Even after he gave them money, his wristwatch, jewelry and shoes were all taken by the area boys. The ‘Confidential’ crooner only got breathing space when Policemen arrived on the scene and rescued him from the hoodlums.
An eyewitness recalled the experience thus: “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.”
After this incident, we are sure D’banj has learnt that a celebrity of his calibre can’t just waltz into any area of Lagos and not expect to be mobbed by hoodlums.
