In what is becoming a growing trend of fraud and impersonation in the Nigerian music industry, Dammy Krane’s PR has come out to warn people not to do business with fraudulent people.
Read his statement below:
A couple hours ago, I received two consecutive phone calls about a “Dammy Krane” on Blackberry Messenger otherwise known as BBM who has been impersonating the real Dammy Krane hereby defrauding unknowing upcoming artistes and record labels of their hard earned cash.
The two calls I received narrated how they have fallen victim of this individual who portrays him/herself as Dammy Krane. They want to feature the real Dammy Krane on songs and they were requested to pay huge amount of money into a first bank account opened in the real name of Skales of Empire Mates Entertainment.
Immediately after I was briefed about the occurrence, I put a call out to the young man Skales who obviously knows nothing of this incidence.
An account was opened in his real name Raoul John Njeng Njeng with account number 3069973058 in a bid to defraud unknowing people who intend to work with Dammy Krane or Skales.
This is a wakeup call to everyone in the entertainment industry and the music factory specifically that it is absolutely wrong to pay cash into any artistes or manager’s account prior to a meeting with either or both of them.
The ideal thing is to reach out to the label, artiste manager or the artiste if possible and a meeting is set up to enable due process to get the respective artiste for whatever reason.
This announcement also serves as a disclaimer by Skales that he knows nothing about the fake Dammy Krane on BBM who opened an account in his name to defraud people of their hard earned cash and all activities as regards his music career should be sourced from the label Empire Mates Entertainment. The general public should please take note.
