The Koko Master, D’banj is learning the hard way that celebrities can’t hop around town like normal people. Trouble began for the singer last Saturday, at Tin Can Port, Lagos, when he showed up for a video shoot in a Toyota RAV 4 with registration number KJA6158BE.
According to eyewitness accounts, as soon as the area boys laid eyes on him, they laid siege and demanded he settle them by parting with cash but before he could say Jackie Robinson, they deflated his tyres to his chagrin!
Obviously aware that there was no point arguing with the area boys who numbered over 50, D’banj had disembarked and they had escorted him to an ATM where he withdrew an undisclosed sum to settle them.
However, the area boys refused to disperse and stripped him of his wristwatch and other jewellery including his shoes. They only shifted ground after police men came to his rescue.
According to an eyewitness who spoke to Entertainer: “I’m so excited, D’banj came to Tin Can Island to shoot a video and guys saw him. They burst his tires and held him hostage. He had to embrace every one of them and later he took them to an ATM where he withdrew some cash for them and shared among them. I love D’banj; it’s good to be a star.”
