News of the incident was shared by Instagram blogger Tunde Ednut, alongside pictures showing all the contents of the mansion including appliances burnt to the ground.
The artist confirmed the sad occurrence in a recent update on his Instagram story. Orezi shared that he was in the middle of a meeting in Lagos last night when he received a distressing call from his neighbor, crossdresser Bobrisky, informing him of the raging inferno at his N30OM mansion.
Initially dismissing it as a jest, he said he raced back to his house, only to be confronted with a scene that left him shattered.

“Last night was really hectic Still trying to figure out and wrap my head around all that happened Am sitting here asking my self why me God is indeed merciful Can’t thank God enough”.
He posted videos and photos showcasing the extensive damage inflicted by the fire on his multi-million naira properties.
The footage captured the singer trying to salvage the remains of his once-grand home, now reduced to ashes.
The cause of the fire has not yet been communicated publicly, however, no life was lost, but his properties are all gone.

@Genuisdr: “Fire safety is very important but we don’t take it serious in this country. In fact, it should be part of our secondary school curriculum. It’s better than many of the useless subjects been taught in secondary school. Many of these things are avoidable if only we take fire safety serious and we know exactly how to go about it👌”.
