Dbanj has been in the middle of a controversy after he was accused of rape by Miss Seyitan Babatayo.
Seyitan had alleged that Dbanj’s ex-manager, Amudo, invited her to a party where she was spotted by D’banj.
According to her, she passed the night in a hotel room which Amudo booked, where the rape allegedly occurred.
Speaking on the allegation via a statemnent on Sunday night, Amudo confirmed that he indeed invited Babatayo to the all-white party and gave her the key card to his hotel room at Glee hotel in Victoria Island as he had to rush back home because of an early morning flight to Accra the next day.
Amudo also said that Ms Babatayo had called him while he was on a trip to report the alleged rape incident to him.
“Upon my arrival in Accra, Seyitan called, saying that D’banj gained access into her hotel room at Glee Hotel by 3am and raped her. I was shocked at this allegation because I wondered how D’banj gained access into this room knowing full well that I did not disclose my room number to him and he was not lodged at the hotel,” his statement read.
He said further that he called a mutual friend who was at the party and also lodged at Glee hotel, Ajia Mohammed, to inform him but he was told not to worry about it as he had given Ms Babatayo a hundred dollar.
“I called Seyitan back to ask why she was given $100 and why she would claim she was raped by D’banj and she angrily replied in a series of voice notes reiterating the accusation and that she was told not to tell me because they assumed she was my girlfriend. She said she had left everything in God’s hands and made it clear that she was not interested in taking the matter to the public.”
Mr Amudo added that he did not speak to D’banj about the accusation.
“I chose not to discuss this matter with D’banj because he and his wife were also in Accra as this was supposed to be a healing trip to recover from the loss of their son. I thought it was insensitive to discuss such issue on this trip, as Seyitan had even mentioned that she didn’t want the matter escalated further,” he said.
