Berlin DJ accuses Peggy Gou of being "greedy, narcissistic, abusive"

Berlin-based DJ Daniel Wang has accused his former neighbour, and now globally known house DJ Peggy Gou of being “greedy, narcissistic and abusive”.

In a recent Facebook post, which at the time of writing has 3,600 likes and over 600 shares, Wang recalls multiple occasions when Gou mistreated himself or others, including other neighbours in their building.

“Like a poor dolphin with a metal spike stuck in its fin, I’ve been traumatised by knowing this awful human being.”

The South Korean born, now Berlin-based Gou, who following releases with Radio Slave’s Rekids and UK indie giant Ninja Tune, has become one of the most known DJs around the world, has worked with Virgil Abloh, been featured in Nike advertisements and launched her own fashion brand, KIRIN.

In the closing paragraph of the post Wang adds “And I hope that, in 2021 and beyond, we treasure real music-lovers and dancers who do it for all the right reasons – for sheer joy, spirit, community… and not for the money, the cocaine, the attention, and spitting on your neighbors and all the people in the nightlife business who built this crazy thing up from dreams and ideals in the first place.”
