The model, sarah ofili recently addressed the rumour in an interview. This was her response
 “Over my dead body will D’banj sleep with me, that’s just gross. Have you seen my man Killz? I have enough six packs; I don’t need two and half.  I live in London and not Ikeja. We have never been friends let alone lovers. If he (D’banj) has problems with my man he should take it up with him like a man and leave my name out of this market crap. How come he has not responded that this rumour is a lie?

TWITTER DM LEAK: MI WAS MEANT TO COLLABORATE WITH SWIZZBEATS' EX, MASHONDA AFTER BET AWARDS?

Im not making mockery of Mr JUDE Abaga, just felt artistes should beware of impersonators on social networking sites like: twitter and facebook..stella damascus deactivated her facebook account because of impersonators, 9ice did the same. I woke up so early yesterday, trying to access my email inbox when i saw a mail sent in by an unknown person. I clicked to check what the message was all about, it entailed how this person impersonated mashonda on twitter to catch some famous people's attention including MI. At first, i never believed the story until i accessed his account (he sent in the password and username). Couldn't believe what i saw, this guy was arranging an appointment with MI in atl, USA some days to the BET awards show.
   According to what i learnt, swizz beatz ex-wife and baby mama, mashonda once used the username 'mashondaloyal' according to vibe.com, the american female RnB star and vibe.com columnist later deactivated the account due to the controversy trailing over her and alicia keys. This impersonator took the opportunity of using the dumped username and pretended as if mashonda had reactivated her account. This guy did some shady stuffs, like getting realwintertalks(a popular entertainment blog) and lilmo's bb pin( a popular radio OAP with verified account in washington). These were what i capturedfrom his DM.
