Popular Nigerian singer Mr 2kay was on Sunday, October 22, beaten and robbed in his room at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos. According to reports, the singer was said to have finished his performance at the Buckwyld and Breathless concert when he walked up to his room around 11pm when the unfortunate incident happened. It was gathered that the four-man gang robbers gained entrance into his room after he mistook one of them for room service.

They were reported to have forced their way into the room and threatened the singer not to make noise or they will kill him. Mr 2kay who was in the room with a friend tried to struggle with the robbers but he was mercilessly beaten in the process. His friend was then locked in the bathroom. The singer who is currently getting medical attention was reportedly tied up while they made away with phones, money, jewelry, clothes, perfumes and other valuable items. The intercom was also disengaged in order to avoid any form of communication till they were gone.

Grafton Records manager James Silas also disclosed that he was shocked when he got into the room and saw what happened to Mr 2kay. Silas said: “I was quite shocked when I got to Mr. 2kay’s room last night. This was somebody I watched perform some minutes before the incident. Anyway, the hotel authorities and police are already investigating the incident and we hope they’ll apprehend the criminals as soon as possible.” It could be recalled that on Wednesday, October 11, Nollywood actress Moyo Lawal took to her Instagram handle to narrate how she survived a robbery attack while driving in traffic. She said they broke her car side glass but could not make away with anything but she sustained some injuries. We hope these robbers are found!
