Nigerian Musician, D’Banj is not our ambassador — United Nations


The United Nations says Nigeria’s musician, D’Banj, is not a United Nations Youth Ambassador for Peace.

D’Banj is accused of rape by Seyitan Babatayo who made her story public on Twitter.

Over 22,000 Nigerians signed a petition on Change.org as of June 24, 2020 to strip him of his supposed United Nations Youth Ambassador for Peace.

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

PUNCH Nigeria confirmed that D’banj is not a UN Peace Ambassador: “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.
