Oritse Femi accuses Quilox bouncer of ‘stealing’ his N8.5m Necklace

Hours after the management of Club Quilox reacted to the saga involving ‘Double Wahala’ crooner, Oritse Femi and a bouncer at the club recently, the artistes who appeared spotting for more trouble has made a public apology for his unruly action.

“Hello my lovely fans,” he writes. “I know a lot of you have been waiting to hear from me directly. Let me start by saying I’m sorry for disappointing you all. I have never been involved in any altercation before now. I love peace and I would never hurt anyone knowingly. Things got out of hands and I reacted badly, it was a mistake, and I take the blame. I’m human and at that moment I acted unruly.

“I want to thank you all for your support over the years and I understand if you are angry with me, I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you to those that have reached out to me.

“There is no ‘Oritsefemi’ without you my lovely fans.

“This will never happen again. Lessons learnt.

“I will continue to give you good music that I am known for not violence.”

Earlier, “varying reports as to what went down have surfaced, until the management of the club released an official statement.

Club Quilox had accusing the artiste of culpability in the brawl.

According to the statement, the artiste was admitted into the club on the request of a patron who later called for his exit from the VIP area, when the artiste sought to add his guests including Sound Sultan, to the patrons table. Thus, he went violent when he was turned down, injuring a bouncer in the process.

“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 statement reads.

In an earlier report, Oritse Femi had claimed that the brawl caused injury for both parties but more for him as he was reportedly beaten up by other bouncers.

He claimed himself and the injured bouncer were rushed to the same hospital after the scuffle, adding that with the intervention of law enforcement officers, he was asked to pay the medical bill of the bouncer which he did, while the bouncer was asked to replace his gold necklace estimated at N8.5m, a payment which he said he was yet to receive.
