- DJ Tira allegedly got smacked with a bottle during his gig at the University of Venda
- The Mzansi artist has expressed how he has been left questioning his safety
- The MEC of Arts and Culture from Polokwane has assured Tira that the matter will be dealt with
Truth be told, fame and fortune ain’t just big parties and popularity. Poor DJ Tira was allegedly hit by a glass bottle on stage this past weekend.
DJ Tira is at the top of his game. Not only is he a super popular artist, he is a lit producer and artist manager too.
Briefly.co.za learnt that DJ Tira took to social media to explain what had happened and how shocked he was that something like this had happened to him.
Tira suffered a rather nasty cut to his forehead and eye which has left him questioning his safety.
Talking to TshisaLIVE, DJ Tira explained how the performance went from lit to terrifying in mere seconds. Never in Tira’s entire career did he think that he would have to fear going on stage.
As extra as it sounds, if the bottle had hit Tira hard enough it could have caused irreversible damage.
The university's SRC president and event organiser, Tsunzukani Hakamela, has denied that Tira was hit by a bottle and has instead claimed that Tira’s injury was sustained by “music equipment while he was trying to shield himself”.
Tira decided to let authorities deal with the matter and chose not to open a case. The MEC of Arts and Culture from Polokwane has assured Tira that they will do whatever it takes to ensure that the culprits are found.
