Shaq, aka DJ Diesel, headlines Doggie Jams 2024

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) -The annual Doggie Jams was back Friday in Greenville, as NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal also known as DJ Diesel was the headliner.

People packed Five Points Plaza in Downtown Greenville, for the highly anticipated event.

The gates opened at 3 p.m. as Murda Beatz was the opening performer but many ECU students say they were there to see Shaq, who was also the main performer at Doggie Jams in 2022.

“It’s a big party school, but we’ve never had anybody like Shaq pull up,” said ECU student, Gunner Couch. “This is my first year seeing Shaq so as a fellow basketball player I admire another NBA player pulling up.”
