The United Nations in a new report says that D’Banj is not a United Nations’ Youth Ambassador for Peace.
The Director of Information, United Nations Information Centre for Nigeria, Joseph Kayanja, confirmed this to journalists today.
Following Seyitan’s rape allegations against the singer and his action afterwards which was described by many as intimidation, some Nigerians had called for his removal as a UN ambassador.
The petition has been signed by over 22,000 people as of today June 24, however it looks like the singer was never a UN ambassador.
The UN said that D’Banj was never at any time given the title of an ambassador.
The email read in part,
“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.”
