Why I Slapped the Eko Hotel Guard – Seyi Law Narrates His Side of the Story

seyilawJust at the just concluded album launch of fast rising Nigerian music artist, Kiss Daniel, which took place on Sunday, May 15, at the Eko Hotel and Suites, top Nigerian comedian, Seyi Law while on his way home,  got into a nasty drama with one of the body guards.
Contrary to a report which states that Seyi Law and one of the hotel’s security men, Peter Ethan collided as the comedian could not help but slap the security officer.

Seyi Law reportedly slapped Peter who was trying to inform him of an alternative route he could take in order to ease traffic out of the hotel when the comedian got out of his car and slapped him several times.

Taking to his Instagram page, Seyi Law revealed that truly he slapped Peter but he did that because the security officer was rude to him, adding that, he has read other reports about what happened and no one on their right senses would just slap someone who was trying to help him out.

Comedian Seyi said: “I am not writing to defend a mistake I made, but so people would know that I am also prone to faults. However, I will oblige you with my own side of the story.

The Kiss Daniel’s Album Launch show ended and I got in my car to drive out like everyone when I got to the security guy who directed me to the other gate which I did. I got to the gate and was asked to go and take the main gate, driving back, I stopped by the security guy and told him, “make una dey follow una selves talk na, you dey direct us go there, another person dey direct us back” and his response was, ” how many people don turn back”, looking away.
I replied him that even if I was the only person, I no reach to tell you and he said, abeg dey go jor. I was shocked, I said so I not fit follow you talk and he said, dey go. I looked and saw another security not far off and decided to get down from my car to talk with him, unfortunately, as I opened my car, this security guy pushed the door back at me, hitting my leg, I would not know his reason for this, but it got me angry and I slapped him thrice as I got down.
I know Eko Hotel has CCTV and if there was any around there, they can release the footage(s). I am not justifying my anger and reaction, but please pardon my behaviour. I duly apologise for the action I took.
Thanks for reading.
