DJ Stokie, the renowned Mzansi DJ, recently experienced a distressing incident while traveling from South Africa to Dubai on an Emirates flight.
Upon arriving at Dubai’s O.R Tambo International Airport, he discovered that his traveling bag had been vandalized, and several valuable items were stolen.
Expressing his frustration, DJ Stokie shared a video of his damaged bag on social media, shedding light on the unfortunate incident.
“So yesterday I boarded a flight with Emirates, EK766, to Dubai from O.R Tambo Airport at 21h45, only to have my bag vandalized and all my branded items stolen.
“My sneakers and clothes are all gone. Sadly, this seems to be a common occurrence during baggage checks,” he captioned his post.
As news of the incident spread, DJ Stokie’s followers and fans expressed their sympathy and offered advice on how to better secure his luggage in the future. One commenter suggested, “Make sure next time you shrink wrap your bag; that will help.”
It is disheartening to hear about such incidents, especially when individuals entrust their belongings to airlines during their travels. While it’s important to acknowledge that such occurrences are rare, it’s crucial for airlines and airport authorities to address and prevent these incidents.
In the meantime, DJ Stokie serves as a reminder for all travelers to take necessary precautions when packing their bags and to remain vigilant during their journeys. Whether it’s shrink-wrapping your luggage or investing in secure locks, every measure counts to ensure the safety of your belongings.
