Dapo Oyebanjo, iconic Nigerian singer popularly known as D’banj, got married to Didi Kilgrow at the weekend, TheCable has learnt from a source very close to the artiste.
Over the weekend, there were series of unconfirmed reports of the marriage, but an insider confirmed to TheCable on Monday that the wedding took place at the family home of D’banj in Maryland on Saturday, June 2.
He revealed that the wedding (registry and traditional) was so private that only nuclear family members of both D’banj and Didi were in attendance.
“D’banj has been in a serious relationship with Didi for the past year and he was a regular visitor to her house in Lekki Phase 1; he visited at least two to three times every week.”
Didi is the step sister of Samantha Walsh, famous for hosting the ‘Big Friday Show’ with Falz on MTV base and they both reside in the Lekki house located on Kafayat Abdulrazak street.
The former home of Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji — an ex-girlfriend of D’banj’s — is a stone’s throw away from Didi’s house.
It was also confirmed that the guests were unaware they were attending a wedding, as it was previously announced that the event was to mark the birthday of Dbanj’s father.
Twenty-five-year-old Didi and her sister had their upbringing in Jos; she is an undergraduate of the University of Abuja.
In December 2015, D’banj had disclosed to journalists that his marriage was imminent, saying: “I’m going to marry very soon and you will get to meet her.”
Back in April 2016, while speaking in an interview with MTV Base, he said: “I am tired of people asking me that question. That’s my personal life and its not going to change my music.
“I’m not trying to get married to enter another phase of my life the way they have classified my other colleagues. When you want to marry they just put it like you want to retire. No, its not going to change anything.
“If I marry, you would not hear about it. My wife is not looking for fame. The fame I have is already enough.”
The insider further revealed that D’banj’s car, a black Seqoiua jeep — with regular plate numbers — brought Didi home on Saturday night after the secret wedding and she seemed visibly excited.
