D'banj and Don Jazzy denies cocaine arrest in US by F.B.I.
Both men denied the rumours on their Twitter handles on Monday, saying they were in Lagos.
A message on BlackBerry Messenger had said they being detained in New York pending further investigations and court hearing.
It also said it was a blow to the collaboration between both Nigerians and American music stars, Kanye West and Jay-Z.
“This comes as a big blow to for G.O.O.D Music, who just recently signed the multi-talented duo. Attempts to reach Mr. Carter (Jay-Z) CEO G.O.O.D Music or Kanye West proved abortive as at the time of filing this report,” the BBM reads.
But responding to a question from a follower, Dbanj said, “It‘s a stupid rumour. Myself and Jazzy are in Lagos and all is well. Those carrying the rumour Baba won ma run down.”
On his own verified Twiter handle, Don Jazzy wrote, “Dem catch us with Alomo abi? Hiss. If Dbanj was caught with drugs in Yankee (America), that one mean say for a trip from Ghana to Lagos, U need to transit in NY (New York) abi? osheee lol.”
