      Excuse you!!! Is that a normal hug? How can a man hug another man with legs thrown around him??? They should get him arrested sef

      Forget gender Ruby. The hug looked to me like an attack, so I can kinda understand the reaction.

      Ruby, that’s not my point! He didn’t have to kick his head! His body guards already came to take him away. The dude was probably foolishly excited, some people are ridiculously star struck; still don’t get why but that’s that. I can’t get over the way DJ Arafat reacted; so aggressive and unnecessary.

    A violent over reaction.
    Kilode? Stomping the guy like a fucking cockroach. I don’t think it’s a fair treatment for any human being talk less a fan.

    So a normal person jumped up to hug a mad man? O di nma. In my opinion both of them are crazy.. I have always said that peoples’ hair styles go a long way to tell about their personalities. I wish I had funding to prove this.

      Wetting myself! This has to be the funniest comment I’ve read all day. Apply for funding. I can imagine how the topic of your thesis would read!

    DJ Arafat is a punk for doing that … that was very unnecessary and rather too violent

  16. Ziggey

    March 9, 2016 at 2:22 pm

    Would he had done that if the fan was female …. good looking with a bod to die for ? Arrogance personified

    pushing the guy back should have been enough even IF he was gay. Arafat (i wonder what kind of name that is) shouldnt have taken it any further than pushing him away

    Do you know how stupid you sound?
    No human being deserves that kind of treatment, SIMPLE!! Gracie thank you for making sense, all he had to do was push him away. How can you prove he was gay? Cos he was excited enough to jump on the musician?

  26. Uber bella

    Chai. That was too much now. What if the guy suffers a concussion? That was a bad kick in the head. The guy is just an excited fan that couldn’t control his excitement.

    His reaction was obviously on impulse. I can tell he meant well when he hugged the fan back. You weren’t on the stage with him, you don’t know what he felt, or what went through his mind, and you definitely shouldn’t judge him. He found himself in an uncomfortable and rather disgusting situation and he handled it the way he could. Blame it on impulse.

    The point is this, the guy was enjoying DJ arafat excessively, he don’t even know when did that, and he never new that he will be treated that way. Anyway, the deed has been done but I believe that DJ Arafat is a frustrated celebrity, useless, illiterate, uncivilised bastard and a street tout with his low level bodyguards. Anybody that support DJ arafat, must be a rejected fellow from God. The person is cursed from birth. Even the look of that so called DJ. He looks un presentable. Infact, I hate him with passion.

    He didn’t have to be that aggressive, what if the guy had died or sustained injuries. But again i can imagine, not everyone likes all that hugs and all…

    IMPULSE is the word. Who can blame him in the heat of it? All we can do after is judge but non of us knew what was going down in his mind. Besides, the impact was minimal.
