Mother of Nigerian singer, Dammy Krane who is currently facing charges in the US for credit card fraud and grand theft has declared that her son is innocent.
In a Facebook post, Elizabeth Oshodi said Krane’s tickets and hotel bookings were fraudulently purchased by a show promoter.
She wrote; “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.”
“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 truly gentle and honest citizen of our planet and remains a good ambassador for not just the music industry, but Nigeria as a whole.”
She took the opportunity to warn other artistes against emergency arrangements and to ensure prior verification of their reservations.
Krane reportedly appeared in court for bail hearings on Monday.
