Rape allegation: DBanj's former manager, Franklin Amudo breaks his silence, gives his own account of what transpired at the hotel

Franklin Amudo, a former manager of singer, Dapo Oyebanjo aka DBanj, has released an official statement regarding the rape allegation leveled against DBanj by a lady, Seyitan Babatayo.

In his statement, Franklin said he was the one who invited Seyitan to an event in Lagos where DBanj attended and performed on December 30, 2018. He said he gave Seyitan the keys to his room to pass the night at Glee hotel when she told him she couldn't return home that night as it was too late. He did not sleep in the room as he had to go home to prepare for an early morning flight to Accra, Ghana.

Franklin said Seyitan called him later that night to allege that DBanj found his way into her room and raped her. He said he immediately called one Ajia Mohammed and informed him of the allegation Seyitan made. Franklin said Ajia told him not to worry about it and that he had given Seyitan $100, though the purpose for the money wasn't stated.

Franklin said he was unable to ask DBanj at the time because it was the same period the singer lost his son and he felt it would be insensitive for him to discuss such a thing with him.

Nigerian police denies detaining Seyitan after she accused D'banj of rape

The Nigerian police has denied detaining Seyitan Babatayo, the lady who accused singer, D'banj, of rape.

A police source who spoke to Vanguard, said D’banj reported on three separate occasions at FCID for interrogation and statement, while Seyitan repeatedly refused to show up. Her alleged non-appearance led to the prompt dispatch of officers by the Force CID to Lagos, to invite her for written statement and interrogation on the alleged rape incident.

The police source insisted that there might be a mix up by the legal representative of Seyitan over claims of being arrested and detained by Police operatives at Ikeja in Lagos for 24 hours.

The security official insisted that the alleged rape victim was only invited to give her written statement and also to be interrogated as it was necessary for her to come forward to give a statement to back up her accusation.

Dbanj not our Ambassador-UN

United Nations has said artiste, Oladapo Oyebanjo better known as D’Banj, is not a United Nations Youth Ambassador for Peace, contrary to circulating reports.

The Director of Information, United Nations Information Centre for Nigeria, Joseph Kayanja, said this during an email chat with The Punch on Wednesday.
Following the rape allegation leveled against D’Banj by Seyitan Babatayo, an online petition set up by one E. Popoola began calling on the UN to strip the musician of the title.
The petition on has been signed by over 22,000 people as at June 24, 2020.
In 2012, D’Banj’s publicists had announced that the musician was the first Nigerian to be appointed a UN Youth Ambassador for Peace, an appointment which is also featured on his Wikipedia page.

Responding to an inquiry from the media outlet, the UN has now declared that D’Banj was never at any time given the title of ambassador by the UN.
The email read in part;

I would like to confirm that the said Mr. Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj is not a UN Ambassador. The title was accorded to him by an obscure UN youth association which has nothing to do with the United Nations. I hope this clarifies.

Some human rights activists and persons interested in the ongoing issue have been calling on brands such as Heritage Bank Africa, One Africa, CSA Global, and other establishments to disassociate themselves from Dbanj and stand in support of victims of sexual violence.
It is rumored that a N45 million endorsement deal with Heritage Bank Africa which the Kokomaster recently signed to mark his 40th birthday has been suspended due to the rape allegation.

‘Shame on You for Showing Us the Bully You Are’ – Mocheddah Blasts D’banj

Popular Nigerian Rapper and Singer, Modupe-Oreoluwa Oyeyemi, otherwise known as Mocheddah has joined the long list of Nigerians who have either berated or canceled D’banj over the way his team reportedly handled the rape allegation that was leveled against him.

Mocheddah berated D’banj after an official press statement was released by his accuser, Seyitan. Seyitan in her statement had accused D’banj not only of raping her in 2018 but trying to tamper with justice by kidnapping, intimidating and bullying her since news of her rape accusation broke. Mochedah, in her reaction, said the issue has gone beyond rape and asked that D’banj be stripped of all awards and endorsements to send a strong message to bullies.

Her post reads ;

Shame on you, dbanj.
Shame on you for being the bully you have shown us you are.

Shame on you for silencing a young woman from speaking her truth.

Shame on you for being an instrument to unlawful imprisonment.

Shame on you for influencing the order to arrest a woman that has accused you of rape.

Shame on you for making her sign under duress.

you have shown.the world who you are, and that you truly stand for nothing.

This story has gone beyond rape. You have manipulated the justice system to fit your selfish interest. You have broken the law on multiple counts, and you deserve to be CANCELLED .dbanj should be stripped of his endorsements, and his awards should be retracted to send a message to all bullies that believe they are above the law.
The policemen that arrested seyitan unlawfully should all be exposed and relieved of their duty.

The power of your influence puts the onus on you to act right, but Regardless of your status, you are a man first .many might say this case is about cloth chasing, but takeout your bias towards your favorite and replace him with regular joe, wouldn’t you want the same Justice? Do the right thing

Anyone with these type of accusations is foul and should face the full wrath of the law. What is even more disgusting than a cover up is using this as an opportunity to promote his next song, which was what I meant. “

Dbanj finally breaks his silence on the rape allegation leveled against him.

 He released a statement and also papers signed by his lawyers demanding a retraction and public apology from the accuser. He posted on his Instagram and said; “Today is exactly 1 week after my birthday and this will be the only time I will address the recent false allegations and lies from the pit of hell.
I have chosen to do so because the incident is a slap to my marriage and my beautiful wife, my entire family and those who believe in me. I did not want to dignify the slurs with a response but it appears my silence has empowered my accusers to think i have been scared into the shadows so I would like to state that these Accusations are false and ludicrous and Have been handed over to my Legal Team.

It’s unfortunate that this is coming a few weeks before the second anniversary of the passing of my son Daniel And this well timed falsehood has reopened the painful scars of my deep loss.
To my fans and loved ones , thanks for the support, your positive comments and prayers. God bless us all. 🙏🙏🙏”
