Hip hop singer, Majemite Ekele, aka Oritsefemi confirmed on Sunday that he was involved in a brawl at the Quilox nightclub in Lagos as indicated in a video making rounds on social media.
While confirming the episode, the management of the musician said in a statement, “On Friday 11th 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. Oritse Femi was at the VIP corner when he noticed Sound Sultan and Rock Steady were being bounced from entering the VIP section of the club.
“ Oritse Femi who was not happy with the bouncers behaviour stood up to ask the bouncer why he was putting up such attitude to An A list Artiste and a brother, the bouncer replied that an order was placed down by Shina Peller the CEO of the club that no A list Artist should be allowed into the VIP section, claiming the A list Artistes were not his costumers and they have no value at his club just because of his rift with Davido.
“The bouncer told him to keep to his section or go join his colleague at the regular section. Femi accepted the offer to join his colleague 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 cup of wine had to defend himself by slapping the bouncer with the wine cup, which gave the bouncer a scar on the face.
“Without waiting for explanation, the other bouncers in the club came in and attacked Oritse Femi and in the process of the attack Oritse Femi’s N8.5 million worth of jewellery was stolen by the club bouncers.
“Femi was injured and held down by the bouncers, claiming they were waiting for the arrival of police.
“ On the arrival of police, Femi and the bouncer were arrested and taken to the police station where the IPO in charge of the case ordered Femi to treat the injured bouncer which he did and even gave the bouncer extra cash for self-medication.
“The IPO also ordered the bouncer and the club management to provide Oritse Femi’s jewellery, which he hasn’t received till now.
“If we all will recall, this same Quilox was the same place Dammy Krane got messed up by bouncers, same club Davido got confronted by this same bouncers.”
