Nigerian singer, Seun Kuti, has revealed why gunshots were fired at part goers on his street at Allen Avenue, Lagos state.
Yesterday, journalist, Temitayo Ayetoto, said on Twitter that Seun Kuti, who was armed, led thugs to vandalise vehicles on Osiyemi Street off Allen Avenue because they were parked indiscriminately.
Reacting to the claims, the son of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela, said the party guests parked their vehicles indiscriminately on the street and played loud music without regard for residents.
The musician said one of the guests parked a vehicle in front of his house and blocked the entrance to his gate.
Seun said he slapped the person and this attracted the attention of the bouncers at the party but things soon simmered down.
He said moments after, as he tried to drive away, a bouncer came to attack him and this degenerated to fisticuffs and gunshots. He said;
“He (bouncer) said he would treat my ‘f**k up. That was when the fight started and we didn’t need to pull guns on anybody because we beat them with our bare hands. Blood on their noses, tore their uniforms. They left our street naked.
“Yes there were gunshots because we have men. This is Allen. I didn’t come to your hood. You want to try rubbish in my hood. You threatened my life in my hood and don’t expect gunshots. Even if the Federal Government comes for me, if they don’t come with a warrant signed by a judge, it will be a shootout. I am saying this for the whole world to hear.
“I never oppressed anybody. They were the ones that threatened my life and blocked my gate. What kind of behaviour is that because you are throwing a party and you don’t even live here.”
