Sunday Aare, head of the outfit that manages the Mo’hits crew has risen to the defence of D’banj & Wande Coal on allegations by Osy Agah, a promoter, that the duo defrauded him to the tune of 1.3 million naira by not performing at an event in Delta state.

Aare, said he was surprised that Agah, a close friend of his artistes, could go to the media to express his grievance as the matter could have been resolved amicably. According to him, the money in question was an honorarium for D’banj for coming to the event, while the promoter insisted that he had paid the duo to perform at events for him. Their absence, Agah claimed, cast a slur on his reputation as he had informed top government officials, including the governor and deputy governor of Delta state and several politicians, that D’banj & Wande would be in Warri for the event.

Aare however debunked allegations of 1.287 million fraud leveled against D’banj & Wande Coal after failing to perform at the wedding of the vice chairman, Delta state water ways security, Mr. Emani Aji, who recently got married. Aare said that the allegations has cost the group a lot and at the same time expressed his dissatisfaction with Agah. He admitted that Emani Aji was a friend of the house and that he invited both artistes to perform at his wedding. “it’s not like we charged him”, Aare insisted.

“I have told them that we will make it up to them. I really don’t know why they are rubbishing us in the media,” he said.
