The mother of Nigerian singer, Dammy Krane, who has been accused of having allegedly stole a credit card from the United state has released a statement concerning the accusations on her son.
The mother who is hoping for a positive outcome of the case informed everyone that there has been a great misunderstanding as Dammy Krane had no idea what happened because the “show promoter” had purchased his flight tickets and hotel bookings stating that “hell broke loose” on the issue because Dammy Krane is popular.
The mother of the Amin crooner used this opportunity to advice other artistes to be careful and more vigilant to issues concerning their affairs especially when an external person is handling it on their behalf as they can be involved in something they have no idea about, thereby ruining their reputation.
Read her statement below;
“As an artiste, promoters book your hotel stays and often buy your destination tickets. It’s never once crossed our hearts as a performing entertainment family, to have to verify that the sources of bookings are legitimate. And please, keep in mind that we’ve been in the industry for almost 15 years. Then came the unfortunate past Friday, when Dammy Krane got arrested trying to board a flight from Maimi to Washington: Maryland. His ticket and hotel bookings were fraudulently purchased by the next show promoter (s). And because of Dammy Krane’s fame, all accusatory hell, broke loose.
We thank God for His goodness and the great spirit of truth. He will have his day in court to clear his name. He will give his personal press release shortly l, however, have decided to speak up against insinuations of fraudulency and grand theft. Dammy is a true gentle and honest citizen of our planet, and remains a good ambassador for not just the music industry, but Nigeria as a whole.
I also will like to seize this rare opportunity to warn all promoters, entertainers, the music industry ,the performing arts world & all travel prone individuals to , from now on
1.) Buy your tickets yourself.
2.) Ensure by prior verification that your ticket and hotel reservations match the purchaser’s info.
How? By declining emergency arrangements that do not give up to 24 to 48 hours to allow you call the airlines and hotels for verification. Remember to always give the option for promoters or show organizers to buy all bookings and must accompany with the booking profiles : the names used for bookings, and phone numbers must match your designated or named offers, or they will need to send the cash in their verifiable names to your business account.”
