A fraudster who has been taking advantage of unsuspecting victims claiming to be a rep for Wizkid and EME has finally been arrested by the Nigerian Police Force.
Wizkid speaking yesterday (July 3, 2013) in Lagos, while reacting to on-going investigations on recent discoveries and arrests said, ‘It’s unfair that fraudsters will take advantage of unsuspecting victims’.
‘The culprit has been apprehended and all is being done to make sure such incidents don’t reoccur.’ Wizkid added.
A statement released last night, and made available to NET, says An EME impostor is currently in police custody. He was handed over to the police by his latest victim- Muyiwa. Muyiwa also known as ‘Origin’ started transactions with the impostor, only to discover he was being duped and quickly handed him over to the police.
EME label head, Banky W who says he’s also been a victim impersonation, says the label is putting all structures in place, while working with relevant authorities to make sure the trend is put to a stop.
‘This is not a unique problem to EME or its acts, but a serious challenge to most major labels/artists as well as the fans and event organizers’, he added.
The label says the Police will still apprehend more fraudsters
