Not only are nigerians on twitter taking a stand against rape, but they are also urging victims of rape to speak out. On Wednesday May 3rd, a talent/model scout, benjamin Ese, alleged that dbanj raped his friend Seyitan two years ago. The allegation is coming a day after dbanj strongly condemned rape on his instagram page. The koko master joined the campaign against sexual violence and demanded justice for rape victims in an instagram post. Ese challenged the singer and said he had no right to speak against rape having performed the act in the past.

The victim, a nigerian lady identified as aunty Seyitan on the microblogging platform, twitter, later came out to give a detailed narration of her alleged sexual abuse encounter with Bangalee. Seyitan (@Seyitannn_) in a series of tweets narrated how she had been invited to an all-white party at eko atlantic by dbanj’s manager. She also shared screenshots and a website link as evidence to support her claim – according to her, she was quiet for so long because of dbanj’s celebrity status. dbanj was yet to respond to the allegation at the time of this report.

“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.

so i slept off within 5/6am 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.”
