D’banj’s former Manager Frank Amudo has come out to speak on the rape allegation leveled against the singer by Twitter user Seyitan Babatayo. The artiste manager has released an official statement recounting how the event happened on the said day from his point of view. Franklin said he was the one who invited Seyitan to an event in Lagos where the kokomaster attended and performed on December 30, 2020. 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 D’banj 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 the singer 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.
