D’banj, the ace Nigerian singer, has recalled how he got married to Lineo Didi Kilgrow, his wife.


In a recent interview on TVC’s Your View, the singer said his mother secretly planned his marriage during his father’s birthday party.

The 43-year-old said his mother asked him to bring his girlfriend to meet the family and inquired if he was ready for marriage.

The Kokomaster said then, he was not ready for marriage because he had envisioned a more glamorous wedding.


“It was my mum, she actually planned everything. She told me don’t worry, this is what we are going to do, so my dad’s birthday is July 2nd, so we were going to celebrate his birthday,” he said.

“She told me to bring the girl you are dating, bring her, let’s see her and are you ready to marry her? I said I was ready but I was not ready right now, that I wanted to do a big thing. She said you are going to do that big thing but just bring her for Daddy’s birthday.

“As we finished Daddy’s birthday, they rolled Daddy’s cake and brought out a ‘happy wedding’ cake. The priest was as surprised as I was. And till today I thank her every day for how so far ahead that she saw it and how I see what social media does now.”


D’banj and Lineo tied the knot in 2016.
