In an interview with THE BEAT 99.9 FM on Thursday, August 3, 2017, D'banj said he kept his marriage a secret because he didn't want the complications of a celebrity relationship.

"I want to thank my close friends, parent and families for keeping this secret. You know the pressure to get married was this high and mum told me she wants to see the girl I am dating and would want to marry. I told her that there was this babe and we didn't want to marry yet but she insisted that she was the one for me that we should have a small ceremony and the rest is history. I'm glad I listened to her" further said the pop singer.

On June 2, 2016, it was widely reported that D'banj had gotten married to a woman known as  Lineo Didi Kilgrow. No photo and video of the wedding have been seen online.
