D’Banj under fire for flouting COVID-19 guideline to performs at party

  • Musician, Oladapo Oyebanjo aka D’Banj, has come under fire on social media for performing at a crowded party in contravention of the COVID-19 guidelines of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and the Federal Capital Territory Authority.

  • In a video that was posted on Twitter by @Mslami_A, the musician is seen performing his song titled, ‘Olorun Ma Je’, in a crowded house flanked by mostly women, none of whom was wearing a face mask.
  • The PUNCH had exclusively reported last week that the musician had flown to Abuja from Lagos to face police interrogation amid allegations of rape.
  • In the new video posted on Twitter on Sunday, D’Banj is seen mingling with fans in contravention of the social distancing regulation.
  • @tflourish tweeted, “In a nation where there are no consequences for actions, this is what you get. Naira Marley did it and got away with it so why not D’Banj?”
  • @Seyitundeayantunde also tweeted, “Apparently coronavirus protocols are for poor people.”
  • “D’Banj is just confused…. Doesn’t he have a manager again?” tweeted @Deeeccoo.
  • Some Tweeps argued that the Kokomaster ought to be sober and clear himself of the rape allegations first before attending social gatherings.
  • They also argued that it was unfortunate that it was mostly women that surrounded D’Banj when they ought to stand in solidarity with his accuser, Seyitan Babatayo.
  • However, many of the musician’s fans defended his action, insisting that he remained innocent until proven guilty.
  • The government has arraigned many persons for flouting the COVID-19 guidelines, many of whom have been convicted and made to pay fines or sentenced to prison.
  • In April, popular actress, Funke Akindele aka Jenifa, and her husband were convicted by a magistrate court for hosting a party at their home during the lockdown.
  • Two weeks ago, Musician, Azeez Fashola, and his crew flew in from Lagos to attend a concert in Abuja.
  • The airline that conveyed them was suspended while the venue of the concert, Jabi Lake Mall, was shut for a week. The FCT has vowed to prosecute Naira Marley.
