Bikwa expressed that he felt remorseful about his actions and tried to reach out to Boity to take accountability for his doings but his efforts were in vain. He further elaborated on his feelings saying:
"It's not like I literally wanted to do something to Boity. I mean Boity ... like, why would I do that to her? ... I have been crying the whole time ... I want to relax but at the same time I want to be there for Boity. I need to make sure she's safe ... please make sure that she's fine. I am panicking, I can't even sleep ... I am not that person, I am not violent."

In a statement released on Instagram, Bujy expressed that he was deeply saddened to be labelled as an abuser considering he is an advocate against GBV. So he took the liberty to tell his side of what happened that night.
ZAlebs reports he threw the bottle out of frustration as Boity was pestering him. When retelling the events, Bujy said:
"I was verbally abused and told that my surname has no relation to who I am and because of that, that is why my career is going nowhere in terms of growth, in fact, "what is it that I do in the media industry because I am actually nothing."
Bujy further told TimesLIVE that a major influencing factor in the escalation of the fight was alcohol. He said:
"Everybody was drunk at that time. I literally lost my temper because I felt like she was so unfair to me, the stuff she was saying to me on that table. [But] I honestly shouldn't have done that."
