The DJs Association of Nigeria, DJAN, has lifted the ban on Nigerian pop star, Terry G, after he tendered an open apology to DJ Jimmy Jatt.
Terry G got himself into trouble with DJs for slapping DJ Jimmy Jatt’s protege, DJ Phriz, who was holding down for the respected and veteran DJ at a comedy show that held at the Shell Hall of Muson centre.
Following the incident, the Akpako master’s music was banned by DJAN, stopping all DJs around the country from playing his songs.
In a statement, DJAN said it has lifted the ban on the singer’s songs, hear them;
“The National Executives of the DJs Association of Nigeria, DJAN, humbly appreciates the support and cooperation of Nigeria DJs for full participation on the said subject.
We are most grateful for acknowledging the fact that ‘an injury to one is injury to all’, One Beat… One Voice.”
“Terry G has shown a very reasonable level of remorse and had apologized to all parties concerned including apologizing to the leadership of the Association at all levels.
After due consultations and deliberations, the Deejays Association of Nigeria hereby lifts the ‘EMBARGO’ on all songs of Terry G (including songs he featured in).”
People are however of the opinion that although this pardon by the DJs is a significant step for Terry G, the singer’s problems are self-imposed.
The Akpako master who was once the toast of the music industry has failed in recent times to produce a major hit and 2016 so far has left the singer a shadow of his boisterous self.
In 2015, he got signed to TGP Entertainment, and dropped the song ‘Totori’. That song, just like many others, failed to become a hit. Terry G’s last true hit song can be traced back to his 2013 collaboration with Timaya on ‘Malo Nogede’
