The Deejays Association of Nigeria (DJAN), has ordered all Nigerian Disc Jockeys to stop playing all of Terry G’s songs until further notice.
This is a fall out of the hot slap Terry G to the DJ under the tutelage of respected jockey, DJ Jimmy Jatt over the weekend.
It happened on Sunday night at the first edition of ‘D’GOOD, D’BASH & D’FUNNY’ a concert by comedian Hammed Basheer popularly known as Bash which held at Shell Hall, Muson Centre, Lagos.
According to reports, Terry G overstayed his time, and even said if he’s not allowed to finish his performance, he’ll cause trouble. Suddenly, the DJ played Olamide's song and Terry went ballistic. He crossed over, gave the young DJ a slap that made him see stars, smashed the microphone on the stage and left’
DJ Phreez who happens to be a trainee DJ under Dj Jimmy Jatt was the one playing and was unlucky to have been at the receiving end of the ‘hot’ slap.
Below is the official statement from DJAN:

EMBARGO ON ALL TERRY G’s SONGS
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.
