Quilox Releases Official Statement And Photos On The Altercation Involving Musician Oritsefemi And A Bouncer
There are accusations flying from all corners regarding the altercation involving Oritse Femi and his crew and Quilox night club. You can read what Ckub Quilox said about the incident and also read what Oritse Femi’s crew also said below.
This is what Club Quilox has to say:
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 reservations or table bookings. 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 or member of the club and tables are allocated according to 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 patrons 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.
In a surprising turn of events, Oristsemi who was drinking from the patrons bottle, threw caution to the wind by attempting to sit eight 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 patrons guests were still being expected. However Oristefemi in a fit of unprovoked rage slapped the bouncer then proceeded to breaking a glass in his hand and stabing 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 Oristefemi 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. Oristefemi 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 Bar Beach police station, where Oritsefemi accepted his offense and pleaded for mercy, he was granted bail at 12pm on the 13th of November and advised to report back to the station on Tuesday 15th of November 2016.
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 events that occured, it is only fair that we defend the integrity and ethos of our organization.
IMPORTANT POINTS TO NOTE ARE
– Quilox is the number one luxury lifestyle brand in Nigeria, all areas of our establishment are premium as thus the allegation of denying access of certain people to certain areas is completely unfounded. this particular issue happened on a table of six at the upstairs part of the club not in the entire VIP area.
– Quilox treats all our patrons with the utmost respect and dignity, our professionalism and uncompromising customer service is what has kept us at the peak for so long, the poorly worded statement by Oritsefemi’s media team claiming our CEO made derogatory remarks towards our loyal clientele(A list celebrities) is reasons best known to him, because instead of taking responsibility for his actions, him and his management are looking for artists support, and to what cause?
– Club Quilox did not press charges against the artist despite his unruly behavior at our establishment, however the bouncer in question has signified his intention to pursue his fundamental human rights due to the grave bodily harm that befell him.
– The music industry veteran – Sound Sultan is a member of the Quilox family and cousin to our CEO as thus it is impossible for him to be treated in the manner Oritsefemi implied, as a matter of fact he was one of those who quickly diffused the situation before it got out of hand
– Club Quilox prides itself on the premium luxury lifestyle experience we provide our patrons, we abhor violence and do not support or condone any such acts on our premises.
– Oristefemi did not report ANY missing jewelry in his statement at the Bar beach Police Station neither did he make any reports to the management of Club Quilox
Attached are graphic pictures and a video of the bouncer Oritsefemi assaulted and also a picture of Oritefemi at the hospital before he was taken to the police station, with the said weapon included.
We thank our members and patrons for their unrelenting loyalty and custom as we assure them of their continued safety and comfort at Club Quilox

Meanwhile, Oritse Femi’s management ‘MSN Gang’ released an official statement..Read below:
On Friday 11th 2016, at exactly 2am at Quilox Night Club. Oriste Femi was attacked by a bouncer just because he was trying to stand for an older Colleague and a friend.
According to His Management MSN GANG the Double wahala & Ongba Larami singer was at Quilox on Friday trying to ease off stress with his friends at the VIP corner of the said club when he noticed a senior colleague and a brother Sound sultan and Rock Steady were been bounced from entering the VIP section of the club.
Oriste Femi who was not happy with the bouncers behavior 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 Artiste were not his costumers and they have no value at his Club Just because of his rift with Davido [Does that make any sense at all] After which, The bouncer told him to keep to his section or go join his colleague at the regular section, Femi who we all know to be a very humble and calm person accept 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 attack Oriste Femi and in the process of the attack Oriste femi’s 8.5million Naira worth of jewelry was stolen by the club bouncers, before the crowd will stand up to protest against the club bouncers attitude Oriste femi was already injured,Even with the injury he was held down by the bouncer s and the management of the club claiming they were waiting for the arrival of Police.
On the Arrival of police oriste femi and the bouncer were arrested and taken to the police station were the ipo in charge of the case ordered Oriste femi to Threat 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 Oriste femi’s 8.5million Naira worth of jewelry which he Hasn’t received till the Period.
If we all will recur these Same Quilox was the same place Dammy Krane got messed up by Bouncers, these same club was the same club Davido got Confronted by this same Bouncers.
What Kind of Club is THIS? Is that how our beloved Country Ambassadors should be treated?
