The United Nations has debunked claims that Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj, is Nigeria’s first Youth Ambassador for Peace.
Speaking earlier today Joseph Kayanja, United Nations’ Director of Information, Information Centre for Nigeria, revealed that the claim made by D’Banj’s publicists in 2012 was false.
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.”
The rebuttal claims following the rape allegations levelled against D’Banj by Seyitan Babatayo.
Naija News learnt that 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
