D’banj is beginning the year 2015 on a positive note with plans of his 10th year anniversary already in motion. In fact, the first leg is kicking off on January 31, 2015 with a party in Lagos tagged Feeling The Nigga Weekend.
However, the yet-to-be-addressed debt mess from the last quarter of 2014 continues to trail Bangalee, as he prefers to be called now.
Recall hat NET exclusively broke the news in November 2014 that a top oil and gas industry player, Henry Ojogho, alleged that D’banj obtained a loan of over N60m from him in January 2013 and has not paid back the said sum despite signing an undertaking to do so.
All those thinking it was just a case of slander aimed at the Nigerian music superstar can now see the evidence in the matter. With the case filed in court with suit number: LD/ADR/445/14 with hearing expected to commence on Monday, January 26, 2015 at the Multi-door Courthouse in Obalende, Lagos with Justice Mrs Oyebanji as the presiding judge.
Already, the writ of summons and other relevant documents in the suit have been posted on D'Banj's residence on Osaro Isokpan Street in Lekki Phase 1. The pasting was done by the court bailiff on December 17, 2014 at about 1:35p.m, pursuant to order of court made on November 12, 2014 having been satisfied that the defendant was evading been served the notice.
However with the on-going strike by the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) which is over 2 weeks old now, the case may be adjourned if the strike is not called off before January 26, 2015, which is the hearing date.
