Nigerian investigative journalist, Kiki Mordi has slammed Deji Banjo, known better with stage name, D’Banj for always bringing the death of his son into every conversation.
D’Banj lost his son, Daniel, to a tragic domestic accident at his residence in Lagos on June 25th, 2018. The 13-month-old boy was playing around the indoor swimming pool when he fell in and drowned.
In the light of the ongoing #EndSARS protest, Davido shared a sympathetic message to those who have lost loved ones to police brutality. According to him, he understands their pain because he has been there.
He wrote, “I know what it means to be in pain,to lose a child and a loved one..so I know the pain my brothers and sisters are going through and my heart is heavy . I pray God grants us the healing and restoration we so deeply need in our country and that our light can once again shine.”
Kiki Mordi, who wasn’t having none of that, condemned him for using his son’s death to ’emotionally blackmail’ Nigerians.
She wrote, “Everyday you use your child to emotionally blackmail Nigerians. You’re very scary.”
Twitter users have criticized her for being insensitive and rude.
