Nigerian singer Dammy Krane has been trending on social media recently following his alleged involvement in credit card scams.

Dammy Krane was previously signed to 2Face Idibia’s Hypertek records, but was kicked out of the label two years ago.

The matter was a quiet affair, as Hypertek reportedly didn’t want to dent their’s or Dammy Krane’s reputation.

According to a new interview by Saturday Beats, a source close to the issue has claimed that Krane was kicked out because he constantly breached his contract.

“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,” the source said.

The source added: “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.”

He was released on bail during the week, and has claimed innocence over all the allegations.
