The ‘Rihanna’ crooner, born Esegine Allen, better known by his stage name, Orezi, has released a statement dismissing the recent rape allegation against the singer. He had just finished a show in Surulere, Lagos, on Sunday when the man waylaid him and accused him of sleeping with his wife.
The unnamed man tried to beat him up, but for the intervention of some mobile policemen in Orezi’s company. Dismissing the allegation, Orezi’s management on Saturday in a release, described it as ‘mischievous’. The statement reads:
“We have seen a video that is being circulated about a man who accosted Orezi after his performance in Surulere and accused him of sleeping with his wife.
“We implore all Orezi’s fans to ignore the video as that incident was a mischievous attempt by the man to gain cheap popularity.
“Orezi neither knows the man nor his wife.
“Orezi is dedicated to his career at this time and will continue to work hard to give his fans good music,” the statement added
