The fight at Quilox nightclub has continued to generate more interesting reactions from the parties involved.
The latest is an apology message posted on Instagram on Tuesday by Double Walaha crooner, Oritsefemi, from his hospital bed after he was said to have been injured by a bouncer at the club.
Read his apology below
“Hello my lovely fans, 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. Thank you once again and God bless you all for me, much love my people,” he said.
However, it is not clear why the singer is posting the message from a sick bay after he was said to have travel to Osun State to perform.
After the bloody clash on Friday, November 11, the management of the nightclub released a statement revealing their own side of the story.
Oritsefemi bumped into the club without a prior arrangement to book for a table; they alleged.
According to the statement: “We were hesitant to release a press statement as several well-meaning people have attempted to intercede on behalf of the artist but after his malicious and grossly false account of the event that occurred, it is only fair that we defend the integrity and ethos of our organization.
“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.”
