Not a few of MI Abaga’s fans were jolted off their seats when the rapper went on Twitter to rant about the ‘ill-treatment’ he suffered at the popular Lagos club, Quilox.
In a series of tweets which revealed how displeased he was, MI called for the sack of the club’s management and went on to add that they should not be waiting with bathed breath to see him make a return visit.
The Quilox management have, however, responded to his Twitter rant explaining their side of the story.
According to them, MI essentially refused to leave the stage at an agreed time on the last day of February while performing at the Live & Unplugged show and they thought it okay to… err, show him that his time was up.
Read their statement below.
The recent tweets by Rapper MI has come to our attention and we found it necessary to address the issue.
Quilox had a contract with Live&Unplugged on 28th February between 10pm-12am. Live&Unplugged contracted M.I as their artist for the night.
At 12am on the said day, M.I was still performing and majority of our customers were complaining and demanding the DJ as we had other events planned for the night. In the process, some customers left.
However, the management honoured M.I’s presence by giving him an additional 30mins and informed his management that he would need to stop at exactly 12.30am. At 12.34am, he was still playing.
Our management at this point was forced to take a decision at 12.45am and let the DJ start his set for the night. The 1st song he played was M.I – Bad Belle to show no disrespect.
The Quilox management apologised and went on to advise the award winning rapper on the best way to address perceived grievances instead of tweeting;
Again, we apologise for any inconvenience caused. Quilox however is a business that adheres to it’s agreed terms of contract and respectsprofessionalism.
We accord all clients and customers due respect irrespective of class or status. In order to resolve issues quickly we have a standard complaints procedure which involves contacting management directly or via email.
As we look forward to continue to render the best of services, we hope to avoid scenarios like this one, but in case any complaints are to be made, kindly direct them to [email protected] We’ll be sure to respond promptly.
