DAMMY KRANE: 3 valuable lessons my arrest, detention for credit card theft taught me

Popular Nigerian singer Oyindamola Johnson Emmanuel, known in music circles as Dammy Krane, has revealed that his arrest and imprisonment for credit card theft and fraud in the United States in 2017 was indeed an eye-opener.

The singer, composer and performer in an interview with a popular newspaper noted that he learnt three important lessons during the period which has turned out to be his darkest moments yet.

‘‘I learnt three very important things after that experience; to appreciate God, family and my fans. Meanwhile, there are a lot of friends turned family,’’ he said.

The singer also added that; ‘‘I have something I always do when it comes to social media; I concentrate more on the positive comments than the negative ones. That someone has taken out his time to write something nice is something to appreciate.’’

After a series of court appearances, the beleaguered singer became a free man in August 2017, after he was acquitted of credit card fraud by a United States Court sitting in Miami.

The much maligned musician who appeared in the court room of the Justice Building, Room 4-3, with his defense attorney Courtney Erik in the case presided over by Migiel De La O, the judge, became a free man after the court struck out charges of credit card forgery, armed conspiracy and grand theft charges leveled against him.

Recall that Dammy Krane and his alleged accomplice were arrested by security operatives in the US in May 2017, after he was allegedly to have used stolen credit card details to book a jet for a trip to Miami from a private jet leasing company known as Tap Jets.

Were he to have been found guilty of the charges put before him, the singer could have been faced with penalties that may include prison, probation, fines, restitution, as well as a permanent criminal record.
