Frank Amudo, former manager of Dbanj files N200 million libel and defamation lawsuit against Kemi Olunloyo


Frank Amudo, the former manager to Dbanj has filed a or libel and defamation lawsuit against controversial blogger and journalist Kemi Olunloyo.

Kemi Olunloyo in a Twitter thread had alleged that Frank Amudo had masterminded the rape allegations against Dbanj by working with Seyitan Babatayo to defame the personality of Dbanj

Amudo through his lawyer demanded that:

“Immediately cease and desist in publishing defamatory statements about our client. whether the statements are made by you or via third parties you have initially disseminated these statements too.

“Cause a public retraction and apology to be published by you on your Instagram and Twitter social media platforms and also two (2) widely read and circulating newspapers within our jurisdiction stating that your statements are inherently and utterly unjustified and baseless.

“Compensate our client in the sum of Two Hundred Million waits (200,000,000) only. through our law firm to alleviate his assaulted and battered image and the psychological trauma your statements have consequently brought upon him.”

Yesterday, Dbanj said in an Instagram post that was fed into Twitter, Dbanj said “Innocent until proven guilty…., STOP SOCIAL MEDIA TRIAL #SAY NO TO RAPE AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION”

A few weeks ago, Seyitan accused Dbanj of an alleged rape incident that happened few years ago. In the Twitter thread which she has since deleted, she said:

“she met D’Banj at an all-white party at Eko Atlantic with his then manager and a friend. In her account, she was told that D’Banj had taken a liking to her and was offered a large sum of money to sleep with him, to which she blatantly refused.

According to her Twitter thread, D’Banj allegedly barged into her room after being given the key by the hotel’s facility, and after this, she recounts disturbing details of the singer forcing himself on her.

Dbanj was mute on the matter, however, it is now apparent that the musician was planning a legal suit to defend his name.

He said in a legal notice he published on his Instagram account that:

“Today is exactly 1 week after my birthday and this will be the only time I will address the recent false allegations and lies from the pit of hell.”

“I have chosen to do so because the incident is a slap to my marriage and my beautiful wife, my entire family and those who believe in me. I did not want to dignify the slurs with a response but it appears my silence has empowered my accusers to think i have been scared into the shadows so I would like to state that This”

“Accusation are false and ludicrous and Have been handed over to my Legal Team, while the Nigerian Police is Investigating the Criminal aspect of it.
It’s unfortunate that this is coming a few weeks before the second anniversary of my late son Daniel And this well timed falsehood has reopened the painful scars of my deep loss.

“To my fans and loved ones , thanks for the support, your prayers and your positive comments . The truth will always prevail . God bless us all.” he said.

Last week, Dbanj announced that he sued the accuser to court asking for a damages of N100 million.
