Oritsefemi Majemite Ekele, better known by his stage name as Oritsefemi has debunked media reports that he was issued a quit notice by his landlord from his Lekki home. The report claimed that the singer was facing ejection from the said apartment and that his landlord had threatened to throw him out from his property after he had failed to pay the rent which was due some months ago.
Also, the report alleged that the self-acclaimed Musical Taliban who was out of the country for a while, had since returned but was avoiding the landlord who had vowed to effect the quit notice by the end of May if the singer failed to pay his rent.
Recall that in 2014, at the height of his fame, Oritsefemi announced to the public that he had moved into a mansion in the posh Lekki area of Lagos.
Refuting the claim, the performer who is best known for his remake of Fela Kuti’s “Double Wahala” song, told the Punch that he is far from broke.
“There is no iota of truth in the story and I was never threatened with ejection letter from my landlord. I don’t know where the story emanated from but it is a blatant lie.
“I went for my Europe tour and I returned about a week ago only to see this news all over blogs. I toured about 13 countries. I am inside my house as we speak on the phone. My landlord and I are like 5 and 6, we are very close.
“The news is totally false. I don’t have any issues with my landlord, in fact, he was surprised that I had not called him in a while and I told him I went for my Europe tour. The man is a high ranking police officer.
“I just got back from my tour and I have enough money, I cannot be broke. I cannot be unfortunate to be that broke,” he stated.
