Nigerian singer, Seun Kuti has responded after he was accused of brandishing a fireman during a brawl at his area of residence in Ikeja, Lagos state on Saturday.
An eyewitness, Temitayo Ayetoto had taken to Twitter to call out the singer for pulling out a gun on people who attended a party on his street.
The 37-year-old singer was said to have been involved in a scuffle over parking space. He was accused of assaulting one of the party-goers for blocking the entrance of his home with his car.
Mr Kuti, however, released a tweet in which he addressed the allegation, noting that he had even received a message of gratitude from one of his neighbors regarding the issue.
The ‘Rise’ crooner also went live on Instagram where he shared his own of the story.
The singer, who is the son of afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, said that the party-goers were fond of littering his street with their cars and parking indiscriminately, making it almost impossible for him and his neighbors to move about freely.
The singer said that he had discovered that someone had used his car to block his gate when he wanted to go out and things escalated after one of the bouncers at the party accosted him and threatened his life.
The singer admitted he and his neighbors assaulted the bouncer and gave him the beating of his life.
In his words;
“Their bouncer came to meet me and threatened my life. He threatened my f**king life. He said ‘no be you be Seun Kuti? Me I dey come Shrine well well. I go come Shrine come find you. I go treat your f**kup’.
I should let him go so he would come and kill me? So I said you will kill me? You will treat my f**kup?
That is when the fight started. And we didn’t need to pull guns on anybody because we beat them with our bare hands, burst all their nose, tore all their uniform.
Yes there were gunshots because men dey. Men dey! This is f**king Allen fam! You want to try rubbush. I didn’t come to your hood. You want to try rubbish and gunshot wouldn’t sound?” he said.
