Contrary to debt mess allegation level against Nigeria pop singer Dapo Oyebanjo, popular know as D’banj by MindHub Technologies, for issuing bounce check and owning debt of $240,000, pop star still keep silence to the false rumours going viral online over the past few days now.
He took to social media couple of days ago, to denies the false rumours of owning any investors money.
Silence … Hear is my response to the false rumors http://t.co/Akyap7adOW

The only alleged “false rumors” is floating around is that D’Banj , has been sued by MindHub Technologies, for alleged of outstanding debt.
According to Attorney and entertainment blogger Ms. Uduak Oduok, says that “Silence” as a statement on twitter will make this lawsuit or so-called rumor go away.
What Would Make Sense for D’Banj to Do is:
1. Hire a competent PR team to help him, at this point.
2. D’Banj, by now, should have hired a lawyer in Nigeria to make appearances for him in court and handle his case. D’Banj does not have to be in the country once he hires a lawyer. His lawyer will receive service on his behalf and handle any lawsuits filed against him, and possibly also file countersuits against the Plaintiff. All these seeming “bakan bakan” handling of his case, I don’t get it. The problem does not go away once a case enters the court system. You either ignore it and face a default judgment against you, meaning the Plaintiff wins automatically, or you face and possibly beat the opposition, or settle out of court.
His approach truly does create a “Double Wahala Part 2″ for him.
3. Finally, a legal colleague has written a post I find interesting about investors in the Nigerian music business. The post tagged ” THE NIGERIAN MUSIC BUSINESS: THE ILLUSION OF SUCCESS’‘.
