Following the rape and murder of Miss Uwa, a UNIBEN student, the issue of rape has been trending on social media with the hashtag, #SayNoToRape.

As rape victims begin to speak out on the ordeals they faced with a forceful male individual, a handful of male celebrities are not left out in the stories.

While it may be hard for some of these rape victims to come out to call out celebrities who forcefully had their way with them, some have found the courage to do so, and social media is helping amplify their voices.

A lady identified as Seyi has accused Iconic Nigerian singer, Oladapo Daniel Oyebanjo, better known by his stage name, DBanj of rape.

This accusation came after the singer joined the campaign against sexual violence and demanded justice for rape victims in a post on his Instagram page.

The Koko Master post read: “#NoMeansNo, we need to raise our sons in the right way and teach them to love and respect women."

Seyi-Dban, the lady who accused Dbanj of rape

According to the lady, the assault occurred only two years ago. She said Dbanj offered her N200k at an event to sleep with him, but she refused.

She then said the singer went to the hotel where she’d lodged for the night and took a spare key from the receptionist, entered her room and raped her.

Seyi shared a series of tweets on her page and WhatsApp conversation from 2019 talking about the incident with a friend. According to her, she so angry seeing a rapist being an advocate for rape.

She wrote alongside a screenshot of the Whatsapp conversation:

“I was invited for an all-white party at Eko Atlantic(splash off)which was an all-night party on the 30th of December 2018, by franklin Dbanj ex-manager at that time and I went with my friend then named Laide.

"When I got to the party, I met a girl at the party named Oyin, who was with a guy who happens to be Dbanj’s friend. She asked who I came with. I told her the person I came with already left.

"When I was leaving Oyin, and I exchanged number, and she asked where I was lodged I told her Glee hotel in VI, and she said it was the same hotel she was lodged and I asked her if she could drop me off she said that wasn’t a problem.

"On getting to the hotel, Oyin called me when I got to my room. And told me Dbanj saw me at the party and he wanted to be with me for the night, and I was offered a sum of money, but I bluntly refused because I wasn’t interested".

She continued by saying "So I slept off within 5/6 am and pls note (I'm a naked sleeper) and woke up and found Dbanj in my room already, and I asked him what he was doing in my room he didn't say a word and *asked if I was a baby* and started fingering me,

I went ahead to threaten him that I was going to shout he said if I shout I'll leave the hotel naked, Dbanj raped me.

When he left, and I got to see he came in with an extra key (card) and I later found out that Dbanj lodged all his staffs in the hotel. Then I called my supposed friend Oyin who I saw at the party if she planned with Dbanj she said No.

She came downstairs to meet me where I was crying. She asked us to go upstairs to meet her guy, who was Dbanj's friend. When I got there the guy was disappointed and begged me to keep quiet and promised me Dbanj will call me and apologize.

And he gave my friend 100dollars to give me to take medication.

I'm so livid and mad seeing a rapist being an advocate for rape. This is my story and I know there are lots of girls who can't come out to say their story. Don't be ashamed to say your story it took me 2 years to write my Rape story #wearetired."
