D’banj’s former manager Franklin Amudo breaks silence on rape allegation

Franklin Amudo, the former manager to Oladapo Oyebanjo a.k.a D’banj, has for the first time spoken about the ongoing rape allegation involving the singer and Seyitan Babatayo.

The artist manager said he is speaking up because some people have accused him of being the mastermind of the rape allegations against D'banj.




In a statement, Franklin said he was the one who invited Seyitan to an event in Lagos where D’Banj attended and performed on December 30, 2018.

 He said he gave Seyitan the key-card 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 when he had already arrived Accra to allege that D’Banj somehow found his way into the room and raped her.

Franklin said he was shocked at Seyitan’s claim because D’Banj did not know his room number and was not lodged at the hotel.

He said he was unable to ask D’Banj at the time because it was the same period the singer lost his son.

His statement below:



D'banj has since denied the rape allegations and filed a N1.5 billion lawsuit against Seyitan through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome at the federal high court in Abuja.

However, Seyitan has said she stands by every word on her statement.
