Nigerian singer Burna Boy has been reportedly invited by the police for questioning over his alleged involvement in singer Mr 2Kay’s robbery attack.
Recall, on 22nd of October, Mr 2kay was robbed at gunpoint in his hotel room, at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos around 11pm after his performance at the “Buckwyld N Breathless” concert at the hotel.
According to a statement made available by his record label, Graftin, the incident happened at about 11 PM on Sunday, October 22, 2017, during the Buckwyld and Breathless concert where he also performed.
The robbers, 4 in number, gained access into Mr. 2Kay’s room after he mistook one of them for room service. They forced their way into his room and waved a gun with threats to shoot him if he made a noise.
Mr. 2Kay, who was in the room with a friend, struggled with one of the robbers, as the others punched and hit him with a gun, repeatedly warning that they will shoot if he doesn’t calm down.
One of the robbers led and locked 2Kay’s friend in the bathroom, while the others tied the singer’s arms, legs and mouth and took his valuables including jewelry, clothes, perfumes, phones, and money. They also cut the room’s intercom (phone) to avoid any form of communication as they left the hotel.
The hotel authorities and police have taken statements for investigation, while Mr. 2Kay is getting medical attention for his wounds. “I was quite shocked when I got to Mr. 2Kay’s room last night.
This was somebody I watched perform some minutes before the incident. Anyway, the hotel authorities and police are already investigating the incident and we hope they’ll apprehend the criminals as soon as possible,” said James Silas, Manager of Grafton Records.
Well, some of the culprits were arrested and one of them implicated the reggae-dancehall singer, Burna Boy.
According to LIB, a guy named Joel, said to be Burnaboy’s road manager, was the last person to leave Mr 2Kay’s hotel room before 4 men stormed his room after Mr. 2Kay mistook one of them for room service.
They robbed him at gun point and beat him before they left.
You will recall that a few weeks before the attack, Mr 2Kay slammed Burnaboy on Twitter after Burnaboy said he will beat up fake and fraudulent pastors. We hear that Mr 2Kay calling out Burnaboy didn’t go down well with him and he (Burnaboy) sent a dm to Mr2Kay threatening him.
Anyway, as at the time of this post, We don’t know the level of Burnaboy’s involvement in the attack but we know he was invited by the police because the men arrested for the robbery implicated him.
