14 November 2016, 10:28

Lagos - Music star, Oritsefemi and a bouncer at Club Quilox were involved in an altercation that resulted in a fist fight.

The club has released an official statement detailing what transpired as well as photos from the incident.

In the early hours of the 12th of November 2016, an unfortunate incident occurred between music act Oritsefemi and a member of the security team at Club Quilox.

According to the statement  Oristsemi did not book for a table, but was allowed on a club table in the VIP section based on recognition, but threw caution to the wind by attempting to sit some of his guests at the table, the surprised patron who allowed the singer sit at the table strongly rejected such effrontery and invited the bouncer guarding the floor to intervene .

The bouncer politely approached Oritsefemi and told him that the patron who owned the table did not want any of Oritsefemi’s guest joining in as the patron’s guests were still being expected as he previously informed him. 

According to the statement, Oristefemi in a fit of unprovoked rage slapped the bouncer then proceeded to breaking a glass in his hand and stabbing him in the eye. The scene quickly became rowdy as other customers rushed to the table and confronted the artist for his violent behavior, before the club’s security team quickly stepped in to salvage the situation by carrying Oristefemi out of the club, while other members of staff focused on giving First aid treatment to the bouncer who almost lost his eye and had already lost .

The statement revealed that the bouncer affected insisted on pressing charges as thus he and Oritsefemi went from the hospital to Bar Beach police station, where Oritsefemi accepted his offense and pleaded for mercy, he was granted bail at 7pm on the 12th of November and advised to report back to the station on Tuesday 15th of November 2016.
