This message follows a spat between popular Nigerian singer and internet personality Peter Okoye and Seun Kuti over support for presidential candidates in the upcoming general elections.

D’banj, in a statement signed by his lawyer, Pelumi Olajengbesi, and made available to newsmen on Sunday, urged the public to disregard the “mischief” of a publication maliciously pushed to drive traffic to gossip blogs and stoke non-existent conflict between him and his well-regarded colleagues in the industry.

“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,” according to the statement.

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 be expressed in heated ways, the undeniable fact is that elections come and go.
