Late in the night on Saturday, July 2, 2016 I got a mail saying a story had come out that pop star D'banj had gotten married.

Quickly jumping on the news I read everything about D'banj's secret private wedding and his bride, a 25-year-old woman named Lineo Didi Kilgrow who has such an exotic ancestry that you might find it very hard to believe that she truly exists.

After digesting the story I immediately started to find out more about Lineo Didi Kilgrow. Now this is what the world knows about her- she has Nigerian and South African roots as well an American citizenship and she grew up in Jos and is said to be the half-sister of MTV VJ Samantha Walsh. Kilgrow is currently studying in the University of Abuja and started dating D'banj in January 2015.

In this day and age social media is the best place to find anyone you are looking for. A quick search on Facebook yielded no result of anyone by that name. The next stop was Twitter- and no one with that name has a Twitter account. The last stop was Instagram, a haven for the modern Nigerian babe who does not want to be all over social media but still wants an online presence. Unfortunately no one named Lineo Didi Kilgrow had an Instagram account as at Sunday, July 3, 2016.

As for her half-sister Samantha Walsh, her Instagram account is private but those following her say that she hasn't posted any photo of her half-sister or her marriage to D'banj on her Instagram page.

I tried my luck again on Monday July 4, 2016 on Instagram and I found something very interesting. There was a new account aptly named lineodidikilgrow. The avatar of the account is a never-seen-photo of the 25-year-old beauty. Sadly this account has not posted any photo yet despite having 106 followers.

Surely this must be a troll of some sort but the nagging thing about that Instagram account is how the person got his or her hands on a photo of Line Didi Kilgrow that is not the Internet. Someone who is close to the story is actually playing a game.

Frustrated by my results on social media I decided to ask around. A source who has worked with D'banj was baffled about the wedding story and said he had no idea about the whole thing. He too was shocked about the news. I spoke to another person who is rather high up in the industry and he had nothing to say about it also.

Then comes to D'banj. Later in the day the entertainer casually posts photos of himself on Instagram (he has since deleted one of them) and says nothing about the reports. Come on D'banj. No one knows if this is a clever ploy from D'banj or publicity stunt. I would like to think D'banj really got married last week Saturday because of the bread crumbs he threw a few months ago.

In a recent video of him congratulating his stylist Swank Jerry D'banj hinted that he has gotten married. Also in an exclusive interview he did with THE NET seven months ago D'banj said he had gotten married. Sigh...so much confusion from Banga Lee.

His antics are however taking the spotlight from his wife Lineo Didi Kilgrow. People are curious about her, they want to know about the woman who made D'banj settle down. As of now there is little about here. The search continues.
