The bitter complains about this development from Wizkid’s management company however got the attention of the media.The unsuspecting promoter has also gone ahead to pay $5,000 (N1m) as part of the agreed sum to the fake agents who claimed to represent the pop star for a scheduled Australian tour.
The promoter became worried as and when he couldn’t reach the impersonators again, and when it also became obvious the artiste will not be available for the planned tour.
He however made more enquiries and eventually got through to the Sunday Are -led List Entertainment, the real management company for Wizkid before it dawned on him that he has been duped.
The bitter complaints about this development from Wizkid’s management company however got the attention of the media again, warning the general public for the umpteenth time to stop dealing with fraudsters parading themselves to be representing Wizkid.
The company has before now made public phone numbers and emails (08033480122, 08059932155, firstname.lastname@example.org) of the company for all enquiries about Wizkid.
You will recall that some fraudsters impersonating the pop star were once arrested and remanded at the Lagos State Police Headquarters in Ikeja.
