Nigerian singer D’banj has distanced himself from any remarks that might suggest he is taking sides in the feud between Peter Okoye and Seun Kuti.
This comes in response to the ongoing dispute between the two fellow musicians over their support for presidential candidates in the upcoming elections.
In a statement released by his lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi and obtained by Post Nigeria on Sunday, D’banj asked the public to ignore any false information regarding this matter.
He referred to it as “mischief” spread by a publication in an attempt to drive traffic to gossip blogs and stir up imaginary conflict between himself and his well-respected colleagues in the music industry.
According to the statement: ”This is to notify the public that Mr Oladapo Daniel (D’Banj) never made 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.”
While expressing shock over the false publication attributed to him, the singer added that: “They must all remain one big family in the industry. Though political ideologies may differ and could be expressed in heated ways, the irrefutable truth is that elections will come and go.”
