Nigerian singer Dbanj has once again reacted to the rape allegation levied against him by Miss Seyitan, as he called for a stop of social media trail.
Reports emerged last week, claiming Dbanj ordered the police to arrest Seyitan over her allegations and this angered lots of Nigerians.
Reacting to the backlash he received following the alleged arrest of Seyitan, Dbanj shared a video of him dancing to his hit song ‘Olorun maje’ which is a Yoruba phrase that means ‘god forbid’. Sharing the video he wrote;
”Innocent until proven guilty…., STOP SOCIAL MEDIA TRIAL #SAY NO TO RAPE AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION”
It can be recalled that Dbanj had given his accuser 48 hours to pay N100m or face legal action in a pre-litigation letter signed by his lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN).
The letter was addressed to Miss Babatayo’s lawyer, Ojoge, Omileye, and Partners, dated June 15, 2020.
However, D’banj also demanded that an apology be published in at least four national dailies.
The letter read in part,
“We have been instructed to demand and we do hereby demand from you the following: That your client makes an outright apology and a total retraction of each and every false allegation made against and concerning our client.
“The said apology and retraction shall be published in four national dailies with wide circulation in Nigeria as well as on social media platforms and handles being used by your client and her hirelings.
“That your client makes a compensatory deposit of the sum of N100m only through these chambers in favour of our client to assuage his battered image.”
