Entertainer Oladapo Daniel, D’Banj, has dissociated himself from an inciting comment that suggests he is taking sides in the social media disagreement between Seun Kuti and Peter Okoye regarding the 2023 general election.
In a statement made public by D’banj’s solicitor, Pelumi Olajengbesi Esq., it was made clear that D’banj did not author the statement.
He further clarified that D’banj does not hold a stance on the matter, and is not trying to involve himself in the conflict.
2023 – Olowu urges politicians to shun campaign of calumny
Read the full statement below.
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!
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.
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.
