Is Nigerian music star, Dapo Oyebanji, popularly known as D’Banj married? Well, the rumours were everywhere last year about a secret wedding to J-Town girl, Lineo Didi Killgrow. Social media went wild with everyone speculating whether one of Nigeria’s hottest bachelors was finally off the market.
Not long ago, the word out was that D’Banj had been in a relationship with Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji and that didn’t end well. He denied any involvement with the actress.
Anyway, back to his supposed wedding…last year when asked about getting married, the music star had said that even if he did get married, it would change nothing and no one was going to know about it. “If I marry, you would not hear about it. My wife is not looking for fame. The fame I have is already enough.”

Turns out D’Banj really might be married
Recently, the star finally publicly admitted to his marriage. On an interview with THE BEAT 99.9 FM, he talked about his reasons for keeping his marriage a secret. “I decided to keep my marriage to Didi a secret because based on experience relationships like this get mixed with media hypes and speculations and then it becomes complicated.”
He also talked about the events that led to the wedding:
“I want to thank my close friends, parent and families for keeping this secret. You know the pressure to get married was this high and mum told me she wants to see the girl I am dating and would want to marry. I told her that there was this babe and we didn’t want to marry yet but she insisted that she was the one for me that we should have a small ceremony and the rest is history. I’m glad I listened to her.”
D’Banj the Family man
We don’t know much about his life as a married man and there are no pictures of his wedding online. However, he did put up an Instagram post on May 26, 2017 where he told everyone about the birth of his son. There is also an instagram page for the boy @danieldthird.
So even though we don’t get a peek into as much of the pop star’s life as we would like to, we’re definitely going to be seeing more of the celebrity’s son.
