rom D’Banj and Don Jazzy’s
publicist… We find it really mischievous
and wicked for somebody to
sit in the comfort of his home
and send out messages
capable of damaging the lives
of his fellow human being.” This statement above formed
part of the statement by multi
award hip hop artistes and
producer, Dapo Oyebanjo
popularly called D’banj and Don
Jazzy, C.E.O of Mo’Hits Records’ media company, Media Image
Managers. Late Sunday night through
Monday, Internet and
Blackberry broadcast messages
were flying around which said
the duo were ‘arrested’ in the
US with 1,000 kilograms of substance suspected to be
hard drugs and they have been
detained by the Federal Bureau
of Investigation, FBI. The stars’ publicist in the
statement described the news
as the handiwork of people
who want to bring down any
successful person. “It is this
Shoot Him Down Syndrome (SHDS) that has pervaded the
country for years now, and
artistes as well as celebrities
bear the brunt more. We want
to state categorically that
Dbanj and Don Jazzy are in Lagos. They are nowhere near
New York or even Ghana.” The
statement continued: “The
two respected artistes are
proud Nigerians doing the
country proud worldwide. They do not need to peddle
drugs as they are successful
young men who worked hard
to get to where they are today.
The report making the rounds
that they were arrested in America on Sunday is false and
an attempt to tarnish the
image of these proudly
Nigerian artistes. It’s a figment
of someone’s evil imagination.
We at Media Image Managers are not losing sleep about this
malicious campaign, but
records must be set straight.
D’banj and Don Jazzy are at
their Lekki home in Lagos,
Nigeria, they are well and okay. They have had no brush
with the law for any reason,
not even for a traffic offence.
What makes it more funny is
the fact that D’banj and Don
Jazzy were having a routine meeting with many others
including his media company
representatives on Monday
when obnoxious message
dropped in many phones in the
living room claiming the duo were in custody in America.
Really sad.” Since the
popularity of Internet,people
have literally gone gaga. Every
average Nigerian is now a
journalist as they struggle to outdo each other in
broadcasting the news of the
death of popular people as
well as posting on their status
on social networking site,
Facebook. These news turn to be false most of the time.
Nigerians have killed former
Biafra war lord Chief
Udumegwu Ojukwu and
Freedom fighter, former South
African President, Nelson Mandela several times before
they will eventually die. It was
a broadcast message that
sparked off a widespread
panic early this year. Some
mischievous people started spreading the news that the
Third Mainland Bridge was
falling apart and people should
avoid that route. Government
of Lagos had to debunk that
claim. So many incidents that have led to panic had been
caused by this new generation
Blackberry and Facebook
‘journalists’. Rumour peddlers
have told the world that Charly
Boy was ‘dead’ some couple of years ago. They ‘killed’ gospel
musician and Evangelist Sonny
Okosuns once before he
eventually died. The most
guilty of this crime are faceless
individuals who run web sites. They have turned the Internet
to blackmail tool used in
running anybody who tries to
stand up to them down. “That
is why we at Media Image
Managers will want to use this opportunity to call on
government to call Nigerians
to order by way of
enlightenment on the need to
verify information before they
spread it further. D’banj and Don Jazzy, two successful
artistes are target today (so
many people had been targets
in the past), who knows the
next target? These young men
even when they were yet to break into limelight did not do
any illegal thing, so it would be
most sad now that almost a
decade of hard work that has
paid off would be rubbished by
engaging in anything illegal.” D’banj and Don Jazzy aside
winning many awards were
recently signed American
superstar Kanye West’s G.O.O.D
