E.M.E Record released a statement revealing that Wizkid’s impostor is now in police custody.
Excerpts from the statement reads…
“An EME impostor is currently in police custody. He was handed over to the police by his latest victim- Muyiwa.
“Impersonating artists and record labels is apparently the new 419. This is not a unique problem to EME or it’s acts, but a serious challenge to most major labels/artists as well as the fans and event organizers. We’ve done the best we can to streamline our processes so that anyone, anywhere can contact us at Bookings@empirematesentertainment.com and know that they have right information.”
“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.”
On Wednesday afternoon, June 19, Wizkid visited the Zone 2 command Onikan of the Nigerian Police force for another case involving an imposter who collected N500,000 from some University of Lagos students.
Wizkid was invited alongside his manager Godwin Tom for questioning by the police after he was accused of collecting money and then failing to appear at UNILAG’s Concert of Life gig which took place at the institution’s Sports Centre on May 21st. He was at the station for a few hours and was only allowed to leave after he’d written a statement and bailed by his lawyer.
EME says the police will continue to apprehend other impostors.
