The fight happened between the singer and Club Quilox bouncers over neglecting some other artistes from entering the VIP section of the club.

The story was told from the point of view of Oritsefemi and also from the Club’s perspective. Although there are some slight differences in the story lines, both pointed to the fact that ‘VIP entry’ was the bottom line issue.

Here’s Oritsefemi’s POV by his management:

“Oritsefemi was at the VIP corner when he noticed Sound Sultan and Rock Steady were being bounced from entering the VIP section of the club. Oriste Femi, who was not happy with the bouncer’s 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 artiste 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.’

“Oriste 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 Oristefemi and in the process, Oristefemi’s N8.5m worth of jewelry 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 Oristefemi’s jewelry, which he hasn’t received till now.”

Here is the story from the POV of Quilox nightclub owner, Shina Peller:

“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.

“The incident started at about 2am Saturday morning when Oritsefemi came into Quilox without prior reservation or table booking. It is important to note that tables are allocated to customers who have made prior paid table bookings in advance of their arrival except such customer is a patron member of the club and tables are allocated on availability in such case.

“However, Oritsefemi who did not fall into any of the categories above approached a patron and after pleading was accommodated on patron’s table, but with the understanding that other guests of the said patron were still been expected to join the table shortly which Oritsefemi agreed to. It is important to note that this is a table that could only accommodate a maximum of  six people overlooking the center of attraction part of the club.

“In a surprising turn of event, Oritsefemi who was drinking from the patron’s bottle, threw caution to the wind by attempting to sit some of his guests at the table, the surprised patron 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. However, Oritsefemi in a fit of unprovoked rage slapped the bouncer then proceeded to breaking a glass in his hand and stabbing him in the eye.

“Despite his position or the power he thinks he has as a celebrity, this is not an excuse for inflicting grave bodily harm on another human being.

“The scene quickly became rowdy as other customers rushed to the table and confronted the artist for his violent behavior, our security team quickly stepped in to salvage the situation by carrying Oritsefemi out of the club (this is our standard procedure for violent altercations) while other members of staff focused on giving First aid treatment to the bouncer who almost lost his eye and had already lost so much blood. 

“Oritsefemi faced by an enraged crowd outside and perhaps realizing the gravity of his offense pretended to collapse. The artist and the bouncer were subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital.

“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 offence 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.”
