EARLY LIFE AND BACKGROUND
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 , And D’Banj.
Starting music at age 6, joined the children’s choir
and ministered in various churches.
He started singing when he was six, joined the toddlers’ choir in
church when he was only eight. He was doing back up songs
and dancing for other artistes at the age of 11.
His parent were not supportive of his choice of choosing music over academics; besides, he had not seen his mum
for 10 years until 2013.
She lives in the United States of America
where she is an event manager and manager to some Fuji
artistes. He is from a polygamous family, the only child of
his mum but he was brought up by his grandmother.
When he was in Redeemers University, he
was a local champion there. He used to do a lot of free styling
and collabos. He had a song ‘Uni Girls’ that was popular in a
lot of universities. It was a Fuji pop song. The buzz created
by the music got him a job as the face of Dynamix
His university Redeemers uni don’t support entertainment and that was why he left school. He
had to leave so that he won’t be rusticated. Everybody in
school loved him and he was in his first year studying
microbiology. He even ran away from home, though he came
back. He was then living and working in different studios which is
what you would classify as a studio rat. Leaving school was
a risk he had to take and he hope to go back someday to study
business management this time around.

listened to some of the collabos he did with other artistes and
also watched one of his performances. He then asked if he
was signed on to any label. And Of course he was not and Tuface
signed me unto Hypertek Records.
His first song, ‘My dear. brought him to limelight in 2012 That song was
inspired by the fact that he had been doing a lot of collabos
and people were asking for a single and he actually released released a bangs for then after getting on hypertek records.
