is like 4'4 and the bouncer was like 6'1," a witness told Nigerian Entertainment Today.

Davido's bouncer then grabbed bottles and flung them in the club, reportedly injuring about four club goers and the club's chief bouncer, known as Mr Sam.

One of the injured club goers (under the handle @Isnitched4Oreos) took to Twitter hours later to narrate her ordeal:

"So @iam_davido came in wit his group of smellos to fight & kill people in d bar i was at w/ my niggas earlier 2day..Chale, yu're so Useless! @iam_davido I stepped on those bottles yo deranged bouncer smashed olva d place. see, Am makn enof of these money soon just 2 sue u bastard."

She continues: "@iam_davido I hope that your bouncer dies of internal bleeding frm those cuts he got for making me go thru this much pain this night. See why i neva fvcked w/ this stupid C*** called @iam_davido, nigga is too ghetto hey!. No amount of money can change this razz-ite. Oloshi!"

Davido's manager, Kamal Ajiboye, confirmed the incident, but claimed the DJ who found the ATM card attacked Davido's bouncer.

He said: "I wasn't at the club but I heard from my people that the DJ found David's ATM Card and tried getting money in return for it, things got out of hand and he attacked the bodyguard."
