Najib’s son allegedly forced guest DJ to stop performing so he could take the deck instead
The internet exploded with rage yesterday after news that PM Najib’s son forced a popular DJ out of the deck in Zouk Singapore so he can play himself.
The DJ, Fadi of Egyptian trance duo Aly & Fila was allegedly forced to end his performance early, as Ashman Najib, the son of Prime Minister Dato Seri Najib Razak, had requested that Fadi’s set to be ended early despite not being in the performer’s bill that night.
Fadi, a highly respected figure in the trance community, caused an uproar when he announced that he “won’t play for Zouk anymore”. A recording of his announcement in the club, right before he played his last track, was posted online and has seen been viral among the clubbing community.

In the video, Fadi said, “It seems that Zouk here wants someone else to play. Not only because of that, because apparently he’s the son of a prime minister.
Thank you so much, enjoy my last track. I’ll see you somewhere in the future. Not in Zouk anymore, because I won’t play in Zouk any f***ing more. They’ve insulted me, but I love you guys.”
The video had since gotten over 95,000 views.
Earlier today, the Internet blew up with hateful comments directed at Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak after his youngest son, Mohd Norashman Najib allegedly forced a guest DJ to end his set prematurely to give leeway to his own performance at the Zouk KL club here in Singapore.
However, it has been revealed that the Malaysian Prime Minister’s son was not the reason why a guest DJ’s set at the Zouk nightclub here in Singapore was cut short.
In the statement released by Zouk Singapore later this evening, the club’s management clarified that the guest DJ, DJ Fila, one half of trance duo Aly & Fila, “was not at any point of time asked to end his set prematurely”.
We speculate however, that like the many other guest DJs who have performed at Zouk, like Danny Tenagalia and Sven Vath, the duo may have had played past their schedule set times and may or may not have been urged by the management to ‘end their set’.
The statement added: “Zouk has constantly held our invited artists in esteem and respect their works. We understand that this incident has resulted in some discontent and disappointment but would like to give the assurance that Zouk will continue to value the importance and presence of all artists and our customers, and their interests.”
