With over 15 million signatures, Nigerian singer Dbanj is about to lose his UN appointment due to a rape allegation against him.

It all started earlier this month when Dbanj spoke up against s3xual violence, not willing to let that slide Miss Seyitan’s friend, Benjamin Ese, took to Twitter to shut the singer and also narrated how D’Banj allegedly raped Seyitan at a hotel two years ago in December 2018.

This got the Koko master infuriated and led to calling legal action against Seyitan, he not only demanded for a public apology from Seyitan he also asked her to pay the whopping sum of  N100m in damages.

Not done, Dbanj also contracted some Policemen to detain Seyitan for o ver 24 hours and intimidated her, making her delete all chats, social media posts, and vital information from her phone, she also promoted his songs on her twitter handles, which many suspect she was forced to do.

The Drama isn’t slowing down yet, over 15,000 people has signed an online petition calling on the United Nations to strip him of his appointment as United Nations Ambassador for Peace.

The big brands associated with the singer has also be called upon to end their commercial relationship with him, brands like  Heritage Bank Africa, One Africa, CSA Global, and other establishments while they drum up support for victims of s3xual violence.

The petition which was started by one E.Pooola on Change.Org had hit 14, 310 as of 11.10 am on Friday.

The petition read;

“We call on the United Nations, and United Nations Women Africa organizations to remove Nigerian artiste Mr Dapo Oyebanjo as a youth ambassador and distance themselves from his actions following the sponsored kidnap of Seyitan who accused D’Banj of rape and sexual assault which happened in 2018.

“Women in Nigeria are increasingly at risk of sexual violence and the United Nations and United Nations Women Africa as an entity committed to the empowerment of women should not be seen to associate themselves with alleged rapists, abusers, and kidnappers.

“We ask the United Nations and United Nations Women Africa to support and lend their influence in helping Seyitan get justice for the abuse she endured in 2018 and the harassment and bullying in the past weeks.”
