While Heritage Bank has not confirmed the rumour, it would be recalled the bank signed Dbanj on his 40th birthday just few weeks ago.
KanyiDaily recalls that two weeks ago, Seyitan narrated how Dbanj raped her during an all-white party in 2018, at Glee hotel in Victoria Island, Lagos State.
Although D’Banj has denied the rape allegations via his Instagram handle and even sued the lady for a N100 million compensation, reports circulating the social media indicates that his deal with Heritage Bank have come to a halt.
At the time of filing this report, the management of Heritage Bank has not issued an official statement to confirm his suspension as their ambassador, but reports on Twitter claims that the partnership with singer has been cancelled.
Thank you Heritage Bank, I mailed them from a dozen different emails yesterday. The fact that Dbanj used his influence to detain and silence the lady is ENOUGH REASON for every brand to drop him. #DbanjSuspended pic.twitter.com/AUbE2Bx0pp

Heritage bank cutting ties with Dbanj should teach you a lesson that some people don't really care about you, they are just sticking with you cos they benefit from you and once they sense that things are not going well for you, they will jump bus.. #DbanjSuspended pic.twitter.com/UJc0DNHHUE

What does it profit you to pull down a man who hasn't been proven guilty by a law court. Most celebrities were victims of such. Is this a result of failed trust in our judicial system, we must let justice be served appropriately.#DbanjSuspended pic.twitter.com/873IgLRXya

I just heard that the Ambassadorial deal Dbanj got on his birthday with Heritage bank has been suspended.
A good move from Heritage bank?#DbanjSuspended

Whether or not Dbanj is guilty of the accusations leveled against him, I honestly think the manner in which he handled it was careless.

#DbanjSuspended this stupid idea of believing what ever a woman says expecially when it has to do with rape allegations is a bad culture from the western world to Africa, it would be proper for a competent court to find him guilty before all this nonsense.

Social media has bullied Heritage bank into suspending the deal they have with Dbanj. Wait for those hypocrites to start showing fake sympathy after their cyber mob actions on him without fair hearing #DbanjSuspended

And wouldn't it be time to work against disloyalty?
Heritage Bank is disloyal.
No investigation, no case made but we got suspension?
What are the consequences of disloyalty?

It’s like you’re making my freaking point for me, man! It’s not yet confirmed and that’s why he needs to be suspended UNTIL the truth is unveiled! What’s so hard to comprehend? It wasn’t canceled but suspended UNTIL the truth is out. Jeez! 🤦🏻♀️ #DbanjSuspended

At the end of the day, if Dbanj happens to be innocent, I hope you'll be able to forgive yourself for crucifying him too fast just coz you were too dumb to think and use your head but preferred to listen "they said they said" and act on emotions #DbanjSuspended
