- Ex-manager of singer Dbanj, Franklin Amudo, has come out to narrate his version of what happened on the day he allegedly raped Seyitan
- Amudo opened up via a statement shared on Instagram and in a different video interview
- The manager noted that it was necessary for him to speak up as the matter has caused him mental and emotional unrest
A fresh wave of event has come to light amidst the ongoing sexual abuse scandal involving singer Dapo Oyebanjo a.k.a Dbanj and a Nigerian lady identified as Seyitan Babatayo.
Just recently, a former manager of the music star identified as Frank Amudo came out to give his narration of what happened on December 30, 2018, the day Dbanj allegedly raped his accuser.
Amudo in a statement shared on his Instagram page noted that it has become pertinent for him to speak up following the back and forth that has been going on in the online community over the past few weeks.
The manager said it also became necessary for him to speak up seeing that certain individuals are going around with the narrative that he connived with Seyitan to accuse the music icon.
Amudo speaking on the issue disclosed that he truly invited Seyitan to an All-white event at Eko Hotel, and they shared seats with two of Dbanj’s friends identified as Ajia Mohammed and one Oyinda.
According to the ex-manager, the entertainer who was billed to perform at the event was lodged at Eko hotel, while he and Ajia were lodged at Glee Hotel.
Amudo said after the event, Seyitan said it was too late for her to return home and he offered her his hotel room at Glee, since he had made plans to return to his house because of an early flight to Accra the next day.
"I gave Seyitan the key-card to the room at the car-park of the hotel and left," he said.
Continuing his narration, Dbanj’s ex-manager said by the time he got to Accra, he got a call from Seyitan claiming that Dbanj gained entry into her room and forcefully had his way. Amudo said the claim was shocking because the singer was never aware of his room number or had access to the key card.
This was followed by the manager placing a call to Dbanj’s friend, Ajia, who was lodged in the same hotel, and asking him what transpired. Amudo said he was told that the issue had been settled and Seyitan was already given $100.
He said he placed a call to Seyitan and she spoke angrily on phone while noting that she has left everything in God’s hand because she does not want to go public.
Back to what played out some weeks ago, Dbanj’s manager said he was completely shocked when he heard the rape allegations. He said he also got messages from Seyitan on WhatsApp saying Dbanj had no right to speak against rape.
According to him, this was followed by people placing several calls to him and tagging him the mastermind behind the scandal. Amudo said the events put financial, mental, emotional and mental strain on him which warranted his decision to give his account.
