(GIST): Lynxx Denies Night Club fight
Lynxxx, his manager and a few of his friends were involved in a scuffle at N-Tyce nite club last week Friday March 8th during a birthday gathering for singer, Praiz. But contrary to reports making the rounds that Lynxxx stabbed someone, no one was stabbed, this is according to eye witnesses present that night
Here's what led to the fight. Some UK dude called Pope who is in his late 40's sexually harassed and assaulted Lynxxx manager's cousin, a young lady called Nikki at the club that Friday night. Pope made aggressive advances towards Nikki according to eye witnesses and when she pushed him away from her, Pope allegedly slapped her on her forehead and asked the bouncers to remove her from the VIP section.
When Lynxxx, his manager and their friends heard about what happened, they approached the guy and demanded he apologised to Nikki which Pope refused to do.
"Lynxxx and his crew left the club, and stood outside for about two hours. All they wanted was for the guy to apologize to their friend. They asked the club owner to bring Pope outside so they could settle but the guy refused to come out and refused to apologise to the girl and Lynxxx wasn't going to take someone hitting and harassing a female in his presence. As far as he's concerned there's no excuse for ever hitting a woman and so he and his crew went back into the club to confront the guy but were pushed back by the bouncers who were protecting the guy. During the scuffle, Lynxxx knocked over a table, a glass fell and Lynxxx cut his arm in the process. No one was stabbed and Lynxxx never hit anyone." An eye witness told me Eventually Lynxxx and his crew left the club only to be invited by the police on Monday March 11th. Pope had lodged a complaint claiming that not only was he assaulted by Lynxxx but the rapper/singer also came to his office the following day to threaten his life. Pope is pressing charges for assault and threat to life. But Lynxxx claims he was at Eko Hotel all through Saturday and was never at Pope's office.
Lynxxx and his crew were at the station for over three hours yesterday and Pope has threatened to take the matter to court. Lynxxx also plans to counter-sue.

This is a direct response to the accusations in various media regarding an alleged stabbing and assault by Lynxxx at Club Entyce in Lagos last Friday 8th March when he attended Praiz's birthday celebrations. At no time did Lynxxx assault or stab anyone.
It is unfortunate that instead of verifying the accuracy and extent of the incident, some media outlets have chosen to propagate unfounded rumours and speculations. Contrary to the rumours circulating the web, it is important that we communicate the following:
Lynxxx did not stab or assault any customer at n-tyce Club on 8th march 2013.
No stabbing or assault occurred on 8th March 2013 at n-tyce Club.
At no point did Lynxxx arm himself with a bottle or any other weapon.
Lynxxx was at the event with only 3 members of Syndik8
The incident in question occurred when "Pope" slapped and sexually harassed a young female who is Lynxxx's friend and his manager's cousin, which led to an outcry by many present, including celebrities such as Banky W, Uti and Lynxxx. Seeing as the young female was in tears and distraught they requested that Pope apologise directly to her, which they believed was only right given the severity of his actions. They were however disappointed when no apology was made and even worse when the club staff did not appear to take the situation seriously.
These allegations have now become a police matter and a civil suit for defamation of character.
Thank you for continued support for Lynxxx
