WATCH: DJ Tira attacked during University of Venda performance
Watch the video of DJ Tira attacked by a bottle thrown by an attendee.
DJ Tira was hit by a bottle on Saturday morning during a performance at the University of Venda in Limpopo. Luckily Tira only sustained minor injuries in the form of a bruised eye.
The DJ shared a video of the incident on his Twitter page, where the crowd can be seen dancing and singing along to Tira’s songs before a bottle is thrown towards him, hitting his eye and landing on his turntable.
“Traumatic experience this morning at University of Venda,” he captioned the video.

Clearly (and understandably) feeling a bit sensitive, DJ shared a picture of his bruised eye after someone commented that the bottle NEARLY hit him, instead of TRULY hitting him.

DJ Tira then took to Instagram to post a screenshot from the fateful performance, explaining how the incident was a sign that he should retire early and look out for his safety.
“This morning at University of Venda, I was hit by a bottle. A sign for early retirement maybe… my safety comes first,” he wrote.
