D’banj recounted that during his father’s birthday celebration, his mother asked him to bring his girlfriend to meet the family and inquired if he was thinking about marriage.

At the time, D’banj was not ready for marriage, as he envisioned a grand wedding.

He said to his surprise, his mother had secretly arranged a wedding ceremony for him on his father’s birthday, revealing the surprise with a ‘Happy Wedding’ cake during the celebration.

However, D’banj expressed his gratitude for his mother’s foresight, acknowledging the difficulties often faced in celebrity marriages.

“My mother planned everything. She told me don’t worry, this is what we are going to do, so my dad’s birthday is July 2nd, so we were going to celebrate his birthday.
“She told me to bring the girl I was dating so they could all see her and questioned if I would marry her. I told her I wasn’t ready, that I wanted to do a big thing. She told me I would definitely do a big wedding, but first, I should bring her for Daddy’s birthday.
“As we finished Daddy’s birthday, they rolled Daddy’s cake and brought out ‘Happy Wedding’. My brother, D’Prince, was there, and he also was as surprised as I was. And till today, I thank her every day of how so far ahead she saw it and how I see social media stories”.
