Almost 48 hours after news broke on social media that Nigerian pop star D’banj had a secret marriage ceremony in his Lekki residence on Saturday, the singer and his team are still worryingly quiet.
The Saturday he was rumoured to be holding a secret marriage ceremony was the day a birthday bash was held in honour of his father. A photo he shared on social media to confirm that it was his father’s birthday bash did not seem to quell the secret wedding rumour.
In the photo, a ring could be seen on his finger. Though he’s been seen wearing fashion rings of late, the ring seen on his finger in the photo is not the same as the fashion ring he’d been seen wearing.
The rumour mill has it that D’banj’s ‘secret bride’ is Didi Kilgrow, born to an American/Nigerian father and a South African mother.
Since the rumour broke, there has been no statement from D’banj or his team as to its veracity. His social media handles have also been very quiet.
D’banj once expressed his desire to have a secret wedding for privacy reasons.
In an interview with The Punch newspaper earlier this year, he said: “I will tell you the truth, I am not married but if I am, nobody will hear about it. It is going to be a very quiet wedding because I am tired of people asking me that question. It is my personal life and it is not going to change my music or brand.”
The above interview says a lot about why the rumours started; that is even if it’s a rumour. However, it remains a rumour until confirmed.
