Singer, Ikechukwu got more than he bargained in the hands of bouncers at Rehab, an hangout located on Ajose Adeogun Street Victoria Island, Lagos.Ikechukwu, who was visiting the place after the MTV Africa Music Awards was bared by stern looking bouncers who obviously didn’t know who he was. Naeto C and other celebs were allowed in but he was shut out by the bouncers.
Ikechukwu felt insulted that the bouncers didnt recognised him.Before you could say ‘nothing dey happen’- the whole thing degenerated into a hot argument with Ikechukwu blowing the bouncer in the mouth and blood started rushing out. The bouncer couldn’t respond back to Ikechukwu because if he should fight back the management of the club will take it against him.
For minutes , people dragged and dragged Ikechukwu out of the scene with the likes of Sound Sultan wadding the matter.At this time, he had already removed his shirt. His girlfriend, Sarah Ofili who was at the scene was obviously embarrassed at the whole development.
Gistmaster.com later saw him explaining to some people that the bouncer was getting trilled at the whole thing because he saw people with cameras capturing the whole development. He kept on refering to one of the mediators as Lolu ( Who obviously was not).
Rehab is operated by two Island big boys, Aisien Owen and Lolu Shodehinde.
