Barely two weeks after some students of University of Lagos were said to have accused hip hop singer, Wizkid, of breaching a contract to perform in the institution, his album label, EME, has given indications that some impostors had struck the deal with the students.
This is contained in a statement released through Lagos-based media organisation, BHM, noting that Wizkid has “spoken out against his continuous impersonation by fraudsters.”
The culprits are said to have been nabbed by law enforcement agents.
But the award-winning artiste, bugged by increasing complaints and reported incidents, says he is worried that some fraudsters would go to any length to defraud fans.
The statement said the artiste spoke in Lagos on July 2, while reacting to on-going investigations on what it calls recent discoveries and arrests.
Wizkid, who had said on Twitter that he did not engage in cheap musical engagements, obviously referring to the N500,000 fee the students were said to have paid, was quoted as saying, “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.”
EME Chairman Banky W, also said to have been a victim of 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.
