Don Jazzy, CEO of Mavin Records, has weighed into the rape allegation involving D’banj, a singer, and Seyitan Babatayo, a Twitter user.


Seyitan had accused D’banj of sexually assaulting her in a Lagos hotel in 2018. The singer cum entrepreneur would, however, deny the claim, describing it as a “slap on his marriage”.

The lady was said to have been arrested by the police on Tuesday.

On Thursday, the matter assumed a dramatic turn after Seyitan deleted the tweets wherein she made the allegations against the singer.


The development has since opened the floodgates of reactions on social media with many Nigerians divided as to who is actually telling the truth between the two of them.

But contributing to the heated discussion on his Twitter page, Don Jazzy said that the truth surrounding the situation will eventually surface, adding that “one of them is certainly a victim.”

He also reiterated his stand against rape and “injustices against women, children and everyone including oppression.”


“No matter how long a lie lasts, the truth will always prevail. The fact is that one of them is a victim and the law will protect that person. I stand firmly against rape and all injustices against women, children and everyone including oppression,” he wrote.


The music superstar went on to call on those who have been sexually abused in the past to voice out, while enjoining relevant authorities to ensure the truth prevails.

“I urge all victims to speak out and report to the appropriate quarters. It is also important that every accused person is given an opportunity to set the facts straight,” he added.

“For most of us, all we have is the good name our parents have given us and we must protect and bequeath to our own successors.

“This particular case saddens my soul but I am not competent to investigate or judge this matter. I implore the police to thoroughly investigate and courts to do justice.”

In the same vein, Tiwa Savage, award-winning singer, described the news as “heartbreaking”.

“I hear you all and even though this is heartbreaking for me, my view is still the same. I stand strong with the victims of all sexual abuse so I say this: 1. Victims should always speak out n speak their truth 2. those found guilty must be punished to d full extent of the law,” she also wrote on Twitter.
