Nigerian hip hop music artiste cum fashion designer, Modupe-Oreoluwa Oyeyemi Ola popularly known as Mo'Cheddah has reprimanded music star, D'banj over allegations of taking advantage of his social influence to forcibly silence a lady who accused him of rape.
It would be recalled that a lady named Seyitan Babatayo accused D'banj of sexually molesting her in 2018. The accusation triggered a lot of reactions especially when news reports filtered in that the lady had been detained by the police over allegations of false accusation to tarnish Dbanj’s reputation. There were also reports that D’banj had also taken control of her social media account and wiped off the statement containing the rape allegation. Many Nigerians took to social media to sign a petition demanding that he be stripped of all his endorsements and made to face the law.
Seyitan who later regained her freedom from police custody released a statement on Wednesday, June 24, in which she revealed that D'banj and his lawyers forced her to retract the rape accusation filed against him.
Reacting to this, Mo'Cheddah took to her Instagram page @Mocheddah to express her anger and lambasted D’banj for the unfair treatment of Seyitan.
According to the 29 year old graduate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), D'banj should be ashamed of himself for conniving with the Nigerian police and judicial system for preventing Seyitan from speaking her truth. She further accused D'banj of manipulating the judicial system for the gain of his selfish interest. She clamored that he should be stripped of all his endorsements and also have his music awards retracted to serve as a lesson to all bullies who believe they are above the law.
