D’banj, the award-winning Nigerian singer, has revealed that Kayswitch, his younger brother, was recently kidnapped.


The 41-year-old spoke when he featured on the latest episode of Afrobeats Intelligence, a podcast hosted by Joey Akan, the music journalist.

During the show, D’banj reflected on how Kayswitch, born Kehinde Oyebanjo, inspired ‘Face Show’, his latest song.

“My creativity comes so natural. Let me tell you about how I recorded ‘Face Show‘…I was in Abuja before I got the Nigerian Idol gig and my younger brother Kayswitch said one line, and I loved it,” he said.


“He said ‘your face show’. When he sees me doing something, he will repeat the line and I grabbed that…he inspired it (Face Show).”

When asked how he is doing, D’banj said the fast-rising singer “has been through a lot” while opening up about his abduction.

D’banj, however, did not provide more details on the abduction.


“He (Kayswitch) is wonderful, he’s actually in Abuja. Actually he has a new EP which he is dropping soon. He has been through a lot, but we kept it out of public glare,” he said.

“Recently, he was even kidnapped, I don’t know if it’s right for me to put it out there. But he’s fine, you’ll be hearing from him very soon.”

Kayswitch is signed to DB records label, which is owned by D’banj.
