Amid rape allegations, D’banj flouts physical distancing, performs at Abuja party

Musician Oladapo Oyebanjo, better known as D’banj, is at the centre of yet another controversy after flouting social distancing measures at an Abuja party.

A Nigerian lady had claimed that the entertainer raped her at Glee hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos, in 2018.

The inspector-general of police, Mohammed Adamu, had also ordered a probe into the case after which D’banj was flown to Abuja and interrogated by an assistant police commissioner, Adaku Anya.

But on Sunday, clips that were said to have been from an Abuja party emerged on social media as the embattled singer is seen coming within close proximity of showgoers without having a face mask.

The event was said to have taken place on Saturday, despite social distancing guidelines by the federal government to contain the spread of the coronavirus disease.

In the clip, D’banj can be seen singing with a microphone amid a deluge of dancing people while occasionally shaking hands, embracing others, and striking poses with both fans and admirers.

D’banj’s new stunt comes after controversial singer, Naira Marley, had staged a concert that violated the government’s directives on physical distancing amid a massive turnout.

It also follows after Marley was detained alongside actress Funke Akindele after the latter hosted a party that the former had attended, despite Lagos’ lockdown measures at the time.
