A 19-year old girl impersonated Wizkid and defrauded some people.
Following the allegation made by a UK-based show promoter over Wizkid’s non-appearance, the real story was dug out.
The Lagos State Police Command has arrested the unidentified 19-year old, reported to have defrauded two people of over 10 Million Naira, after impersonating Star Boy Entertainment singer, Wizkid.
According to CityNews.ng, after Humble Entertainment publicised their disappointment of Wizkids non-appearance, the starboy singer reported the matter to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, because he was not aware of any negotiations with the entertainment company.
The Police swung into action and found the culprit. According to reports, the lady opened a social media account with Wizkid’s name and picture, which she used in getting her victims.
“A lady was arrested for defrauding people on . . . She was posing as Wizkid. She was arrested yesterday. The lady duped two people.
“The two victims are outside Nigeria. Members of the public should be very careful on sending money to people they met online.
“The lady collected money from people in the United States and they thought they were paying money to Wizkid to come and perform.
“They did not know they were dealing with fraudsters. Nigerians should warn friends and relatives overseas to be careful in sending money to anyone, especially someone they did not know or have not seen.”
The said Lady has entered the Police’s black list of Nigerian fraudsters and will be facing serious scrutiny and judgement. Although she has not yet given details of how she was able to pull that off, the 19-year old has made some cool cash which she would have to refund.
