When you are a celebrity a lot of people try to take advantage of your already flourishing brand to make some quick cash irrespective of the damage it does.
This is the case for a lot of Nigerian celebrities and music stars Flavour and Wizkid recently spoke out about it.
In a press release sent out today, Flavour warns his fans about fake social media pages saying
“It has been brought to mine and my team’s attention that there are numerous FAKE social media and business network accounts operating in my name, duping and scamming individuals and fans across the world. Please take important note that, I AM NOT THE ONE operating these accounts. These impersonators are using my name to reach out to people via social media to engage in criminal activity.”
He also went on to share his official social media handles: Instagram: @2niteflavour (Verified Account) | Snapchat: Flavourijele | Twitter: @2niteflavour (Verified Account) | Facebook: Flavour Nabania | YouTube: Official Flavour
Similarly, yesterday Wizkid went on Twitter to talk about the fact that this year he has lost out on a lot of money and had to cancel a lot of shows because of impersonators who made deals that weren’t valid.
