Some Nigerian celebrities have reacted to rape allegation against D’banj and arrest of his accuser, Seyitan Babtayo.
Recall that Seyitan accused singer, Dapo Oyebanjo aka D’banj, of raping her at Glee hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos, in 2018. She was arrested and allegedly made to recant her statement by the singer’s team.
Tiwa Savage, MI Abaga, Rita Dominic, Timini Egbuson, Toke Makinwa, Timi Dakolo and Eku Edewor have all taken to Twitter to react.

I hear you all and even though this is heartbreaking for me, my view is still the same. I stand strong with the victims of all sexual abuse so I say this: 1. Victims should always speak out n speak their truth 2. those found guilty must be punished to d full extent of the law.

How can you defend yourself from a criminal accusation by asking your team to commit more crimes on your behalf?! @iamdbanj if you are not guilty, then this route is incredibly damning and reeks of desperation. It’s is abhorrent to use your power and influence in this way.

I’m normally against cancel culture but Dbanj is cancelled in my books for real if this all some sort of publicity stunt. ?

I remain a huge advocate for women and issues concerning women, especially violence against women; from physical abuse to emotional abuse, sexual abuse, Rape and oppression of any form…
