Trouble reportedly loomed after Merrybet Gold Limited wrote a petition to the police accusing the musician of threats and cyberbullying.
In a petition titled, ‘Petition against Oyindamola Johnson Emmanuel aka Dammy Krane for false and libellous statement against Merrybet Gold Limited and signed by its lawyer, Nwabueze Anachebe, the betting firm said the musician perpetrated cyberbullying and criminal defamation.
The musician was said to have attended a game show sponsored by the betting company but lost.
However, Dammy Krane was said to have demanded some money for appearing on the show but the firm disagreed, insisting that the sum is only given to winners. The embittered musician subsequently went on the radio where he accused the betting firm of owing him money and breaching a contractual agreement.
