Nigerian singer. D’banj has finally responded to the rape accusation against him by one miss Seyitan Babatayo.

Miss Babatayo had a week ago alleged that the singer sexually assaulted her in a hotel room on December 30, 2018.

Reacting to this, the singer Oladapo Oyebanjo via his Instagram page denied the allegation as he shared a pre-litigation letter signed by his lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), against miss Seyitan Babatayo seeking for the sum of N100 million as damages within 48 hours or face legal action and also a public apology.

D’banj in the caption of the letter he shared wrote:

“Today is exactly 1 week after my birthday and this will be the only time I will address the recent false allegations and lies from the pit of hell.

“I have chosen to do so because the incident is a slap to my marriage and my beautiful wife, my entire family and those who believe in me. I did not want to dignify the slurs with a response but it appears my silence has empowered my accusers to think i have been scared into the shadows so I would like to state that This Accusation are false and ludicrous and Have been handed over to my Legal Team.

“It’s unfortunate that this is coming a few weeks before the second anniversary of my late son Daniel And this well timed falsehood has reopened the painful scars of my deep loss.

“To my fans and loved ones , thanks for the support, your positive comments and prayers. God bless us all”
