op Star and Mo’Hits artiste D’banj will not be attending the Channel O Music Awards as announced earlier. D’banj will be missing from the stage this evening Friday, November, 2011 as he is honoured with a ‘Special Recognition Award‘.
Sources in South Africa are telling us that D’banj allegedly told the organizers he has ‘bigger issues to deal with’.
The Channel O producers are now in last minute rush trying to trouble shoot.
But those close to D’banj, and who are familiar with the developing situation say he was actually at the airport yesterday (Thursday) prepared to travel to South Africa for the event. ‘He turned back when he realised they got him an economy return ticket. D’banj only flies ‘First Class’, an insider told us early today.
As reported earlier, organizers of the 2011 edition of the awards had announced that D’banj (real name Dapo Oyebanjo) would be given a Special Recognition Award during the ceremony.
We are told that someone has now gone to his residence in Lekki, Lagos, to record an acceptance speech which will be played during the show when his award is announced.Nice one Dbanj, It is very disrespectful to buy an economy ticket for a superstar like you, economy is meant for all those losers that steal and starve themselves to buy and CDs and concert tickets
