D’banj Speaks On Sponsoring Attack Against Seun Kuti
Nigerian singer, Daniel Oladapo, popularly known as D’banj, has debunked sponsoring the viral social media post, attacking his colleague, Seun Kuti.
Idoamebo reports that in the wake of the social media brawl between Seun and Peter Okoye over the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, a post purportedly written by D’banj insulting Seun had surfaced online.
In the post, D’banj was alleged to have said the son of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, has a low IQ due to substance abuse and should focus more on music than ranting on social media without offering any solution to Nigeria’s problems.
However, in a statement via his lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, the ‘Emergency’ crooner refute the claims of making any derogatory statement against Seun or anyone in the entertainment industry.
He further advised the general public to disregard the malicious social media publication adding he was also perplexed by the false publication attributed to him.
The statement read: “This is to notify the general public that Mr Oladapo Daniel (D’Banj) never made nor could make any derogatory or disparaging statement against anybody, especially within the entertainment industry, nor has he directed the publication of any such material on his behalf. Never!
“The general public is thus advised to disregard the mischief of a publication maliciously pushed to drive traffic to gossip blogs and stoke non-existent conflict between Oladapo Daniel (D’Banj) and his well-regarded colleagues in the industry.
“For the records, D’banj authored no statement against his friend and brother Seun Kuti, and he is as perplexed as the general public by the publication falsely attributed to him.
“Dbanj’s view is that in the entertainment industry, they are all one big family and that though political ideologies may differ and could be expressed in heated ways, he holds that the irrefutable truth is that elections will come and go and they all will and must remain one big family”
