“It is with great sadness that the Coalition DJs confirm the passing of member and brother DJ Nando, wrote Coalition DJs heads Nick Love and Xavier “Big X” Hargrove in a joint statement.

“Today we’ve lost not only a great talent and DJ but our friend and brother. Nando had a great ear for talent and was highly respected within the DJ community and the music industry at large.

“DJ Nando played a huge role in the success of Atlanta’s thriving music scene, and was a constant “go to” for labels and artists trying to get their music to the masses,” they added.

“We’re not engaging in speculation, as we await the final reports from authorities, and ask that you join us in honoring his memory by doing the same. In the coming days we ask for your continued prayers for DJ Nando’s family friends, his business partner AB and our organization as we work to process this senseless tragedy.”
