BNM Red Alert: Dammy Krane

Posted on Monday, August 8th, 2011 at 12:14 PM

By Nkechi Eze

Dammy Krane (Real Name: Oyindamola Johnson Emmanuel) was born on the 10th of Dec. 1993. {That makes him 17. #Pause. Wow!} Dammy is currently the youngest known artiste in the Naija music industry. He is set to take this industry by storm, so remember where you read about him first!

Dammy Krane was born to an Oluwakemi Osodi (who was a manager in the fuji music industry at the time). The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as Dammy began cultivating his knack for musical expression at an early age of six, singing in his church’s children’s choir. Dammy grew up listening to the likes of legendary Fela and Femi Kuti, Lagbaja, King Sunny Ade. He is also influenced by the sounds of modern greats like 2Face, D’Banj and Sauce Kid. Their inspiration is evident in Dammy’s cheeky lyrics.

In his first days in university in 2010, Dammy decided to take his “hobby” a little more serious and surprise the industry with his ability to merge all genres of music. Dammy’s efforts have not gone unnoticed by industry watchers. He has been nominated for Dynamix Awards 2010-Rookie of The Year, Encomium Top-Ten Most Promising Acts and Peak Awards 2011-Next Rated Artiste.

Today, Dammy is a singer, song writer and a hell of a good performer. He is not one of those singers who stand still while the backing track plays louder than his mic. If you were at the NYSC concert this summer, Dammy is the artiste who jumped into the crowd to give a woman a lap dance. Well, they don’t call him ‘Dammy Krane For The Girls’ for nothing!

Check out his tracks here and his special message for BellaNaija readers and future fans!

      I think he should be allowed to grow up.Whether he/we like it or not, he is still officially a kid! keep dem ladies @ arms length for now cos you’d have enough time to play with dem in the future if dat is what u wish. My 2cents!

    • THE AMAKA August 8, 2011 at 6:07 PM

      he is 17 but that picture is so wrong for his age. why are there girls throwing themselves at him, in a sexual manner, and why the hell is he in a bar, and the ladies are holding alcohol? what kind of message is he sending? why cant some people just act their age, its so damn annoying.

    • hajiya August 8, 2011 at 7:51 PM

      that picture is not so appropriate 4 a 17 yr old….haba!….yes he can b a child star without all these alcohol or ‘girls’ themed songs…make d boy grow up well abeg.

    • efe tommy August 8, 2011 at 8:01 PM

    • The Silver Conductor August 8, 2011 at 8:56 PM

      I do agree with some of the above comments, but I’ll just say keep doin what cha do, It all sounds good, but just be you, not what you see in all the videos and what other artist are doing, stay original.
