DJ Jimmy Jatt Reveals Why DJAN Lifted Ban Placed On Terry G's Music

The Disc Jockey Association of Nigeria (DJAN) have lifted the ban placed on all Terry G's music. Recalled that the association issued an embargo on all Terry G's songs after he disrespected and slapped DJ Jimmy Jatt’s protege, DJ Phriz, at a comedy show that held at the Shell Hall of Muson centre in Lagos state.
Speaking on why the association lifted the ban, DJ Jimmy Jatt who says he has no issues with the controversial singer, said the lift came after he tendered an apology and went all out to convinced memebers of the association that he was indeed remorseful of his actions. What he said after the cut...
“There was not really any problem between Terry G and I. It was just the DJ association that placed a ban on his music but the ban has now been lifted," he told Punch.
“From our side, the initial reaction was that we demanded for a public apology and he has done that. Terry G went further to come to my office to apologise to the DJ and myself. He also went as far as meeting with some members of the association and I think that is what convinced them to lift the ban.
“To err is human and to forgive is divine, so it was just fair for them to lift the ban against him,” he added.
Recounting the experience, Jimmy Jatt said although he was at the show, he did not know that his boy received a slap till someone informed him.
“To be honest with you, I was on a table far from the stage. I thought he was exiting the stage, I did not know what transpired. It was someone that called my attention to the fact that he actually slapped the boy.
“When I heard, I got up and went to ask if my boy was slapped and he replied in an affirmative manner. I was shocked. I just told the boy to vacate the place. Luckily; there was a backup DJ, so he took over.
“The incident has sent a strong signal that there is a vibrant DJ association. Some other things have happened in the past that people have done and they got away with them but that would not happen again because an action has to be taken.
“For anybody that would not want an army of DJs to come after them, it would be in your interest not to look down on any DJ either established or up and coming. I am glad where the industry is today even though we have not got to the promised land yet. We have come a long way.
“This used to be a profession that people shunned but now parents are now proud to say that their children are disc jockeys. If you check the calibre of people coming in, it is enough to be proud about. There is still a lot to be done,” he added.
