Dapo Oyebanjo Daniel, also known as Dbanj, is set to welcome a son with his wife, Didi Lineo.
The superstar singer who is presently in London for his Koko Concert
unvailed the amusing news in an interview with OAP Shopsy of Beat FM London.
In his words; “I am going to be a father in a few months after praying for restoration
after the sad incident. And we are expecting a boy,”
The couple lost their one-year-old son, Daniel Oyebanjo III, 14 months ago
after he reportedly drowned at a pool in their residence in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Few months after the incident, the singer dedicated a song to his wife.
D’banj also unvailed that; he never thought he would ever lose a child and that what happened really broke him.
During the interview, the superstar musician appreciated everyone that supported him and his spouse throughout the trying time.
He said, “First, I want to thank everyone out there who has supported us, but the truth is
in everything we do we need to give thanks to God and more importantly, I believe there is God
that granted me the grace and mercy over my family and my wife to be able to be here today.
It’s not something you wish for your worst enemy.
To lose a child is not something you think about, and I have never thought about it before.”
He also unvailed that he only attended therapy once with his spouse but stopped going after it “brought up a lot.”
“If I told you I thought about it, unlike other things you asked me and I told you
I am focused and I go in, this was one that broke me.
It was just that it just took the grace of God and a bit of therapy.
I think I went for therapy once and I said this no be my style
because it was bringing out so many things.”
The artiste also expressed gratification,
that he had been able to channel the pains into creating good music for his fans.
“I am happy that over time I have been able to channel that into my music, which is more important for me.
You haven’t heard any of them yet but very soon…because the most important thing that I believe,
and pray for, is restoration. I know that no matter how many time I tell my wife that everything is okay,
God has to give us restoration.”
The former Mohits artiste also declared on having a two-part series album.
He said one part of the album will address the issues he faced when he lost his son,
while the other part is his “every day” rhythm.
The musician newly made his Nollywod debut in Jade Osiberu’s movie titled ‘Sugar Rush’
which will hit the cinemas in December.
