A Journalist, Temitayo Adetoto, who made the accusation on her Twitter page, said she saw Seun Kuti pulling out a gun and assaulting guests who were partying near his home along Akin Osiyemi street.

She wrote: “SEUN KUTI pulled out a gun over a street parking matter in Ikeja tonight, personally assaulted the car owners attending the party, used thugs to assault them and called them gluttons at a paid event…I saw it happen.

“It was abt 7pm when I decided to stroll out of the Lagos Facebook Hangout party held at 16, Akin Osinyemi Street, off Allen Ave, Ikeja. Outside the building where I stood, I couldn’t help but shift attention to the man in an armless top & slightly over the knee trouser, raging.

“He was mad that the party attendees littered the street where he obviously lives with their cars – a genuine concern (his gate was affected). There was a resident stranded in his car trying to access his compound but couldn’t.

“Kuti’s fury leaped & began to ridicule the guy who block the access. Whether the guy knew or not that it was Kuti, he screamed back, asking him to take things easy before he leaves.

“Next thing: Some three guys left Kuti’s side and rushed the guy with slaps and blows, while Kuti also landed him a heavy strike on his head amid screaming. This guy retreated, almost crying. He moved his car. But it wasn’t enough.

“Kuti continued to rage at other car owners until one of the organisers, MM, showed up. In the middle of the effort to pacify, one of the bouncers told Kuti to calm down… Next thing again, Kuti’s thugs rushed at the bouncer for such effontery. That’s where the party scattered.

“This time around Kuti went into his compound and brought out a SHORT BLACK GUN! He was attempting to cork it but paused again… I called my friend that we needed to leave immediately.

“I knew trouble was looming on a large scale when the guy who was earlier assaulted returned to the scene. Barely 30 minutes after we left, I got feedback from people at the party that there had been a gunshot, forcing everyone to scamper.

“I’m shocked that Kuti will rather make his point with a gun than engage the organisers…seeing him in the movie ‘Citation’ & how he found his voice during #EndSarsProtests reinforces the feeling that things aren’t what they seem. KUTI was a thug to behold.”

Reacting to the allegation on Sunday, Seun Kuti shared his own side of the story in a video shared on his Instagram page captioned: “Gun or no Gun My life was threatened openly!”

The 37-year-old Afrobeat star who affirmed that there were gunshots on the street because one of the bouncers from a party threatened his life, did not admit to pulling out a gun.

The singer admitted beating up a group of heavily built men (bouncers) because they had threatened to kill him when he challenged them for hosting a day-long party that blocked off the exit to his home.

He said: “I don’t make new friends , I don’t go for events because I don’t vibe with the conversation and stay away from everything in my little lane but people keep testing and trying me.

“What happened yesterday, one woman came to invest in our street and built a hotel, they held a party and cars blocked the streets and the entrance of my house.

“It’s like we’re trapped because some people want to make money for themselves. They put cars all over our streets. These people didn’t notify us yesterday and started their party at 9am with loud music,” he said.

“Everywhere in my house was shaking. I went to bed at 7:30. I tried to sleep but I couldn’t. 6:30pm and the party was still on. I wanted to go but these people had blocked my gate and my neighbours. For 20 minutes, I was looking for these b**tards.

“I got angry and they went into the party to call the person who parked the car. He came and was doing like some big man. He questioned me and I slapped him straight.

“What if we needed to take a dying person out on emergency? Nobody thinks about that because they want to eat free rice. The guy was moving his car but the party people called their bouncers to my own house.

“All men, we launched them back to their party. I was about to drive out when one of the party-goer stopped dead in the middle of the road as his fuel finished. I was waiting for them to buy fuel and their bouncers came back to threaten my life.

“They said they’d come and look for me and treat my f**k-up. Should I have let him come and kill me? That was where the fight started and we did not need to pull guns on anyone. We beat them with our bare hands. We broke their noses and tore their uniforms. They escaped naked in short nickers.

“There were gunshots because there were men. Did they expect they’ll try rubbish and guns wouldn’t sound? Even if the federal government comes for me without an arrest warrant, it’ll be a shootout.”
