A court in the United Kingdom has sentenced a Nigerian rapper to over 10 years imprisonment for repeatedly raping a woman.
It was learnt that the rapper, Olawale Hassan popularly known as Goldie 1 made advances to the woman after they met in an Essex nightclub in Southend back February 2017.
Mailonline reported that the 34-year-old said he would get her home safely but instead drove her to a car park where he overpowered and raped her.
According to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Hassan was found guilty at Basildon Crown Court of three counts of rape and one of sexual assault.
The CPS further stated that the defendant, of Grays in Essex, was jailed on Tuesday October 6, for 10 years and two months.
Helen Walsh, senior Crown prosecutor in the rape and serious sexual offences unit for CPS East of England, said: ‘We were able to present the case that Olawale was a controlling sexual predator who showed a complete disregard for the victim’s lack of consent.
‘He exploited his opportunity to sexually assault the woman before proceeding to rape her multiple times while she drifted in and out of consciousness in his car.
‘Consent can be withdrawn at any time and at the discretion of the individuals involved.
‘Just because you consent to dancing does not mean you consent to sex.
‘The law is clear, sex without consent is rape and this case shows that where there is sufficient evidence we will not shy away from prosecuting the perpetrators of such heinous crimes.’
Investigating officer Detective Constable Victoria De’ath, of Essex Police, said: ‘I would like to thank the victim for her courage in reporting this incident.
‘When I first met her, she blamed herself for getting in Hassan’s car but has now recognised just how dangerous this man is and that none of this is her fault.’
