“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,” further said the pop singer.

On the 2nd of June, 2016, news went viral that D’banj had secretly gotten married to a 26-year-old woman known as Lineo Didi Kilgrow (read here). No photo and video of the wedding has been seen online.
