UPDATE: According to a rep of Burna Boy who spoke to Pulse, the singer and AKA won the Best Collaboration at the 2015 All Africa Music Awards, and proceeded to celebrate the milestone at G12 Seaside Lounge.

Around 4.30 am both stars and their crew left the lounge en route Chevy View Estate. Burna Boy and AKA rode in a Ford Edge automobile with tinted windows, and the rest of the crew including Joey who bears a striking resemblance to Burna Boy, and Moses, another crew member, travelled in a Coupe Lexus. Moses drove the car.

Further explaining the rep said, Midway through the journey home, a Mercedes Benz C300 containing a number of young men (who had also partied at G12) gained on the vehicles, with the driver flashing his lights and attempting to join Burna Boy convoy. His attention was focused on the Coupe Lexus, which had Joey in it. On reaching the Chevron Road, the Mercedes Benz C300 tried to overtake the Coupe Lexus, and a crash happened.

According to the rep, Joey immediately left the Lexus and moved over to the Ford Edge to drive Burna Boy and AKA home, while Moses confronted the driver of the C300.  An altercation occurred with heated exchanges.

“A taser was used in the encounter, and Moses grabs the keys of the Mercedes Benz. The keys were later returned after intervention by the Police.” The rep said.

Burna Boy is said to be unaware of the crash and only got wind of it as the story circulated on the internet.

The owner of the C300 had earlier accused Burna Boy and South African rapper, AKA, of intentionally bashing his car this morning.

The man who chose to withhold his name, shared a story on social media, with photos of his car and injuries sustained from the altercation. That story has gone viral.

According to the victim: "This morning around the 4:30am, I was heading back from G12 Bar, Oniru with my friend that was celebrating his bday when Burna boy and his crew which included AKA and some other unknown artistes purposely hit my car with his Coupe Lexus convertible car in front of Chevy View Estate, Chevron, Lekki.

"After they hit my car, I tried to talk to him and the other artiste driving the car said and I quote ' why would you overtake us'

"I immediately asked if that was why he hit my car and he started insulting me verbally. Burnaboy immediately ran out of the car with AKA and entered the other edge car they were driving and made it into Chevy View since we were right outside the gate already.

"The other guy that waited, brought out a defibrillator and used it on both me and my friends. there are 2 of them left in the vehicle so the other guy made way into my car and removed my Mercedes Benz C300's car keys and drove away with it in the Lexus Convertible car and I chased him. I was right in front of the Lexus car when this guy ran me over and made way into Chevy view and left me with bruised palm and foot. I have pictures to back up my story.

"He didn’t return with my car keys until some police men guarding chevron interfered and eventually they both went away after terrorizing me and my friends.

"I dont want them to fix my car, but I need the whole world to know what injustice was done to me and my friends by Burnaboy and AKA and they ran away like it meant nothing!"
