Bella Shmurda debunks rumours about being assaulted in LASU

He has cleared the air about the incident at Lagos State University (LASU).

Nigerian singer Bella Shmurda has denied that he was ever assaulted during Poco Lee’s concert in LASU on Thursday, July 13, 2023.

The entertainer, real name Abiola Akinbiyi, took to his Instagram story on Friday, July 14, 2023, and posted a series of videos partying, dancing and enjoying himself in a club with the caption, “Who slap una papa?”

He told the person behind the camera to record him to ease his fans. In doing so, he debunked the story that he was slapped by suspected cultists at the event.

In the video that circulated, a slightly-dazed Shmurda was seen being escorted out of the school premises by his security detail. After this, there were reports of the singer being assaulted in the VIP section of the concert.

The singer was part of the lineup at the ‘Party with Poco Lee homecoming’ concert; alongside entertainers like Zlatan, Odumodublvck, Soft-made-it, and others. The event was launched into chaos after hoodlums disrupted the event. According to bystanders and eyewitnesses, the event was allegedly overridden by cultists within the school premises.

According to sources present at the event, a percentage of the chaos ensued as a result of the concertgoers stuck outside trying to flood into the event centre. The Bubar Marwa hall was filled beyond its seating capacity of 2,500 people, with over 10,000 tickets reportedly sold for the show.

As of the time of this report, none of the other celebrities at the event have spoken on the topic.
