Video: D’Banj says there Ain’t Nuthin’ Special about Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde’s Buttocks, so File!

D’Banj conducted a press conference with Ghana press while there for Ghana’s Vodafone concert. He is articulate, not chewing gum or licking candy and he takes on rumors including the whole thing about the ban on Oliver Twist, his song, as a result of alleged reference about Nollywood Actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde’s buttocks (butt).

Basically, “file!”

“I never really said anything because it was just helping the whole song. The song has not been banned. ‘Oliver Twist’ is a simple song that means what I believe everyone of us — whether man, woman or animal — stands for, what we are, and what I have seen. I don’t know where the propaganda started from but it has been chaotic on social media recently and people have been spreading rumours or people dying and things happening. I was in London heading to Miami and I saw the news. So I called my management and they called the NBC and they said they aren’t aware of it being banned. My people say they have been hearing it everywhere, radio stations are still playing.”

Ghana’s Ameyah Debrah has the full story.
