Olawale Hassan, a UK-based Nigerian rapper also known as Goldie 1, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping a woman.
According to BBC, the 33-year-old singer, who lives at Falcon Avenue, Grays, Essex, attacked his subject in Southend back in 2017 after identifying himself as a music producer.
He had been charged with three counts of rape and one of assault by penetration. He had also denied the charges but was unanimously found guilty by a jury and was sentenced on Tuesday.
Essex police also described Hassan as “manipulative and calculated”.
The rapper was said to have targeted the woman while she was out with a friend in February 2017.
It was gathered that the crime had occurred after the victim turned down Hassan’s requests for her number and to accompany him to his hotel room.
Hassan had thereafter promised to get her home safely after her friend left.
However, the accused had, instead, allegedly parked his car on the seafront and locked its doors when she tried to flee before the attack, after which she was said to have called the police.
