Following an investigation by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), Dida was sentenced after a three-day trial at Southampton Crown Court, where jurors took just an hour to find him guilty of failing to pay at least the National Minimum Wage to 11 workers between July 2013 and May 2014, and failing to keep proper records.
The 29-year-old must now pay a £14,000 fine within 28 days, or face a possible 12 month jail term.
Dida, of Southdene Road, Chandler’s Ford, was also ordered to pay a total of £4,400 in compensation to workers who have been traced by HMRC, plus £2,000 in court costs.
Upon sentencing the judge Master RH Davison, said: “You were convicted on strong evidence from the prosecution of not paying National Minimum Wage and not keeping records of wages, and you deliberately exploited vulnerable employees.” The Daily Echo was unable to contact Dida, whose Bitterne Road West company charges up to £100 for a premium valet.

“Judging by the date and from the presence of so many senior people, it appears that the gathering is linked to Operation Overlord,” said Richard.
The latter was won as a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps, but its occasion was also to lead to Captain Liddell's death from the injuries he suffered.
In 1947 (following its use as a military hospital in the Second World War) the Sherfield Manor site was purchased and operated by North Foreland Lodge, a girls' boarding school previously based in North Foreland, Kent.
