For popular singer, Dammy Krane, it is a season of forgiveness as he explained in a chat with Saturday Beat that he had forgiven most people that offended him.
In the early stage of the careers of Dammy Krane and Wizkid, they were buddies, but that ended in 2016 after the duo reportedly exchanged blows in the popular Lagos club, Quilox. It was reported that the fight ensued because Dammy Krane alleged that Wizkid stole the song, Baba Nla, from him after paying him a visit at home.
Since then, both artistes have not been seen in public together until this year when they were pictured together. In a chat with Saturday Beat, Dammy Krane spoke about how he reconciled with his old pal.
He said, “Wizkid and I went to an event and from there we went out together. It was from there that we became friends again. I have forgiven him because it is just one song and we would still do songs together. We would still do one or two things together but you need to understand that we are all getting to different stages of our lives.”
When the artiste claimed that Wizkid stole his song, some social media users opined that the song could not have been as much of a success if Dammy Krane had sung it.
For the first time, he has reacted to the insinuations saying, “I believe that my songs would last for a long time; they are all evergreen songs and ten years from now, I know that you would always hear Dammy Krane’s songs like Amin and Amen.”
The artiste, who also had a misunderstanding with fellow music artiste, Orezi, because the latter replicated his hairstyle, explained what happened between them. He told Saturday Beat that Orezi had apologised to him.
“If you know Dammy Krane very well, you would know that I joke with a lot of things but people tend to take them seriously. I do not think we had any problems; only miscommunication. Orezi has already apologised to me because he understood that it was miscommunication. Everything that happened during that period was miscommunication,” he said.
The artiste also used the opportunity to talk about his new project, ‘Amen.’
“God has told me that whatever I ask from Him as far as I pray to Him and worship Him, I would get it and that is why I sang the song, Amen. For example, I said in the song that it would be number one song on the charts and right now it is the number one song on the Nigerian music iTunes chart.
“When it comes to releasing an album, it is based on the demands of my fans. I always get messages on my Instagram about when I would release an album but when the demands becomes too many, I would forward them to my management and we would set a date for the album,” he said.
Although he has since left Tuface’s record label, he told Saturday Beat that he maintained a cordial relationship with his former boss.
Krane said, “I have a great relationship with Tuface and I have a learnt a lot from him. He is more like a mentor to me in the industry; I have learnt a lot about humility and hard work from him and he is also a God-fearing person. He taught me how to be a businessman as well.”
