UN denounces D’Banj, says not ‘our ambassador’

The United Nations has denounced singer, Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj, saying that he is not a United Nations Youth Ambassador for Peace.

The Director of Information, United Nations Information Centre for Nigeria, Joseph Kayanja, was quoted by The PUNCH on Wednesday.

“I would like to confirm that the said Mr. Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj is NOT a UN Ambassador. The title was accorded to him by an obscure UN youth association which has nothing to do with the United Nations. I hope this clarifies,” Kayanja said.

In 2012, D’Banj’s publicists had claimed that the musician was the first Nigerian to be appointed a UN Youth Ambassador for Peace.

Following the rape allegations levelled against D’Banj by Seyitan Babatayo, an online petition was started calling on the UN to strip the musician of the title.

The petition on Change.org has been signed by over 22,000 people as of June 24, 2020.

The Kokomaster, who recently signed an endorsement deal with Heritage Bank to mark his 40th birthday, is currently a subject of police investigation.

Seyitan’s friend, Benjamin Ese, in a Twitter thread in early June, had told the story of how D’Banj allegedly raped Seyitan at Glee Hotel, Lagos two years ago – in December 2018
