POPULAR dancer Beverly Sibanda and her manager Harpers Mapimhidze were left nursing injuries after they were assaulted by a bouncer at Peter Moyo’s show at a local bar Saturday night.
They have since lodged a complaint with a police after they were reportedly assaulted by the security personnel identified as Romeo who was manning the gate at Peter’s show.
Bev told H-Metro yesterday that a misunderstanding started after Romeo had his request to escort Bev and her team into the bar turned down.
She said there was an exchange of words in the process resulting in Romeo assaulting her.
“We arrived at the show with my group and he (Romeo) requested to escort me into the venue which I declined.
“He then insulted me and I responded and he then assaulted me. My manager tried to intervene and he head-butted him leaving him injured.
“We had no option but to go and report to the police and seek medical attention for Harpers,” said Bev.
Bev said she went to the show to support Peter as she usually does when she is around.
“I went there to support a fellow artiste Peter Moyo and to my surprise there was someone who had issues with me,” she said.
Harpers said he had to be rushed to hospital since he was nose bleeding and left with a swollen face.
“It’s true it happened and we lodged a complaint with the police who are handling the matter. We don’t know his issues.
“Bev refused to entertain him and when I intervened he started assaulting us, I had to sacrifice myself when he attacked Bev and turned on me,” said Harpers.
