Even as the Afrobeats to the world movement gathers more speed, it’s met with some challenges as DJ Neptune tackles a London club for racial profiling. More on this below.
Renowned disc jockey DJ Neptune has called out a London club, Proud Late London, on claims of racial profiling.
The irate DJ had taken to his Twitter account to let lose on how he was feeling with a lengthy thread posted on the 16th of July.
According to the DJ who’s an Afrobeats powerhouse, the club’s management had frustrated plans for his 15th year anniversary party which was slated to hold within the club and had restricted some guests and DJs from gaining entrance as a result of their appearance.
Neptune also mentioned that while the club’s capacity was 750 and his party was set to cater to a crowd of over 500, the management had stated that they had oversold tickets.
Some of the restricted members of DJ Neptune’s party included a fellow DJ, Rachel Anson who hosted Burna Boy’s Love Damini launch party. The DJ also narrated her ordeal stating that the club management made her miss her set for no reason.
Neptune’s call out has since garnered comments of solidarity which corroborate his claims of racism in London’s hospitality sector. Meanwhile the management of Proud Late London is yet to address DJ Neptune’s claims.
