Married Lady Recounts Traumatizing Experience With Burner Boy At Cubana Nightclub

Burna Boy

Nigerian afro-beats star Burna Boy sat atop today’s Twitter trends after a married lady recounted how accomplices of the 20 10 20 singer attacked her and her friends at the club after she severally rejected his inappropriate advances.

The married lady named Briella Neme took to her Instagram story to share what transpired between herself and Burna Boy. She revealed that the incident which has left her traumatized occurred on the 8th of June at the famous Victoria Island nightclub, Cuba owned and run by popular businessman Obi Cubana.

Briella recounted that she and her friends had traveled from America and London for a friend’s wedding in Lagos and later converged at the popular nightclub for some more fun. In the company of her husband and other friends, Briella narrated how she was approached by one of Burna’s bodyguards who told her that Burna sought her attention at his side of the VIP section to which she politely refused, noting that she was married and with her husband.

Regardless, Burna’s guard was adamant, she said, as he approached her a second and then a third time with the same request. Soon Briella and her friends became infuriated with the inappropriate advances which triggered a brawl that later turned deadly to their shock. Though security stepped in to quell the fight, the whole incident turned deadly after Burna’s guards opened fire at the club shooting two of her friends who were lucky to escape with their lives.

Briella concluded her writing by noting that there was no action from Cubana’s management to address the situation either. She expressed disdain at Burna’s remorseful reaction to the incident she said could have claimed the lives of her friends.

Read Briella’s full post below;

“We were visiting Nigeria from America and London for our childhood friend’s wedding. On the 8th of June 2022, @burnaboygram & his friends opened fire at us in @cubanalagos. My partner and his friend were shot, with both needing urgent medical care. A bullet grazed my partner’s head and our friend was shot in the thigh, leaving him hospitalised and needing an emergency surgery in Nigeria.”

“As the night progressed, one of Burna Boy’s friends walked to talk to me, his request was for Burna Boy to talk to me. On that first attempt, I told him I wasn’t interested in talking to Burna Boy and I am married to my partner. He came again the second time and was met with the same response.”

“He came the third time and that caused a few of our friends to flare up as they asked why he kept coming to disturb me. There were words back and forth and one of Burna Boy’s friends attacked one of our friends, and as they attacked him, the situation degenerated into a fight.”

“At this point, I couldn’t find my partner or my best friend. I was screaming for help after being lifted and thrown so hard on the floor by one of Burna’s friends and I hurt my left shoulder. All our private police officers were not allowed into the club, so it was left to us to fight for our lives. One of our friends @theflowolf was trying to get Burna Boy to calm the situation but he only laughed at him and proceeded to get in his car whilst being protected by his security.”

“The shootings happened twice at different times. His friends were also shooting at people trying to evacuate the club through the main entrance. They were out to kill and didn’t care who got hit. My partner’s head was bleeding profusely and his friend lost so much blood he needed a donor As soon as he got to the hospital.”

“@burnaboygram left @cubanalagos without a scratch and flew out to Spain the next morning.”

“@obi_cubana only reached out to us four days after the event claiming he had no idea and would do everything to get us justice for attempted murder. 11 days later, there has been no CCTV footage released by the club OR even a statement to address the incident publicly. Business has carried on as usual for him.”

“To sum things up, I’m traumatised. I’ve broken down every day since then. The random flashbacks and nightmares. Especially after seeing @burnaboygram’s response. The lack of remorse or accountability is beyond me. At least two people could’ve died that night.”

It would be recalled that the police arrested some of their men attached to Burna Boy after the incident occurred. Others who witnessed the incident also took to social media to recount their side of the story.

Burna Boy responded to the allegations from Spain, tweeting;

“Nigerian Social media can say BURNA BOY started Boko haram, e no go shock me.”

The fresh revelations from Briella Neme saw Burna come under fresh fire on social media. Many Nigerians have described Burna’s actions as hypocritical referencing his criticism of police brutality and saying that he’s no different from them.

