Few days ago, it was on news how Singer Terry G physically abused a DJ during his performance at a Lagos Show.
As Terry was called upon to perform on stage, he came with his usual stage craft and his bell as everyone was happy to be dancing to his song. Things went bad when it was time for him to leave the stage but he shut the DJ up and told him to play him another song which he obeyed but when he was taking too much time on stage, the DJ who happens to be one of DJ Jimmy Jatts boys changed the song and Terry got angry. Thinking he was going off stage, he walked up to the DJ and gave him a very hot slap.
His action was greatly criticized as everyone condemned him. This made DJ Jimmy Jatt angry as he stood up from the audience, walked up to stage and told his boys to pack up all the equipment as they left the show. Another DJ had to round up the show.
Following this action the Association of Nigerian DJs have placed embargo on his songs till further notice, this was seen in a statement that has been passed around. read below

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 injuries on his face; right in front of the Legendary Dj Jimmy Jatt.
This type of violence and physical abuse is unacceptable.
Although planned legal actions are on the way, 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, bars, radios and every other spot where it is the duty of a DJ to play music Nationwide.
