Weeks after Akpako master Terry-G’s song was banned by the association of DJ’s after his disrespectful act on DJ Phreez by subjecting the budding disc jockey and protégé of turntable guru, Jimmy Jatt, to a slap during his performance, the association has reversed the ban.
The association said Terry G met all the conditions of righting his wrongs, a reason it announced the lifting of the ban.
‘The National Executives of the DJs Association of Nigeria (DJAN) humbly appreciate the support and cooperation 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,’ a statement from the body reads.
‘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 further read.
