Lynxxx was partying in the new club located in Victoria Island with Uzzi (Ikechukwu’s brother), SDC, Uti Nwachukwu, Banky W, Timi Dakolo and a host of other musicians when a scuffle broke out. Security at the club quickly pushed out those that started the fight, and at the centre of it was Lynxxx who said a certain Richard a.k.a Pope slapped his cousin. The manager of the night club pleaded with Lynxxx and his syndicate crew who numbered about 30 to make peace but they insisted that Richard must be brought out of the club. Banky W who was not involved in the fight also pleaded with him but it all fell on deaf ears. After about 1 hour, Lynxxx and his gang rushed into the club and started fighting. He broke a bottle and stabbed Richard while also injuring and cutting himself by mistake. The whole club turned upside down as guests scampered out for safety. A lot of drinks and equipment worth millions were damaged.
The victim; Richard a.k.a Pope who is a UK based entrepreneur has since reported the case to the police and hired Festus Keyamu as his Lawyer to prosecute him. Lynxxx whose father is a multi-millionaire has bragged that nothing will happen and even said he will do it again if given the chance.
Press Release released by Lynxxx’s Record Label (Syndik8 Records)
This is a direct response to the accusations in various media regarding an alleged stabbing and assault by Lynxxx at Club Entyce in Lagos last Friday 8th March when he attended Praiz’s birthday celebrations. At no time did Lynxxx assault or stab anyone.
It is unfortunate that instead of verifying the accuracy and extent of the incident, some media outlets have chosen to propagate unfounded rumours and speculations. Contrary to the rumours circulating the web, it is important that we communicate the following:
- Lynxxx did not Stab or assault any customer at n-tyce Club on 8th march 2013.
- No stabbing or assault occurred on 8th March 2013 at n-tyce Club.
- At no point did Lynxxx arm himself with a bottle or any other weapon.
- Lynxxx was at the event with only 3 members of Syndik8
The incident in question occurred when “Pope” slapped and sexually harassed a young female who is Lynxxx’s friend and his manager’s cousin, which led to an outcry by many present, including celebrities such as Banky W, Uti and Lynxxx. Seeing as the young female was in tears and distraught they requested that Pope apologise directly to her, which they believed was only right given the severity of his actions. They were however disappointed when no apology was made and even worse when the club staff did not appear to take the situation seriously.
These allegations have now become a police matter and a civil suit for defamation of character. Thank you for continued support for Lynxxx.
We take this very seriously and we would be happy to respond to further enquiries, Please email : Chin@EclipseWestAfrica.com
