Following the arrest of Nigerian singer, Dammy Krane ,
with charges which has since gone viral on the Internet, which listed Krane ’ s crimes as ‘ Grand Theft 3 rd Degree / Armed / Conspiracy /Credit Card Forgery/Intent to Defraud, Sunday Scoop sought to ascertain from insiders close to the embattled singer what the true story is .
According to one of Dammy ’ s aunties, who lives in the US and who pleaded for her identity to be shielded, he was only a victim of circumstance .
“ We don ’ t stay in the same state over here but Dammy came to visit me just last week . I got the news of his detention on the Internet just like everybody else .
After making some calls , I was able to confirm that he was indeed arrested . He has been in the US for some time now and he has regularly been booked for shows all across America .
The guy he was arrested with had actually booked him for a show this weekend in Miami . And he ( Chukwuebuka ) was the one that paid for the jet and made hotel reservations with the stolen card details.” Speaking further , she said :
“ You know it is a usual thing for show promoters to book flight tickets for artistes, so one cannot blame Dammy in this situation . A lawyer has already been contacted but unfortunately , Dammy would have to stay in jail till Monday when they would be able to go to court to perfect bail conditions .”
However , this is contrary to the prevailing views on.social media , with many Nigerians lambasting Krane for trying to live and portray a lifestyle above his means.
