Social media hackers have pulled their trigger on pop sensation Iyanya and his manager Ubi Franklin; taking complete control of their Facebook and Twitter pages.
In a statement released by their label Made Men Music label on behalf of Iyanya and Franklin, the hackers took the pages in the early hours of Monday.
The statement reads…
“In the past few hours Nigerian entertainer, Iyanya Mbuk along with his manager Ubi Franklin have been the victims of hacking.
Regrettably, the individual(s) involved have posted false endorsements on Iyanya’s Facebook page and Twitter with the aim of deceiving fans and followers for personal gain, and have maliciously changed Ubi Franklin’s Twitter handle.
We’re currently working with Twitter and Facebook to regain access to the accounts and in the meantime fans can continue to interact with Iyanya via his official Instagram account (@Iyanya).
Iyanya apologises for any inconvenience caused and urges fans to ignore any requests that the hackers might make.”
D’banj, Flavour, Wizkid and Don Jazzy have also been targets of social media hackers.
