This past week has been probably the first time pop singer, Dammy Krane, trended on social media networks especially Twitter and Google. Sadly, it was for the very wrong reason as it was reported that he was arrested for credit card fraud and grand theft in far away US.
A source very close to the troubled singer, in a chat with Saturday Beats said part of his woes was his expulsion from Tuface’s Hypertek Records.
It was gathered that the singer was kicked out of the record label which brought him to limelight about two years ago and ever since then, he had been searching for sponsors to help with his career. The singer, the source added, travelled to the US to find ways he could enhance his career which unfortunately landed him in jail.
His exit from the record label was silent because it was felt that it was not good for both the image of the singer and the record label.
“Dammy Krane had left Tuface’s Hypertek record since February 2015. Tuface is trying to build a reputable company and they do not want any negative news. That is why they did not announce his exit from the label. They had issues with him over the way he was doing collaborations with other artistes. It was not part of the contract that he signed, so technically it is a breach of contract. They gave him several warnings which he did not adhere to, so they had no choice but to terminate the contract that they had with him. They did not make any noise about it because they did not want anything that would dent his image and that of the company. He was in the US to get new investor to help his career and also shoot some videos because he already had new material. He was also meant to use the opportunity to embark on his US tour,” the source said.
