Hours after the management of Quilox Club in Victoria Island reacted to the fight incident involving ‘Double Wahala’ crooner, Oritse Femi and a bouncer at the club recently, the artiste who appeared spotting for more trouble has made a public apology to his fans for his unruly behavior.
Femi writes: “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.”
Earlier, “varying reports as to what went down have surfaced, until the management of the club released an official statement.
Club Quilox had to accuse the artiste of culpability in the fight.
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 section, when the artiste sought to add his guests including Sound Sultan, to the patron’s table. Thus, he went violent when he was turned down, hurting 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.
