Video music director DJ Tee may have gotten himself into a lot of trouble if the allegations against him are true. Tolani Alvin Osungade has posted a picture of himself with a four-inch long gash on the left side of his face which he said was caused in an altercation with DJ Tee.
Now, TV producer Remi Ogunpitan has weighed in on the matter, revealing the attacked artist is his nephew, and that the altercation also included his 17-year-old niece and the artist’s sister, Bolaji.
He sent the following message through BlackBerry:
Big Time Music Video. Producer DJ Tee is a friend of mine. But right now I am enraged. Violence in our industry is unacceptable. He is also old enough to know that no matter the circumstances a real man ‘controls’ his emotions. So the reasons why he should use a bottle to slash the face of my nephew Tolani, leaving a 4inch long and flesh deep wound on the his face is beyond me. He also set his thugs on a 17 years old lady (Tolani’s sister, Bolaji) beating her up. It was a video shoot and these were teenagers. Am argument ensued and DJ Tee got mad and things got out of hand! If anyone has the contact for DJ Tee, please let me have it. He’s not picking his phone and maybe gone into hiding. Whatever happened this is unacceptable.
The young artist in question gave his own description of the entire affair, mailing it in to LIB. Read his (unedited) account of the incident:
My name is Tolani Alvin Osungade, and this is what really happened between Dj Tee and I…… Firstly, the video shoot was suppose to start @ 10am and I was there to support my friend “malcoholic” the owner of the video shoot. He (malcoholic) told to me invite friends (video girls and guys) which I did. The video shoot did not start early because it rained and the location was being cleaned. And due to the fact that the shoot didn’t start on time, people were having refreshments, guys were drinking (including dj tee and his crew). As this was going on, comments were going round that dj tee just insulted some girls I don’t know due to them asking for payment to be in the video and i also heard dj tee was going to call his own people to come and replace them.
Finally, my friends came by 5:30pm, and when they came and saw the set up they made their thoughts known to me that they don’t do videos for free but they were being insulted by some guys I don’t know myself but there was no fight and I did my best to calm them down and they decided to stay. My brother (Dolapo) came by 6pm with his friend, and Dolapo immediately made it clear to me that he didnt like the set up (the environment) as well and was going to leave in a bit. But I told him to stay just to support Malcoholic and he said “the only reason he’s staying was because of me”, and my invited friends also said the same thing because they were all tired of waiting and the video shoot had still not started since 1pm. Finally, the shoot started @ 7:30 and dj tee started calling people to come on set but there was little response due to people being tired from waiting all day then Dj started getting aggressive, his voice was getting louder, I was actually part of the first 5 to go on set and my brother (Dolapo) came along with me without his friend making us 6, few mins later, almost everybody joined. Some minutes later, I saw dolapo’s friend walking away and I asked her where she was going and she only pointed at dj tee and she said he just insulted her and she was leaving, while this was going on, dj tee was lashing out at the people that were not on set yet, in his words “get these bitches out, get these bitches downstairs”, Dolapo’s friend was leaving the set then dj tee asked her what was wrong?
Sincerely speaking, I didn’t hear her response but dj tee was speaking loud so I heard him say “bitch” and people went there to find out what the problem was. I didnt go with them because I was still on set and Kaffy (the dancer) was already coordinating us but I was looking towards that direction. Then I started hearing noise like a fight was going on and people were saying “dj tee leave him” and I also heard “Dolapo go” then I knew it was dj tee and my brother , then I went there. On getting there, the stairs was blocked and I could not see him and just wanted to get there to be sure he was ok and get him out because dj tee was saying “awon eruku mi da” in english “where are my thugs” “don’t let him go, he must not leave this place alive” because he claimed dolapo slapped him so he was saying “do you know who I am, how dare you” and he kept on ranting “I’ll kill you” “don’t let him go, he must not leave here alive” while dj tee was trying to get to him in person. My sister was begging him and telling him “dj tee, he’s my brother, please leave him” and to get his attention, she threw an empty fanta can drink at dj tee then he and his boys looked but paid her no attention.
I struggled my way out finally and I saw Dolapo practically running out and dj tee was chasing him and he instructed them to lock the gate and he then said to his boys “efo igo nibeyen, gbogbo igo ti eba ri, efo, ki e gun” in english “break bottles, find him and stab him” and his boys did as instructed and asked for permission to kill him (Dolapo) and dj tee said “yes, stab him”. Dj tee found him, tried to beat him but he was being held back, then he saw a bottle on the floor, picked up and broke it, dolapo’s female friend saw this and she went to plead with him and he pushed her into a gutter and looked away and was trying to go back to Dolapo with the broken bottle then I started pleading with him and he was shooting me dirty looks and he was saying “ti iwo oba kuro ni waju mi, ma te oju e mole” in english (get out of my way before I hurt you) .Still trying attack Dolapo, I still pleaded with him, then he stabbed my head and just walked away like it was nothing. Soaked in blood, I was still looking for Dolapo but didnt know he had been informed to run because dj tee had broken a bottle and was still looking for him. My sister saw me bleeding and she tried getting me out of the place with help of mr Dele (owner of d location).
As we we’re running out, dj tee and his boys were still coming after us with sticks and bottles and dj tee was still saying “kill him don’t let him go”. We got to the gate and it was locked so they caught up with us, seeing that I was already bleeding, I was ignored and dj tee and his boys then faced my sister (Bolaji) and beat her up. She was pleading and still getting beaten and threatened added that “if she is asked about the incident, she should say I fell on a bottle”Then the mr Dele (owner of the venue) ordered the gatement to open the gate because I had to be rushed to a hospital then we were let out. Dj tee and his boys vandalized a family friends car who came to support as well because he was also pleading with dj tee and his boys to let Dolapo go. I remember dj tee saying “I will kill you, I can do this and get away with it, you are too small to me, do you know who I am in this industry”…
In addition, I am not looking for cheap publicity neither am i trying to slander anybody’s name or image, I am from a very respectable home and background and this is known to all. This is just very painful because people are saying all sorts and nobody has an idea of what i’m going through, I’ve been scared for life whether Dj Tee gets punished for this crime or not, I am not after a pity party but the fact that Dj Tee thinks that he is untouchable and can get away with this is why my family is enraged and will make sure this ends here, and quoting what i wrote on my twitter page earlier “I’ve never been aggressive about anything in my life and neither do I cause trouble, @adetokunbodjtee, you took advantage of my youth, justice will be done” I’m deeply disappointed if this is how someone who calls himself a public figure acts or treats the public.
