July 6th, 2013 – Wizkid Impostor, Fraudster Arrested In Lagos – Banky W Warns Fans “Be Careful”
The police recently arrested an impostor that goes around defrauding the people while claiming to be the talented singer, Ayo Balogun popularly known as Wizkid.
The pop star, has spoken out against his continuous impersonation by fraudsters. The Pakurumo crooner, who was worried by increasing complaints and reported incidents, said that some bandits would go to any length to perpetrate evil acts and defraud innocent fans and clients.
Wizkid, who spoke some days ago 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 happen again,” Wizkid added.
The impostor is currently in police custody. He was handed over to the police by his latest victim, one Muyiwa.
Muyiwa claimed to have transacted with the impostor only to discover later that he was being duped and got the impostor arrested.
Meanwhile, EME Chairman, Banky W, who has been a victim of impersonation says the label is putting all structures in place while working with relevant authorities to make sure the trend does not continue.
“It saddens us to know that crooks still try to take advantage of our fans and supporters, but we are doing all we can to put the right info out and we hope that everyone takes note so as not to fall into their traps,” he added.
