According to reports by the NET and PM News, ‘Ginjah Master’, Terry G, real name Gabriel Amanyi is currently embroiled in a controversy about an alleged brawl between the ‘Run Mad’ crooner and his crew on one hand, and the staff of The Treasures Exclusive Garden in the Iju area (a border two between Lagos and Ogun states) on the other hand.
The physical altercation which allegedly took place on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, according to the reports, broke out when one of Terry G’s boys jumped into the bar’s swimming pool without paying.
‘One of the hangout’s attendants told the boy to come out of the pool but he refused. When he was dragged out, his colleagues reportedly reacted with violence. The ensuing fight saw Terry G raining blows on the hotel manager. His boys started beating the security guards, while Terry G himself slapped the hotel manager who was trying to calm him down,’ said a source of PM News.
The security man of the hotel according to NET confirmed that the incident happened and that the singer was around when it happened. ‘I was not around when it happened, and from what I heard, the fight happened, but I can’t tell you if Terry G slapped the manager or not,’ he reportedly said, while also confirming that Terry G is a regular visitor.
Terry G’s Personal Assistant, is also reported to have said; ‘Terry G never slapped or punched anyone. There was a little fight, but he didn’t hit anybody. He tried settling the issue and hurriedly left the place to avoid negative reports yet that didn’t stop the press from reporting something else,’ and the singer/producer himself has also released a statement refuting reports of him being involved in the fight. ‘Right now, I am not happy at the reports circulating on social media. Yes I do crazy hit songs, yes I say I’m crazy, yes I act crazy in my videos , I do all that for the money. In my saying, it’s better to be a mad man making money than a handsome nuisance. Why on earth at this point of my career will I be involved in such? I am not writing to convince anyone. Is it wrong for me to settle a misunderstanding between two parties without waking up in the morning to see such head-lies and (not headlines)? Will I at this point swim at a public hotel without paying?
