Jollof Rice & Champagne…Dammy Krane’s Private Jet lifestyle before Arrest



Everyone is talking about the shocking breaking news which unfolded just a few hours ago. Nigerian music star Dammy Krane was arrested in the United States of America after a private jet company – TapJets reported his use of stolen credit card numbers to book their services. Dammy was arrested alongside Chukwuebuka Gabriel Ilochonwu.

BellaNaija - American Private Jet Service claim Dammy Krane booked a Flight with Fake Credit Cards

While the embattled musician’s official Twitter account posted vague tweets distancing him from the allegations, the evidence of his arrest such as the arrest records, mugshots and confirmation from the private jet company show that he was indeed arrested and is currently being detained.

Disappointed fans have bombarded Dammy Krane’s social media accounts with various messages. They are particularly upset because the musician had been posting so many photos and videos of his jet set lifestyle over the past few weeks.

What are your thoughts on the unfolding saga?

      Only Davido in Nigeria’s entertainment industry can live this lifestyle and get away with it, why? because I believe his wealthy father owns a private jet. David in his own right is really a super star. Everyone, including dbanj with all his swag cannot sustain a jet setting lifestyle. Normally, the studios or production companies arrange this for them and Naija entertainers seize the opportunity to take all the pictures and post it on social media when they are fortunate to even see one. Chartering a pj per hour is bloody expensive. Some billionaires don’t even own theres, they rent them or share ownership.

    ask ur self what are they singing or acting that they are able to fly private jet regularly and buy expensive cars and houses and luxury clothes etc even many established, well known oyinbo musicians and actors fly commercial to their events and shows.

    my advice to u, never envy a naija celeb. only very few of them are actually successful and are making money from their craft. majority na hustle (yahoo yahoo for the guys and prostitution for the ladies)

    the most annoying thing is they will be captioning the photos “na baba God oh” “God has been so faithful” GOD this God that.

    u making ur money thru fraud or prostitution and u are saying na baba God bless me, are u not stupid.

    I’m reminded of that his ‘Amin’ song where he says “help me say Amin o… asiri e oni tu”. It’s so sad that his ‘asiri’ have ‘tu’

    • What does it mean

      Please what does it mean?

      ‘Asiri e oni tu’ means ‘may your secrets not be uncovered’

    This is so sad and disappointing to his family and fans. I didn’t mention friends because I think most of his supposed friends will tag along and not care to ask him how he manages to live such a lifestyle, after all he is an “artist”. It is bad enough that you are a fraudster, why flaunt it, especially on social media. A lesson to others, but they will never learn until they are caught(the hard way).

    But people can be so dumb and gullible. So some actually believed that this small boy could afford the jet life?? With how many songs? How many hits? Someone who started music just when?

    It is bad enough a lot of Nigerian youths are into cyber crime or drug peddling. The sensible thing to do is to stay on the low.

    kai men in this life never envy any man that shows off on social media because you do not know the dirty or fraud that the engage in. Chinike God and to think some of his mates will be envying his lifestyle before his arrest. God please help this our generation because the way we like to showoff is very alarming especially the ones into fraud business. Like all of a sudden oga is flying private jet, not once or twice. I saw the picture of IG and the comments, now am rushing back to his page to see how far especially the guys that have over tapped his kind of blessings. But seriously if you are into fraud business, you can still leave a simple, boss and classy lifestyle and not a johnny just come kind of showing off lifestyle.

    Sometimes i ask if DAVIDO is a scammer. I know his dad is wealthy, but 70% of Davido’s friends are well known international scammers, credit card thieves etc. I can proof it.

    He’ll go to jail, probably get deported and then come back and start stunting for all of us, Dilly style. Abi, wasn’t it the same credit card fraud that one got rich on. He’ll even get police escorts while jogging, oppressing everyone trying to get to work in the morning, because he can, because this is Lagos, where money speaks. Nobody cares about the source, just have it.
    (As an aside: Reason why I still have not been able to bring myself to go to that jamo afrique place, as much as I like food and been at practically every restaurant in this lagos. I feel like I’m enabling bad behavior if I do. )

    Moving on; I really want to dig deep and come up with a bunch of rhetorics and cliches, but honestly I’m kinda tired. This kind of lifestyle is rewarded by Nigerians, our society applauds people like this, and often rewards them, (I can list a million names but don’t want BN to block my comment, the one I’ve mentioned is enough). So of what benefit is doing right and working hard to get the things you want when the people who’re taking the short cut are more celebrated?

    I’m tired. Nigeria tires me

      Hahaha, so that annoying “jogging-round-admiralty-with-escorts-in-a-big-jeep” guy is Dilly? Who’s Dilly or what’s a Dilly? and most especially who jogs when he should be working? (even if it’s from home…oh well I’m a *hater*) And to think he stole money too…smh

      All these people ehn, I’m just tires of them…like must you flaunt????

    How shameful….. Hope others will learn that social media is such a lie.
    @Jo!….totally feel u. Doing good and being lawful can be very tiring in a lawless society like Nigeria. But it’s really not only a Nigerian thing… It’s just the way of the world. There is a possibility you may never be rewarded for good in this life(though rarely), just make up ur mind to be good for goodness sake not expecting reward or applause, that way if nothing u’ll have peace inside all the chaos.

    Maybe it’s time efcc gets involved with our artists!

      June 3, 2017 at 1:56 pm

      Not to be disagreeing, but nope, they are a lot of corrupt politicians EFCC haven’t investigated and should. Head to bottom… Works better that way.

    Nobody dey rubbish only igbos, we condemn the act, simple!!!!! So deal with it. Yoruba and igbos don spoil Naija finish, and to think they were born during the days of vintage magazine and heart is appalling. Parent enough of pumping them out. Pls train them accordingly!!!!

    What saddens me is some of these artistes won’t learn from this. This “I must blow” and lavish lifestyle mentality that has pervaded the entertainment industry is worrisome. And social media has been more of a bane in this regards. If not, you are spending stolen credit cards yet you didn’t do it quietly, u had to post for the whole world to see. Yet some upcoming would be looking at him like #lifestylegoals. Asiri eleyi de ti tu, ki Olorun ko e yo lo ku..Amin

    I think he only got on the private jet once and pretended like he was doing a photo shoot or something n took pictures with different sets of clothes or how else would he explain standing on the aircraft to take pictures to the pilots?

    looks too basic so im wondering if it isnt a setup.He must have a handler who has done a number on him.It is usual with foreign artistes,looks like we are importing that now too.

    For your info, he left hypertek long ago to join HKN gang of thieves…so leave Tubaba out of this.

    My dear, some the women are also fraudsters and into drug dealing and the men, also sell their bodies. Anything to belong in Nigeria. Can you blame them, this society only seems to respect and serve the rich.
