Nigerian singer, Mr. 2Kay who was romantically linked with a contestant in the recently concluded Big Brother Naija reality TV competition, Gifty, has finally opened up on his experience at the Eko Hotels where he was allegedly assaulted by men contracted by Nigerian dancehall singer, Burna Boy.
Speaking to Saturday Beats following the police’s decision to declare Burna Boy wanted, the Nigerian singer narrated his experience adding that he almost died on the day of the attack.
Mr. 2Kay said: “When they were beating me, I thought I was going to die on that day. When you see a man with a gun, anything can happen. They were debating on whether to shoot me or not. They were debating over my life if I should live or not. It was one of them that said he was my fan and he loved my song.
“That person did not touch me; he only tied me to a chair and was calming me down. It was God that saved my life because when I first saw them, the first thing I shouted was Jesus and I believe that was what saved me.”
Mr. 2Kay further revealed that the accused singer, Burna Boy, called him to apologize for the misdeed adding that he only wanted the singer to admit to his fault.
Mr. 2Kay further revealed that it came as a surprise to him when his case was filed in court without either Burna Boy or his manager’s name in the suit.
“What I said was that Burna Boy has called me and he apologised without admitting that he was involved in the assault on me. He told me that he had no hand in it. I had to reply him that I never fingered him; it was his manager and the boys that fingered him. All we need is honesty and the truth. He cannot apologise to me over a matter that he has no hand in.
“At the end of the day, we all want this issue to go with this year and start the New Year on a fresh note. I was supposed to release my album this year but we could not do so because of this whole issue.
“Next year should be a very busy one for me and I don’t want to spend my time at a police station or pay numerous visits to the commissioner of police. I just want to have peace. Burna Boy is still my brother any day and I have forgiven him but what we want is the truth. If he calls me and opens up, we have said that we would settle it out of court. It is possible for us to have a song together in the future if he wants it because he is my brother. I swear with my life that I hold nothing against Burna Boy.”
