Sept 28, 2011 – There were reports circulating via an online media outlet that Don Jazzy & Dbanj were arrested for drug trafficking. The Mo’Hits camp finally reacted with this official statement below.
Dbanj and Don Jazzy are in Lagos. They are no where near New York. 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. Its a figment of someone’s evil imagination. D’banj’s media company, Media Image Managers are not losing sleep about this malacious 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. For further clarification, call 08023165380 or email [email protected]. Signed. Mo’ Hits media company, Media Image Managers.
Here is what the original news article looked like:
Nigerian popular music sensation Dapo Oyebanji a.k.a D’Banj and CEO of MO’Hits Micheal Eneili a.k.a Don Jazzy, have been arrested by local authorities in the United States for alleged drug trafficking.
According to our sources they were apprehended last night after the F.B.I recieved an anonymous tip that the Nigerian duo were arriving the JFK airport “loaded”.
About 100kilos of substance suspected to be cocaine was recoverd from their luggage and the Nigerians are currently being detained by the F.B.I pending further investigations and subsequent court hearing.
This comes as a big blow for G.O.O.D Music, who just recently, signed the multi- talented duo. Attempts to reach Mr. Carter (Jay-Z) C.E.O G.O.O.D Music or Kanye West had proved futile as at the time of this report. Credit: E News
