Deejay’s Association lifts ban on Terry G

By Ahmed Boulor


Controversial singer Terry G has had a ban placed on him by the Deejays Association of Nigeria (DJAN) lifted for slapping a DJ under the tutelage of DJ Jimmy Jatt at a show staged at the Muson Centre recently.

The decision was made known after the association issued a statement to that effect earlier on today which was posted on the Instagram page of the ‘Free Madness’ crooner.

The text from the letter issued by DJAN reads thus;

“The National Executives of the DJs Association of Nigeria (DJAN) humbly appreciate the support and coorperation of Nigeria DJs for full participation on said subject, we are most grateful for acknowledging the fact that ‘an injury to one is injury to all’, One Beat… One Voice.

“Terry G has shown a very reasonable level of remorse and had apologized to all parties concerned including apologizing to the leadership of the Association at all levels.

“After due consultations and deliberations, the Deejays Association of Nigeria hereby lifts the ‘EMBARGO’ on all songs of Terry G (including songs he featured in). Thank you.” The statement by DJAN read in full.

Recalling the incident which occurred on the 5th of June at the first edition of ‘D’GOOD, D’BASH & D’FUNNY’- a concert by comedian Hammed Basheer popularly known as Bash, Terry G who was performing on stage reportedly handed a dirty slap to DJ Phreeze on the console for not giving him enough time to perform on stage.

Terry G later regretted his actions and penned an apology on his Instagram page saying without the efforts of well-meaning Dj’s in Nigeria, his career would have been nothing but nonsense.

“It’s so painful how things play out these days hearing from just one side. Am not here to paint myself good or perfect, am only human and have feelings. Looking back to how this journey of my career started, it’s been one issue or the other. The negative ones fly like wild fire while the positive ones are not as wild as the negative stories but all the same God has been faithful.

“I Terry G will be the last person to ruin a colleague’s event intentionally or want to hurt anybody. Good or bad I have contributed negatively or positively to the Nigerian music industry. My sincere apologies to Nigerians number one DJ @djjimmyjatt for you have been a good leader in the Nigerian entertainment Industry.

“I also extend my apologies to Dj Phreez for my actions; it was due to miscommunication and my sincere apologies to the Dj’s Association of Nigeria without you guys, my music will be a total nonsense.” Terry G posted on his Instagram page at the time.
