Nigerian rapper sentenced for rape
Nigerian rapper, Olawale Hassan also known as Goldie 1 has been sentenced to jail in the United Kingdom
for raping a woman.
According to BBC.com, the 33-year-old, who lives at Falcon Avenue, Grays, Essex, attacked the victim in
Southend in 2017 after claiming he was a music producer, officers said.
The rapper said he would get her home safely but instead drove her to a car park where he overpowered her
and ignored her requests for him to stop.
However, during his trial, he denied the three counts of rape and one charge of assault by penetration.
Essex Police has described him as “manipulative and calculated”.
Hassan was found guilty at Basildon Crown Court of three counts of rape and one of sexual assault,
the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said.
He was sentenced to jail on Tuesday, October 6, 2020, for 10 years and two months.
