Popular Video Director DJ TEE known for videos like Dbanj’s Tongolo and more recently Hakym The Dream’s “Lamba”, Olamide’s “Omo toh Shan” to mention a few is reported to have stabbed an upcoming artist on the set of a video which he was directing yesterday. His reason for this dastard and inhumane act was that the victim was disturbing his set.
Our sources tell us that The victim, Tolani, had gone to the venue of the video shoot at Daily Times agindingbi ,ikeja with his siblings and friends to give solidarity support to another upcoming artiste Malcolm.
At some point during the shoot, DJ TEE asked people who weren’t going to appear in the video to leave the shooting area. One of the well-wishers a girl who wished to appear in the video remained. Instead of politely asking her to leave the area, Dj Tee rudely screamed at her to GET-OUT,and even resorted to calling her names like
b***h amongst other things.
Another friend of Macolm, Dolapo who was on the set interfered by peacefully telling DJ TEE to relax and also that it wasn’t necessary to shout at a lady in the manner which he did. This infuriated DJ TEE even more and the next thing he did was slap Dolapo, but it didn’t end there. DJ TEE and his boys then started beating the boy up.
Dolapo’s kid sister Bolaji(17 years old) watched helplessly as they beat her brother to pulp, and could only scream and appeal to DJ TEE to stop. She screamed continuously: “He is my brother!!!”.
All Bolaji’s appeal fell on deaf ears. Worse still, DJ TEE instructed his boys to start beating her too. Tolani, Dolapo’s brother then stepped in to stop the brawl, but alas! all hell broke loose as DJ TEE broke a bottle and approached Dolapo with it. Tolani tried to shield his brother but got stabbed in the face, after which DJ TEE and his boys threw Tolani, his siblings and friends out of the studio and went ahead with the video shoot.
The stabbed boy now is receiving treatment at the ikeja medical center behind Alade market at Allen.
Reports have it that Dj Tee has anger management issues and often displays very erratic behavior. He is said to be a former soldier and holds a black belt in Karate and
this perhaps, explains his unnecessarily violent behavior from time to time.
This story is indeed very disheartening. Even if the teenagers in question had angered him, violence is never an option,where civilized people are concerned. We have tried to reach DJ TEE on his side of the story. We will keep you posted as more details come to light.
The scarred face of the victim!
