Ragga Siai files complaint with police

Gelu, known as Ragga Siai to fans, confirmed this with Loop PNG today.

He said a complaint was laid at the Boroko Police Station, last Thursday, January 4th, as soon as he arrived in Port Moresby from Rabaul.

The complaint is based on cyberbullying and attempted murder, following the physical assault perpetrated on him by the lead singer of the Wild Pack band.

“Everything is now in the hands of the police. They will commence their investigation and charge accordingly,” he said.

Wild Pack production banned

A circular stating a ban on this group’s music was released from the office of the Chief Censor Steven Mala.

This action follows the viral video capturing a member of the Wild Pack band assaulting another musician.

The video was uploaded on social platform Facebook over the festive period, attracting an overwhelming response from the public.

As per the circular, songs or video clips the boy band has featured in or produced must not be aired, commencing immediately.

Calls for music regulatory body

Tarzzy Metta, a music teacher in West New Britain said the Government should start looking at this seriously before the Industry is taken over by unscrupulous people.

Tarzzy Metta is also the Chairman of the West New Britain Music Association.

His call for a professional regulatory body for the Music Industry follows what he says is unethical behaviours portrayed by popular young PNG musicians.

Recently, a video went viral on the social media platform “Facebook” of a band member of Wild Pack, uncontrollably bashing a helpless fellow artist, Raga Siaii.

Assaulted artist has a case: Police

The video shows a band member of Wild Pack badly bashing another musician identified as Ragga Siai.

While the cause of the fist fight is unknown, many have condemned the fight since the video was initially uploaded on Facebook.

Deputy Police Commissioner of Operations, Jim Andrews says that the victim of the violence in this video has the right to come forward and place a formal complaint with police.

DCP Andrews says that such cases need the victims to step up and report the matter so that police can begin official investigations into the incident.

Senior Musician condemns violent video

Chairman of the West New Britain Music Association, Tazzy Metta, said the Association totally condemns the act of violence towards a human being and a fellow musician. 

The music Industry in PNG is a struggling one with many musicians going out their own way, appearing in concerts or fundraisers to make money.

Those who make it, have many fans looking up to them and admiring their talents but fans can break them as well.

Papua New Guineas on the social media platform “Facebook” are now calling on all radio stations to pull down songs sung by the band Wild Pack.
