The attack on Nigerian musicians doesn’t seem to be slowing down, as yet another artiste  - Adeniyi Ariyo better known Flex, one-half of the rap duo El-Phlex was recently shot in Lagos.

Sources told NET that Flex and his partner Sean, a friend Tizze and their manager Olaitan Matti had left Shoprite Lekki and were heading towards Koko Lounge in Yaba for a show hosted by stand-up comic Buchi.

Driving along the Magodo area on the Lagos–Ibadan expressway at about 8:30PM, they parked by the Zenith Bank building to pick up a friend, when unidentified armed men approached the vehicle.

‘The guy came to the other side of the car and pointed the gun at Flex. Before we could say anything, we heard a gunshot and we all went down in the car’, the duo’s manager Olaitan Matti told NET.

‘It was only after the robbers had carted away their mobile phones and other valuables that we noticed Flex had been shot’.

The trio drove to the Lagoon Hospital, Ikeja where they admitted and treated. They have now been discharged.

El-Phlex, with Adeniyi Ariyo (Flex) and Oluwaseun Ariyo (Sean), have been on the music scene for a while, and released their first single ‘Gbetiwa’ in year 2010.
