Unfortunately, D’banj is Really Going Down Financially

January 24, 2015 9:54 am

It is no longer rumour that the Koko Master, D’banj is broke, it is a
known truth. It is now so bad that he can’t pay his staff, and many of
them have called it quit. Please, let’s pray for him.

Read the report below from Encomium Magazine

IT has again emerged that pop star, D’Banj is allegedly broke.  ENCOMIUM
Weekly’s highly reliable sources have confirmed, claiming that the
A-list artiste now finds it difficult to pay his staff.

We were told that some of his personal staffers are grumbling over
unpaid salaries even as many have called it quits with his team.

“D’Banj and some of his workers are at loggerheads over unpaid salaries.
 Chu-Chu and Moses have already been withdrawn from his management for
now.  Things are no longer at ease with the Koko master.”

Late last year, filtered into town that the millionaire artiste
might be sued for a debt of over $240,000!  A technology company,
MindHub Technologies headed by one Henry Ojogho claimed he is even owing
the company yet another N15 million.

According to MindHub, D’Banj, through his company, DKM Media Limited,
obtained a loan of over N60 million from them in January 2013, and has
not paid back the said sum despite signing an undertaking to do so.  In
addition, the technology company claimed that the entertainer has issued
two cheques already, one on December 20, 2013 and another on January
20, 2014, both of which had to be returned unpaid after presentation
because the pop star’s account was not liquid enough to offset the debt.

MindHub had threatened to drag the Koko master to court this month if he
failed to clear the $240,000 he allegedly owes the technology company.
It is unlikely that D’Banj has settled with his alleged creditors.

It has also been rumoured that the artiste equally has troubled business
transactions with some prominent Nigerians, the facts of which have not
been ascertained by ENCOMIUM Weekly.

Interestingly, D’Banj has maintained disturbing silence on the heels of
the many debt scandals he is swimming in.  The much he had said about
this was a tweet, “Silence…Hear (sic) is my response to the false
rumours.”

He also told ENCOMIUM Weekly before the tweet he sent out weeks back,
that his response is the video of his collaborative remix of
Oritsefemi’s Double Wahala.  He spoke through his promoter, Ayo
Shonaiya.

Fresh efforts to hear from D’Banj on Saturday, January 10, 2015, was not
fruitful as the celebrated entertainer didn’t pick his call. He also
didn’t respond to the allegation of owing staff salary as a result of
his alleged financial travails.

Our SMS read: “Sir, ENCOMIUM Weekly wants your reaction to fresh
allegation that you owe some of your staff.  Rumours even have it you’ve
disengaged some of them.  We need to hear your side of the story.
 Thanks, Associate Editor.”

D’Banj’s silence has given credence to speculations that the talented
crooner, who has a management deal with Kanye West’s Good Music team is
going through financial stress.

His visibility during the yuletide and release of a single has not changed this perception.

A multi-millionaire and entrepreneur, Dapo Oyebanji (that’s his real
names) has scores of investments that span oil and gas, manufacturing,
merchandising, among other business concerns.

Together with his erstwhile partner-producer, Don Jazzy, he confessed he
shared over N1 billion  (in Mavin Records) before he pulled out of the
group in 2012.
