NIKKI Z in response to the Malicious and Fictitious article written on another website
This is in response to the Malicious and Fictitious article written on a Dancehall/Reggae website in regards to an incident that took place on May 16th 2009. I currently am the Entertainment Director at Clipper's II and trendy new Hot Spot in Queens and was giving the Hosting Duties for a Show Entitled "It's It's It's Serani" The show was scheduled to begin 1am but due to the late entry of the crowd, it was running extremely late. From about 1:30 till a little past 3am I was Hosting on the mic while Hell Razor was selecting. At this time a young lady who I now understand is named Sami came on the stage and proceeded to start to play music, after stating something to Hell Razor he then cam e and took the Microphone that was in my hand and began to MC while she in turn selected. This was not a problem... After 5-10 minutes proceeded I was approached by people affiliated with show and that the artist was ready and to call up an artist Name Rushaun who was to perform before Serani. I asked if the artist was sure he was ready and if the music was lined up and they responded with yes "They are Ready now" as the shows host it is my duty to comply with what I am being told in regards to the show program. So at that time I had a second mic that Yard Vibes Sound provided to me and began to start the show. At this point no words were exchanged between I and Sami but after I started the program Sami then attempted to snatch the mic very aggressively out of my hand. Out of shock my first reaction was to push her off of my hand and she then fell back. Security among others then intervened and escorted her off of the stage very abruptly. The show began without another interruption, Sami even entered back on stage to retrieve her things and once again we passed each other but without a word exchange or problem. The article stated security prevented her from coming back... but yet she did!... The article stated I took away "Her" mic.... she never had a mic Hell Razor did! The article quoted that I told security to let her go... I am the Entertainment Director at this new hot spot, if I wanted that to happen it would have. I am constantly villianized no matter what the situation is and most times I remain silent and except the hand that is being dealt to me but this time I refuse. If as a DJ you feel your time is cut short then talk to me as a person much less a woman, what you won't do is put your hands on me as if you feel I am someone to push over. If you want proper play time sorted out, show up for the event on time! Clubs have to close at 4am in Queens. How can you expect to get full play time if you start after 3am the people paid to see Serani it was his name on the flyer and he the patrons paid for. You were not on the flyer or advertisement so as a bonus play early... play Prime time even 2am 2:30 but to expect to get full time during showtime is ludicrous and unreasonable. Right now I represent my family I represent Irie Jam 93.5 I represent Busy Radio in CT I represent Road Block Radio and I represent Caribbean Hot 30 (Which air on 16 radio Stations in the Caribbean) What I don't represent is childishness, foolishness, hype and friggery! This was an attempt in my opinion by someone who felt they had something to prove verses someone who came to cater to patrons. But all they proved is that the DIVA SHALL NOT BE MOVED!!! I have arrived NYC and I am not going anywhere!!
