NEXIM Bank appoints D’banj new brand ambassador as rape charges settle


The Nigerian Export-Import (NEXIM) Bank on Tuesday unveiled  Nigerian pop star, Dapo Oyebanjo, also known as D’banj as its brand ambassador, one year after the pop star battled allegations of rape on social media. 

CEO Abubakar Bello said while announcing the appointment on Instagram that the D’banj was named to promote the bank’s products.

“This is to further create awareness and sensitisation on the bank’s newly-launched Women and Youth Export Facility (WAYEF) and Small and Medium Enterprise Export Facility (SMEEF). 

Mr Bello said the bank’s projects were aimed at empowering women and young people in the entrepreneurial sector.

The deal with D’banj followed several weeks of deliberations and advisory consultations with the ‘Koko Master’ in repositioning the values and visions of the bank in the wider society.

D’banj, who also took to social media to announce his partnership with the bank, described it as a welcomed development.

The appointment comes barely a year after the artist faced rape allegations from a Lagos-based woman Seyitan Babatayo.
