Popular Nigerian musician Dbanj has been accused of rape.
A Nigerian model scout, Benjamin Ese, on Wednesday called out Dbanj for allegedly raping his friend two years ago.
His accusations came after the singer joined the campaign against sexual violence and demanded justice for rape victims in a post on his Instagram page, according to Dailymail Nigeria.
The Koko Master post read, “#NoMeansNo, we need to raise our sons in the right way and teach them to love and respect women.
“We need justice for our girls, Say no to rape, racism and tribalism. Let us stop living in FEAR and HATE, and start living in LOVE.”
Responding to his post, one Otunba Benjamin, known as @action_ben, took to his Instagram page, alleging that Dbanj has no right to speak against rape, claiming that he raped his friend.
He claimed that Dbanj had some time raped his friend after he offered her N200, 000 in exchange for sex, and she refused.
According to him, the incident happened in a hotel in Victoria Island.
He alleged that Dbanj collected the spare key of the girl’s hotel room from the receptionist and allegedly raped her afterwards.
Although he refused to disclose his friend’s identity, he added that she decided to keep mute after the incident because of the stigma.
Parts of his post read, “How you dare to post about rape baffles me. On the 30th of December 2018 at Eko Atlantic an event called splash off which was an all-white party, Franklin your manager then invited my friend to the party. On getting there, Dbanj sighted her and sent a few people to talk to her, but she refused.”
