Celebrity DJ, Jimmy Jatt has asked Nigerian artiste, Terry G to apologize for slapping his protege, DJ Phriz who was holding the table down for him at Comedian Bash’s comedy show at the Muson Centre.
Speaking with THE NET on the incident, Jimmy Jatt said, ”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 organisers 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.
”All of a sudden, Terry G walked straight to the DJ and gave him the most dazzling of slaps, the boy was dazed. Then he left the venue immediately because I went back stage immediately to try and talk to him. I was pissed and was going to shut down the performance for the night but I thought of it again because it wasn’t the organisers fault’.
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’.
