Dappy donating controversial song royalties to charity

Rapper Dappy has pledged to donate the royalties from his new single to an anti-crime charity after name-checking a killer in the video.

The N-Dubz star came under fire earlier this week for including the message 'Free Leo Chindamo' in the opening credits of the promo for his song Tarzan 2, in reference to Leo Chindamo, who was 15 years old when he stabbed teacher Philip Lawrence outside a London school in 1995 after the principal stepped in to stop a fight.

Dappy went to the same school as Chindamo, who was released in 2010 after 12 years behind bars but was sent back to jail just four months later.

Lawrence's outraged relatives accused Dappy, real name Costadinos Contostavlos, of profiting off their pain - and he's now promised to hand over the royalty payments from the track to crime reduction charity Nacro.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, he writes, "I'm donating all my royalties earned from ‪Tarzan2‬ to the charity Nacro in respect to Philip Lawrence..."

The star is also keen to meet Lawrence's widow Frances to clear-up the controversy.

He adds, "It would be an honour to meet Francis Lawrence to show her that really I am a warm hearted person with 2kids that don't mean any harm."
