5 weeks ago, Dbanj posted a video of his kid walking by the pool and these are some of the comments from people.
Not putting blames on anyone but these celeb should take caution about people’s comments not just to give a savage clapback. pic.twitter.com/klgp8ikQNA

Someone said Dbanj should be arrested for "allowing his kid to be drowned".
You see, there's this thing with Nigerians. They don't know where to stop. They don't know where to tell their empty brains to stop. They don't know how to stop. They don't know lines or boundaries.

I pray God will give DBanj and his wife peace that will override the blames and guilt that will plague them the rest of their lives. Everyone will keep rewinding moments before it happened and trying to figure out what they could have done better.
