2nd September, 2010
As many home folks and Nigerians in the United Kingdom rocked the Bank Holiday Monday inÂ Queenâ€™s land especially the NottingHill Carnivalâ€™s Naija Corner on Monday, 30 August, a majorÂ concert, Carnival Music Festival 2010 at The Troxy in London that was to have Terry G among aÂ host of other Nigerian star artistes, was nearly marred with the absence of the leader of theÂ House of Ginjah.
It was gathered that the eccentric but talented music producer was stranded here in Nigeria asÂ he could not get his travel documents from the British High Commission in Lagos on time toÂ board the available flight to the concert. Sensing that he would not be able to make it to theÂ show, Terry G had to send an early apology to already disappointed fans over there.
According to reports, Terry G, whose Gbagaun mix tape by DJ Jamjam was a hit among music loversÂ in London, had his passport and visa delayed while others submitted-his PA and manager-Â collected theirs.
â€œI feel so bad, I wonâ€™t be seeing my fans and this means so much to me. Everyone in the houseÂ is working so hard to put things in place, even if not for tonight but a compensation for allÂ my peeps out there. I am not blaming the show organisers for this, I believe thatâ€™s how GodÂ wants it,â€ Terry G was reported to have said.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian corner at the annual Nottinghill Carnival 2010 was a star studded one,Â packed with thousands of revelers from far and wide. There were live performances from UK andÂ Nigeria-based artistes and top of the bill were 9ice, Banky W and JJC, while others whoÂ performed there include Femi, Jaywon, DJ Jimmy Jatt and DJ Abass
