2016 is surely a year of amusement in the industry with several beefs ruling the entertainment industry. While we are still trying to lay behind the beef between YBNL act, Olamide and Mavin boss, Don Jazzy which took centre stage in the beginning of the year and several which have come by from song stealing to artistes and record label issues and the latest being the beef between Nigeria’s leading Disc Jockey, Jimmy Jatt and Singer Terry-G.
Over the weekend at the Muson Centre, venue for ‘D’Good, D’Bash & D’Funny’ concert, Terry G slapped DJ Jimmy Jatt’s protégé, DJ Phriz, who was holding the table down for him.
According to reports, the crowd was turned off due to his misbehaviour on stage, and efforts to get him off stage proved abortive which made the show organisers ask the DJ to cut off his music.
“I think it was a reaction of an unruly artiste. The DJ has been coordinating the performances without issues. Terry G wasn’t even billed to perform. He called the organiser and begged to perform then they gave him a time frame and he used more than his time. The organizers used their voice-over guy to call him from the backstage that his time was over and he said if he hears the voice he’ll cause trouble. Then he went on to perform about three more songs. He was messing up and people were leaving while he was performing. The organisers were losing crowd and they went to tell the DJ to stop playing his songs so Terry G can get off the stage.
But he didn’t leave the stage – he continued performing and making music with his bell and he wasn’t leaving still, so they went back to the DJ and told him to play another artiste’s song, and my boy obliged,” Jimmy Jatt said.
When asked if he’ll press charges against Terry G, he said: “I personally will request a public apology from him just so we have a gentleman’s agreement, because I feel I was the one slapped. Apart from that, if it wasn’t my boy involved and an artiste slaps a DJ in my presence, I’ll stand up for the DJ’”.
However, few hours after the issue dragged, Terry G finally pen down a public apology via his Instagram page to both DJ Jimmy Jatt and his protégé DJ Phriz.
