EMBARGO ON ALL TERRY G’s SONGS
It is with due respect that we hereby call on your solidarity to the aforementioned situation. The Deejays Association of Nigeria (DJAN) through the disciplinary committee had over the years intervened on issues affecting our members and Musicians cum Artistes whenever our Rights are trampled upon and Mr Gabriel Oche Amanyi aka Terry G have been given verbal warning on several occasions in recent times.
On Sunday the 5th of June 2016 at the Muson Center, Lagos State, Nigeria, a music/comedy show held and Terry G was not among the artiste billed to perform, he begged the organizers until he was told to perform for seven minutes, but he got on stage already tipsy and after about 18 minutes on stage insulting everyone, the organizers asked the DJ to play a different song by another artist, no sooner had the song began to play that Terry G descended on the DJ who was the head DJ of Jatt Incorporated. Beyond assault, The DJ sustained various degree of injury on his face, right in front of the Legendary Dj Jimmy Jatt.
This type of violence and physical abuse is unacceptable.
However, legal actions are on the way but after wide consultations and deliberations, the Deejays Association of Nigeria hereby place an ‘EMBARGO’ on all songs of Terry G, audio and video (including songs he featured in) indefinitely in all events, lounges, bar, radio and every other spot where it is the duty of a DJ to play music Nationwide.
