Badest Guy Terry G, Hotel Manager Exchange Blows In public
Terry G, has again been involved in a
messy fight at a hangout in his Iju
The fight, which later resulted in a free-
for-all, took place at the Treasures
Exclusive Garden, off Bola Tinubu Road,
Iju, Lagos at about 6p.m. Wednesday.
A source told P.M.NEWS that Terry G
and his boys stormed the hotel to relax
but things later turned awry between
some staff of the hangout and the music
star with his crew.
According to the source, when Terry G
arrived the club, one of his boys
forcefully jumped into the swimming pool
One of the hangoutâ€™s attendants asked
the boy to come out of the pool but he
refused. When he was dragged out, his
colleagues reportedly reacted with
violence. The ensuing free for all, the
source said, saw Terry G raining blows
on the hotel manager.
â€œWhen Terry G and his crew arrived the
hotel around 6p.m., one of his boys just
jumped into the pool without paying. The
security guard called him to come out
but he refused. Even the owner of the
hotel, Mr. George Obot, shouted at him
but he refused. Terry G further messed
up the whole issue when he started
abusing Mr. Obot, telling the man what
did he think he has and all sort of
things,â€ the source narrated.
He continued: â€œHis boys started beating
the security guards, while Terry G
himself slapped the hotel manager who
was trying to calm him down.â€
Mr. Obot, the owner of Treasures
Exclusive Garden, in a phone chat with
our correspondent, confirmed the
incident. He said that he was
disappointed in Terry G who came and
messed up his place.
Obot said he wouldnâ€™t want to comment
further since he was still assessing the
matter and would get back to
A patron of Treasures, who claimed he
witnessed the incident, however had a
slightly different story to tell.
The patron, who did not want his name
mentioned for fear of reprisal from the
relaxation centreâ€™s management, said
when Terry G and two others arrived
the club, they hurriedly undressed and
were about to jump into the swimming
pool when the club manager told them
that they couldnâ€™t.
The ensuing noise from the altercation
between the manager and Terry Gâ€™s
crew brought the proprietor to the
scene. The proprietor, too, insisted that
it was inappropriate for the singer to
dive into the pool. When Terry G stuck
to his guns, the proprietor, the source
said, threw a punch at him. Then bedlam
When P.M.NEWS contacted Terry G, it
was his manager who picked the call.
While confirming the brawl between his
principalâ€™s crew and some staff of the
hotel, he however denied the claim that
Terry G physically assaulted anyone
â€œIt is not true. Terry G witnessed the
whole scenario but never engaged
anyone in a fight. When the whole issue
happened and it was getting messy, he
just walked away from the place since
he was aware of his celebrity status,â€
Terry Gâ€™s manager said.
Felix Alonge, the club supervisor, said
yesterday was not the first time Terry
G would come to the hangout and
rupture its peace.
â€œAnytime Terry G comes to this place,
he will surely cause trouble,â€ Alonge
When P.M.NEWS visited the resort this
morning, Mr. Obot was not there. He
was said to have gone to the Iju Ishaga
â€˜Red Houseâ€™ Police Station.
Though the club manager declined to
speak on developments on the matter, a
staff said Terry Gâ€™s mother had been
invited to the police station, presumably
to vouch for her sonâ€™s civility should he
decide to visit the club in future.
Terry G has earned notoriety over his
uncivil behaviour. Sometime ago, he was
reportedly engaged in a public brawl
with fellow musician, Side One, in Benin
