Day after Dj Jimmy Jatt said he demand a public apology from Terry G for slapping his boy at Comedian Bash's show in Lagos (read here), the Deejays Association of Nigeria (DJAN), has placed an embargo an all Terry G's songs.
Although it not clear if the well respected Disc Jockey called for the directive, a statement by the association revealed that it's has to do with the singer slapping Jimmy Jatt's boy DJ Phreez on Sunday.

The statement issued by the association and signed by its national secretary, Sebastian Ikpoza (DJ Desert Storm) ordered all Nigerian Disc Jockeys to stop playing all of Terry G’s songs until further notice.

Read the full statement below: 


All Nigerian DJs in Nigeria,
All Nigerian DJs in Diaspora,
All Radio DJs, VDJs & OAPs,
All Club, Lounge, Event Centers,Bars etc,
All Street DJs,
Music Promoters,
Event Planners,
The General Public.


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.
