Don Jazzy, MI Abaga & Tiwa Savage React As Dโ€™Banj Reportedly Arrests His Rape Accuser, Seyitan

Don Jazzy, Tiwa Savage, and MI Abaga have all reacted to the rape accusations leveled against their colleague, Dโ€™Banj.
Dโ€™Banj had reportedly had his accuser, one Seyitan who accused him of rape back in 2018 arrested by the police. Dโ€™Banj allegedly made her sleep in the cell with criminals and made her reenact her statement. This angered Nigerians who called him out and even vowed to cancel him by making him lose his endorsements. This also generated reactions from MI Abaga, Tiwa Savage and Don Jazzy.
Tiwa Savage who recently set up a platform that helps rape victims find their voice reacted to the reports stating that the story is heartbreaking for her and clearly stated that her view about rape is still the same


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.

MI also took to his Twitter to commend those who have worked tirelessly in the fight against intimation and gender-based violence. He stated that him not speaking out would mean that he supports the women to shut up and not tell their story

Society will not improve if we do not tear down the systemic methods by which women and girls who accuse people of violating them are silenced. There can be no sacred cows on this issue..

We cannot say that we stand with women, and then be silent towards actions that say to all women clearly, it is better to be silent than to speak.. any abuse of power and authority can not be accepted in this regard

To the brave women like Kiki Mordi @AyodejiOsowobi and @ozzyetomi who used their platform to fight over the last few hours.. thank you for your courage and leadership.. to all organizations silently working on the behalf of victims of gender based violence.. thank you

Don Jazzy on the other hand who is a very close friend of Dโ€™banj revealed that the case saddens him but he is no competent judge nor investigator nor can he provide justice. Jazzy added that no matter how long a lie lasts, the truth will always prevail.

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. 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. 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.
