Dozi, Gerhard Steyn in verbal dispute

2012-02-15 12:09
Johannesburg - Two famous Afrikaans singers, Dozi and Gerhard "Baby Tjoklits" Steyn, were involved  in a severe verbal altercation on Sunday on Dozi's farm near Hartbeespoort Dam and now want nothing to do with one another.

The whole debacle, in which one of Dozi's fans hit at Steyn in the men's toilet, happened in Dozi's' new pub on his farm. There were about 120 people present at the venue.

According to Dozi, his girlfriend's father, Leon Wolmarans, sparked the fight when he told Steyn: "You comb your hair like a poes."

"I immediately cut back and told the guy, 'And you comb your hair like doos,'" said Steyn.

Very disappointed

"I thought everything was done, but then Dozi and about ten of his supporters came to me.

"Dozi was, in my opinion, under the influence [of alcohol] and started cursing at me because according to him I insulted his future father-in-law.

"If I hadn't given my heart to the Lord and am currently on the straight and narrow, there could've been a bloody fist fight.

"I went to the bathroom. Dozi and one of his fans followed me and continued the tongue-lashing. In the bathroom, the man hit at me. I just ducked and laughed at him," Steyn said on Tuesday.

He said he was "very disappointed" in Dozi's behaviour and that he went there to support Dozi.

Career jealousy

Dozi in turn said that everything was "initially very nice" but then he heard "a noise" where Steyn was. "I immediately went looking, because I don't want dodgy people here.

"People were shouting and swearing. Yes, I did confront Gerhard about what happened between him and my future father-in-law, but I wasn't under the influence.

"I think he was disrespectful. I don't need people like that in my life. Gerhard was aggressive and tightened his arms. I will not allow him here again."

Steyn said the following about Dozi's decision: "I will never go there again. I only wanted to help the poor man with his pub."

He thinks Dozi's "exaggerated aggression" is due to "maybe a little career jealousy and alcohol."
