Nigerian music superstar D’banj is having the time of
his life with parties and concerts around the globe
celebrating his 10th year anniversary as an entertainer,
however his alleged debt allegation crisis that seems to
have died down has reared its ugly head up again.
Reports have revealed that the singer will be in court
on Monday, March 30, 2015, to defend himself against
allegations of refusal to repay back loans.
In the last quarter of 2014, multiple media reports
alleged that D’banj might be dragged to court by a top
oil and gas industry player, Henry Ojogho, Vice
Chairman of Broron Group. » Ojogho, who is also the
Vice Chairman of MindHub Technologies, an integrated
Rice farming and milling production company, who
alleged that D’banj, through his company, DKM Media
Limited, obtained a loan of over N60m from him in
January 2013 and has not paid back the said sum
despite signing an undertaking to do so.
Following this allegation, the writ of summons and
other relevant documents in the suit was posted on
D’Banj’s residence on Osaro Isokpan Street in Lekki
Phase 1.
The pasting was done by the court bailiff on December
17, 2014 at about 1:35p.m, pursuant to order of court
made on November 12, 2014 having been satisfied that
the defendant was evading being served the notice.
Subsequently, the court case between the DB Records
boss and Mindhub Technologies bearing suit number:
LD/ADR/445/14 was scheduled to commence hearing
on Monday, January 26, 2015 at the Multi-door
Courthouse in Obalende, Lagos, but it was indefinitely
postponed as a result of strike by the Judiciary Staff
Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) which paralysed activities
and court rooms remain closed.
The strike was recently called off by the judicial
workers, and immediately a new date was set for the
court case.
A source in the camp of the claimant’s camp said, “Yes,
we are back to court, and we are aware that D’banj has
secured the services of a lawyer as well who wants to
file in some documents in his defense, but we are yet
to receive the papers. Meanwhile the case has been
adjourned to March 30, 2015 at the Multi-door
Courthouse in Obalende, Lagos.”
In January 2015, D’banj kicked off his 10th year
anniversary celebrations in Lagos when he flew in
American twerk queen Amber Rose to host the kick-off
party in Lagos.
In February he moved the party to South Africa where
he was hosted at ‘Harlem’ and ‘Kong’ night clubs with
a lot of celebrities in attendance.
Last week Thursday, February 27, 2015, D’banj
headlined the Industry Night celebrations in Dubai as
part of his 10th anniversary celebrations where he
performed alongside Kenya’s Sauti Sol, Dubai’s G Mac
and others.
Last month, popular journalist and socialite, Azuka
Ogujiuba of Thisday Newspapers, in an Op-ed, revealed
that D’banj allegedly owes more money than has been
reported » .
