2face Idibia’s Manager, Efe Omorogbe, has confirmed that fire razed down his office, ‘Now Musik’, located at Beckley Estate, Abule Taylor bus stop, Abule Egba, Lagos state on Saturday.
According to the producer, the inferno began at about 7pm and lasted till 11pm.
In a chat with DAILYPOST on Tuesday, he described the incident as unfortunate, noting that he lost ‘so much’ to the fire. He is, however, thankful to God that no life was lost.
He said, “Yes, it is true we had a fire incident that was instigated by power which led to a spark in our electrical appliances. Unfortunately, there was nobody around to contain it.
“We are thankful there were no casualties, nobody was hurt. It was majorly a studio, nobody lived there.
“Equipment, hard drives, data, even the back up files were all lost. But you know, these things are not as important as human lives so at the end of the day, we are thankful we didn’t record any casualty, “he noted.
Speaking further, Omorogbe said, “It is also a lesson that we need to be a lot more proactive with such occurrences. I didn’t have any fire extinguisher in there, so even if someone was there, it still would have been a challenge containing it.
“We will take a learning and try as much as possible to prepare for those kind of eventualities going forward.”
Omorogbe added that the fire was put out by officials of the state fire service, although, they arrived at the scene late.
“It was a little late though because the time the officials came in, the entire building had been razed down completely.
“They contained it notwithstanding, because there was also a possibility of the fire spreading to other buildings, ” the manager told DAILY POST.