“How Much Does An Average Actor Make in Nigeria?” – Actress Hilda Dokubo Bemoans USD100K Ransom Demanded For Kidnapped Nollywood Actors

hilda dokubo

Insecurity is at an all-time high in the nation and our beloved celebrities are not being exempted from the increasing mayhem that continues to plague our communities and cities. Last week two Nollywood veterans (Cynthia Okereke and Cornel Clemson) were kidnapped with the captors requesting a whopping ransom of $100,000, approximately NGN71 million. Actress and Federal House of Reps hopeful, Hilda Dokubo has bemoaned the unfortunate incident.

In an Instagram post made on Sunday, July, 31st, Dokubo lamented over the incident describing how financial problems stemming from insufficient earing as well as terminal illnesses had become the bane of most Nollywood actors and actresses.

“Nollywood is about moving from one level of begging for alms to save an ill or dying colleague to now facing the worse of fears over two of their colleagues facing God knows what in the hands of kidnappers,” the actress wrote in the caption section of the Instagram post accompanied by a pictorial write-up that read; “One hundred thousand dollars ransom demand for 2 decent hardworking Nigerians whose only offense was that they were returning from work.”

Dokubo hinted at the poor judgment of the kidnappers saying how they were unable to differentiate between what was real and fiction portrayed in the movies by Nollywood actors.

She added;

“Where will we turn if not the public using our social media platforms? Well…Finally, the kidnappers have made their demands. They want money! 100k USdollars! From where? Unfortunately, they misjudged the financial status of the actors they kidnapped! And think that as it is in the movies that are how it is in real life. What a life!”

Dokubo further explained how she knew these two actors on a personal level and was sure that they had no such money anywhere to ransom their lives from their abductors.

“Where will we get one hundred thousand USdollars from? God save all of us from this pain and give us your grace for this period. I know some actors paint the wrong picture on social media all the time but it is only in line with the “Show” part of SHOWbiz. Hopefully, you’ll understand what I mean.”

“I am pained because I know these two personally, have worked with them and I know the truth of how it is with them. Just been asking myself one question all day, How much does an average actor make in Nigeria?”

Over the weekend the news that both Okereke and Clemson were kidnapped made it to the airwaves via a statement by Monalisa Chinda, the Communications Director of the Actor’s Guild of Nigeria (AGN). Both were returning from a movie set in Ozalla town in Enugu state on Friday, July 29 when they were unfortunately ambushed by the kidnappers.

Actress Hilda Dokubo Confident In Labour Party’s Takeover of Rivers State

Hilda Dokubo

Veteran Nollywood actress Hilda Dokubo has expressed confidence in the Labour party structure saying that the party has what it takes to displace the ruling People’s Democratic Party in her state of origin, Rivers State.

Hilda made this known while attending a Labour Party strategic meeting held in the state’s capital Port-Harcourt on Thursday, July 28th. Responding to criticisms that the third-force party lacked the structure to excel at the 2023 polls, Dokubo stated; “Individuals are the structures of every political party and we have our teaming supporters here in the state.”

Dokubo is flying the Labour Party flag vying for the Kuku-Toru/Asari-Toru Federal Constituency seat in the forthcoming elections. Dokubo who believes that a political revolution is on the horizon has frequently lauded youths for their increased participation in the electoral process and has urged them on on their demand for better governance across the country.

A few weeks ago, the actress-cum politician called on INEC to provide more electoral materials to rural parts of Rivers State in order to meet up with the high turnout of youths seeking to register for their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC).

“For the first time in my life, I see young people who are hungry to participate in governance, in deciding who their leaders will be,” the actress said. She added, “That is so encouraging because we have been on that battle of young people and women participating effectively. Not just being represented but participating themselves.”

Criticizing INEC’s incompetence at handling voter registration the actress further said;

“We have seen huge turnout of young people across Nigeria but we have not witnessed that INEC collaboration. They have extended the period of registration but have they increased the number of machines that we need? I am actually saying to INEC; we need more machines, we need more hands. More people are interested. It is not like before when only few people come out.”

The INEC Voter Registration process will be ending in a few days on Sunday the 31st of July. However, there has been a wide clamor by citizens to extend the process until three months to the election day.
