PELHAM GARDENS, Bronx — A man is accused of creating a pop-up strip club and throwing wild parties at a Bronx home.
"If it was up to me, I would do it every day because I'm a party animal. I love to party," Nebi Ayele said.
His neighbors say he is pretty well known for it. A look back at a bash earlier this year on a Facebook account shows the kind of partying going on at his residence along Felton Avenue.
Despite his neighbors' allegations, Ayele says that he does not charge people to come to house for parties, and that the party in question from earlier this year -- the one with naked women, dollar bills, lap dances and a man wearing a security shirt -- was in reality a small gathering of friends willing to help cover the cost for a Pay-Per-View fight.
"That was a $100 fight. I had my closest friends. I didn't charge to come in. They just chipped in," Ayele said
However, what is interesting is that on his Facebook account, a $5 entry to get in is clearly stated and it indicates that a five-star chef named "Sammy" will be cooking burgers for $5.
Additionally, NYPD will be at the door, and it is added that "you may need singles for other surprises."
When asked what he had to say about his neighbors that were chanting, "shame on you," Ayele said, "These are not my neighbors. I don't know anyone here."
Sen. Jeff Klein, who on Monday took part in a news conference in front of Ayele's residence, said this another example of residential rental sites not having enough oversight over properties they list on a daily basis.
