Davido seems to stay in some sort of controversy or another. If it’s not over the music, then it’s over something outside music. Over the weekend, Davido’s bouncer was said to have been involved in a fight at an Abuja Night Club, and the incident was so serious that he got stabbed a view times, and many others were injured in the process.
Fans reported the incident via twitter and many claim his bouncer started the whole issue.
Apparently the club DJ, JayDee was trying to hand Davido his ATM card that fell off, and the bouncer promptly stopped him. A few words were exchanged and the bouncer slapped the DJ.
In the fracas, the DJ apparently smashed a bottle of brandy on the bouncer’s head and that’s when the whole thing too a whole new dimension. There were allegedly bottles flying all over the place and some club goers were injured in the process.
One eye witness from twitter reported “So @iam_davido came in wit his group of smellos to fight & kill people in d bar i was at w/ my niggas earlier 2day..Chale, yu’re so Useless! @iam_davido I stepped on those bottles yo deranged bouncer smashed olva d place. see, Am makn enof of these money soon just 2 sue u bastard”
Here is the official statement from Davido’s camp, and they have their side of the story:
The facts: DJ Jaydee of Grotto Stabbed Davido’s Bodyguards, Evades police
Falsified accounts of a recent incident at the Grotto club on Sunday have made the rounds. Davido’s Management hereby wishes to clear the air on them with the statement below.
After a successful outing at a recent concert on Sunday November 3 at Eko Hotels, popular musician Davido headed to the Grotto Nightclub on Victoria Island. After a brief stay at the club, Davido and his crew proceeded to his vehicle outside to head home.
Upon alighting, he was accosted by an already drunk ‘DJ Jide Jay Dee’who had in his hand a champagne flute. This DJ Jaydee informed Teejay that he had the ATM card in his hand and would like to personally deliver it to Davido.
Teejay politely asked him to hand over the ATM card as it was clear that Davido was right in his view in his car. DJ Jaydee refused to hand over the card without payment and instead proceeded to shout that he knew who Davido was personally and that he [DJ Jaydee] was a known person in Lagos.
Teejay refusd him access to Davido which led DJ Jaydee to throw the ATM card on the ground in anger. As Teejay bent to retrieve the card, DJ Jaydee stabbed him in the neck with the champagne flute he was holding. An oblivious Teejay threw him off his back and proceeded to return the ATM card to Davido.
As he was entering the car to leave, one of the occupants noticed the stab wounds and called his attention to the blood. Teejay promptly alighted from the car and went to confront DJ Jaydee who was still yelling outside. DjJaydee apparently not done with his violence stabbed the bodyguard a second time, this time on his hands and ran off into the club. Teejay searched for him to no avail and left the club soon after.
Tijani Olamilekan Ogbeide has since reported the matter to the police and they have been to the club to invite DJ Jaydee for questioning.
Grotto has been unable to deliver DJ Jaydee to the police, instead malicious and falsified accounts of the incident have found their way on social media portals being championed of course by sources intent on casting vile aspersions on Davido and his bodyguard Teejay. DjJaydee is yet to surface.
Tijani Olamilekan Ogbeide has pressed charges to this effect.
Davido’s management categorically refutes all the allegations of violence as insinuated by some. Teejay was carrying out his job by restricting access to Davido from an unknown and obviously inebriated and violent individual.
He performed his duties as bodyguard and instead of resorting to violence, followed the dictates of the law.Members of the public and fans should please note that Davido was not present at this unfortunate incident that occurred that night as erroneously reported in a few quarters.
