At about 9 am, October 8th, 2010, stories emerged from an on-line magazine that Dampte with other artistes were spotted smoking marijuana at the just concluded Independence Carnival tagged Nigeria @ 50 in Ilorin, Kwara State. This event on its own is untrue. The report fabricated. In as much as we as a team do not condemn those who smoke or choose to smoke marijuana as it is a matter of choice, we do condemn stories which are unfounded. And we wish to state as follows
1. Yes, Dampte was at the Nigeria @ 50 Carnival in Ilorin, Kwara State
2. Yes, Dampte was around a lot of artistes including but not limited to those named in the report
3. Yes, Dampte was at the back stage as against under the stage as reported
We have, and again request an apology from the On-line magazine for trying to smear the brand name Dampte. Although we understand it is mere gossip but we would not stand around and watch DAMPTE and what he represents be dragged through the mud.
We use this medium to apologise to all the fans and supporters who are disturbed as much as we are with this unfounded story.

In the meanwhile, continue to support Dampte and watch out for his new single “Go Get-Her” as it begins to climb up the charts.
