Rwandan musician Danny Ntakirutimana, commonly known by stage name Danny Nanone, is in Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB)’s custody for allegedly assaulting a woman.
The rapper was arrested on Monday, September 19, and is detained at Kicukiro RIB Station as confirmed by the investigation agency’s spokesperson Dr. Thierry Murangira.
“He is detained at Kicukiro RIB Station over an intentional assault of a woman aged 30 years old. The investigation is ongoing so that his case file can be sent to the prosecution,” Murangira told The New Times on Tuesday.
The New Times understands that it’s not the first time Danny Nanone was arrested over an attempt to assault the same woman with whom they reportedly have a child.
The pair’s relationship has been having ups and downs since 2016, when they were involved in tensions that also resulted in the arrest of the rapper.
If convicted, the ‘’Jye ndarapa, Narya Dance,..’’ hit maker could face a three to five-year prison sentence and a fine of not less than Rwf500,000 and not more than Rwf1,000 000.
