Spain charges Shakira with tax fraud

Published

on


Spanish prosecutors have filed charges against Colombian singer Shakira, accusing her of failing to pay 14.5 million euros in tax ($16.3 million) in the country where her Spanish footballer partner plays.
The charges were filed Friday in the Catalonia region, where the singer is a regular presence at matches of her partner Gerard Pique’s team, Barcelona. She was accused of failing to pay tax on income earned from 2012-2014, when the prosecutors say she lived there.

Representatives of Shakira said in a statement that the singer did not live in Spain until 2015, and has met all of her tax obligations to Spanish authorities.

The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer and Pique have been a couple since the start of the decade and have two children.

It is the latest case of a high-profile foreigner with links to top level Spanish soccer being accused of avoiding tax while living there. Earlier investigations looked into Pique’s Argentinian Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi and Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo, who left Real Madrid for Juventus this year

Dammy Krane Speaks on Releasing Worship Songs

Dammy Krane


Nigerian afro-pop singer, Oyindamola Johnson Emmanuel, popularly known as Dammy Krane, has revealed why he sang worship songs after he came out from prison.

On his return from prison in Canada after being tried by the court for alleged credit card fraud, the pop star released a couple of gospel-like songs.

The songs sparked off rumours that his prison experience had made him switch to gospel music genre.

However, the singer told Vanguard that he only sang the gospel songs because he wanted something from God.

He said, “No, I’m not into gospel music. ‘Amen’ is just a song. When I want something, I pray to my God, and worship him and he gives it to me.

“For example, in that Amen song, I kept saying ‘Number one on the music chart, it’s God’. Right now the song is number one on the music chart.

“After what happened last year, I had to praise and worship Him for all he had done.

“They both came from the same emotional inspiration. God knows best.”
