Nigerian rapper, CDQ recently called out fellow Nigerian artiste, Burna Boy on social media for disrespecting Nigerian football icon, Obafemi Martins.
CDQ’s statement caused massive reactions as football and music fans clashed on Twitter in the aftermath on Monday, March 1, 2021 through Tuesday.
Here is an account of what really happened according to Pulse Nigeria’s exclusive report as seen by Naijawide, the home to a wide range of entertainment.
What Happened at Quilox
In the evening of Sunday, February 28, Burna Boy and his crew were at Quilox, an exotic club on Victoria Island, Lagos. Martins and his crew were also at the club that night. A fight then broke out between businessman, Rahman Jago – a known associate of Burna Boy – and another person.
The issue got so big that Martins’ camp was affected. Due to Jago’s affiliations with Burna Boy, they faced off with the former Super Eagles player and his camp.
Martins himself got physically involved and in the heat of the moment, the footballer had to defend himself and found a way to escape the drama and the danger of it.
A bemused CDQ, who was also at the club on the night, vented at Burna Boy on social media. He felt Burna Boy’s camp had disrespected Martins, a respected footballer and philanthropist.
A thoughtful and respectful Burna Boy then sought to mend bridges with Obafemi Martins, so he reached out and that was achieved. This led to the pictures of Burna Boy, CDQ, SammyLarry and Martins that went viral on Monday evening.
On the night of March 1, CDQ was at the club when a confrontation ensued with Burna Boy’s camp, led by a guy named Richie. As the issue escalated, CDQ said he was stabbed by Burna Boy’s camp and left bloodied.
Upon hearing about CDQ’s maltreatment, his camp stormed the same club and a fresh fight ensued with Burna Boy’s camp – a few other people got injured.
According to the audio obtained by Pulse Nigeria, explicitly confirmed Burna Boy’s involvement. Speaking in Yoruba, he says,
“It was Burna and his squad, led by a guy named Richie who later got stabbed as well. I made sure that he bled. [My People] questioned Burna’s sanity to do this in Lagos; not Port Harcourt or London.”
In a video also obtained, a deep cut is seen above CDQ’s left ear, from where blood gushes profusely. CDQ’s white Inter Milan shirt has blood stains while a white towel is visibly seen, drenched in blood, presumably that of rapper.
In another audio from the same source, CDQ is heard in Yoruba saying,
“He [Burna Boy] is an oloribuku. When [his camp] got done, I called my people over to retaliate against [Burna’s] camp. [Burna] then took me to the hospital where I got two pints of blood last night.
“Later, [Burna] asked me to enter the club and have a few drinks, so that people could make a video to prove that everything was settled.”

Word from Burna Boy’s camp
Burna Boy’s camp has denied the allegations. In fact, they claimed that CDQ was never at the club on the night of March 1.
They claim that Burna Boy was about to leave the club when he heard that some guys were about to attack Martins. A horrified Burna Boy then rushed back into the club to rescue Martins.
Burna according to them always held the footballer in high regard after he bought expensive tables at the singer’s shows in the past.
Burna Boy’s camp also denies that Burna Boy was at the club on Monday night.
