So yesterday there we reports that WizKid & his manager Godwin Tom were were invited by men of the Nigeria Police Force – Zone 2 Command, Onikan, for an issue with students of the University of Lagos who alleged that they had paid N500,000 for him to perform at a show at the UNILAG Sports Center on May 21st.
According to the group, he never showed for the performance.
We reached out to WizKid’s actual manager, Godwin Tom on the subject, and he confirmed that they were indeed brought in for questioning, but states that the person the UNILAG group paid money to is not him, and they have been scammed. He went further to state that the Emails, phone number, account details were all fake and not those from him or Wizkid.
There has been a wave of scam activities recently in the entertainment industry, and Iyanya has also come out to state that there is a fake manager representing him with fake account details and social media accounts.
Looking back at the case, you know this is a fake because N500,000 seems like a petty amount compared to what we know Wizkid collects for a show.
