Oyindamola Johnson was born in Lagos, Nigeria and originates from the Yoruba ethnic group in South-West Nigeria. Dammy Krane was born to an Oluwakemi Osodi (who was a manager in the fuji music industry at the time).[] Dammy Krane cites this as an early influence in his career. Starting music at age 6, joined the children's choir and ministered in various churches. He went to Providence Heights secondary school where he was known for being an amazing dancer and performer. After graduating, Dammy Krane concentrated on his music and worked hard at his craft, eventually establishing himself as an act to watch

Inspired by artistes like Fela Kuti, Femi Kuti, Lagbaja, King Sunny Ade, 2face Idibia, D'Banj and Sauce kid, he started recording songs on his own and performing at various university shows with his ability to merge all genres of music.

He credits his signing to Hypertek Records to a chance meeting with 2face Idibia at a birthday party. He says 2face Idibia had seen him perform and made the decision to sign him.[2]

On 2 June 2017, he was arrested in Miami, Florida for booking a Tapjets flight with a stolen credit card . He however came out in a series of tweets to deny his arrest and promised to reveal all that happened in a new material after his release. [6]

Personal life

On Friday 2 June 2017, Dammy Krane was arrested in the US reportedly for grand theft, credit card fraud and identity fraud.[7] In the days that followed more allegations were reported that he had used a stolen credit card to book a private jet from the company Tap Jets while on holiday in Miami. The company had detected the alleged fraud due to discrepancies in the credit card information he had provided.[8][9] He was released from jail in Miami after meeting his bail conditions, set at $7,500. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and demanded a trial by jury. The singer was assigned an attorney and was billed to appear in court on June 23, 2017.
