How I was scammed during attempt to sign with Wizkid’s rec

Superstar Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Balogun Afolabi Oluwaloseyi popularly known as Seyi Vibez has recounted a troubling experience of being scammed by someone posing as Wizkid‘s manager while seeking to secure a record deal at 13.

Seyi also known as Loseyi Professor during a recent interview with Wazobia 95.1  Lagos,  revealed that he had always dreamed of being signed to Wizkid’s record label, Starboy Entertainment, ever since he was 13 years old.

He recounted his experience, explaining how he longed to be part of the Starboy crew and turned to Google to search “how to register for Starboy Entertainment.”

During his search, he found a phone number and called it. The person who answered claimed to be Wizkid’s manager and requested N10,000 for a form.

Trusting their assurances that he would be invited for a screening process and allowed to perform for Wizkid, he sold his phone to pay for the form. However, after making the payment, he was blocked.

He shared this story to caution someone who asked about joining his record label, Vibe Inc., advising them not to register online.
