This is the second anniversary of the death of D’banj’s first son. Nigerian journalist Kemi Olunloyo took to Instagram to remember Daniel Oyebanjo III.
IT IS JUNE 25TH AGAIN😢
🇳🇬🇺🇸 As a journalist I have to know exact timelines in everything. This is what my training consisted of. Nigerian singer D’banj lost his first son in a swimming pool drowning two years ago today.
I was on my way to the @bet awards as I was the network’s Canadian hip-hop correspondent while living in Toronto. @iambangalee was already there at the awards venue, hotel etc preparing. Daniel Oyebanjo III, who turned one in May 2018 died in a swimming pool at the singer’s Lagos home on Jun 25, 2018 two years ago today.
My heart goes to Lineo Kilgrow Oyebanjo his wife, Dapo and his family. It is heartwrenching to lose a child. May we NEVER bury a child in our lifetime.
EXCLUSIVELY Speaking to Oyebanjo a few days ago, I asked him about memories of his child and that moment. He told me he left social media for a long time, stopped recording as he had “lost everything that mattered”😢 He was very devastated and his wife and himself had to and still attend COUNSELING THERAPY on the sad death. He told me his second son will turn one in September 2020. He has never shared photos of him.
Stay strong @iambangalee and Mrs Didi Lineo Oyebanjo ♥️♥️♥️ #ripdanieloyebanjo the 3rd seen in the first Pictures in the late boys Instagram page😢 Pls leave a message of hope and love for him as I PERSONALLY FEEL this rape allegation was carefully crafted to coincide with his 40th birthday, Heritage Bank deal and son’s death anniversary. VERY WICKED PEOPLE😠
The singer is facing a rape accusation leveled against him by a former model. Kemi Olunloyo thinks it was not rape but consensual sex.
