Finally, D’Banj Reacts To Debt Scandal Rumour
Self-acclaimed 'Koko Master' and businessman, Dapo Daniel Oyebanjo, better known as D'Banj, who recently bagged a multi millionaire endorsement deal with international company, has rubbished recent allegations that he is in a multiple debt mess.
The multiple award-winning entertainer, who also plays the harmonica, took to his Twitter page to react to the allegations.
Since last weekend, there have been reports alleging the singer of being indebted to a company. He was accused of owning the outfit several millions of Naira.
Reacting to the reports, D'Banj wrote, "Silence. Here is my response to the false rumours, with a link to the newly released music video of Oritsefemi's 'Double Wahala Part 2'."
According to the reports, the company decided to drag the singer to court after he allegedly failed to pay up the debt.
Last weekend, reports went viral claiming D'Banj, through his company, D Kings Media Limited, obtained a loan of over N60million from MindHub Technologies sometimes in January 2013.
The company, through its counsel, claimed D'Banj fooled them when he presented a dud cheque to them after he was asked to pay up his alleged debt.
Part of the letter written to D'Banj through the company's solicitors reads;
“We act as Solicitors to MINDHUB TECHNOLOGIES LTD (hereinafter called “OUR CLIENT”), and on whose instruction we write you this letter in the manner stated hereunder.
