Seyi Vibez Shares Experience of Being Scammed While Trying to Join Wizkid’s Record Label

Singer Seyi Vibez has shared his experience of being scammed while trying to join Wizkid’s record label, Starboy Entertainment, in the early days of his career as a teenager.

He recalled searching on Google for ways to join Starboy Entertainment and stumbling upon a phone number that ended up defrauding him.

Seyi explained that he called the number and was instructed to pay N10,000 for a registration form, which he did, only to be later blocked.

The ‘Cana’ hitmaker disclosed this during a recent interview with Wazobia FM, Lagos.

Vibez said: “I remember when I was 13 years old, I wanted to sign to Starboy, I went to Google and typed, ‘How to register to Starboy record label.’ I saw one number and I called the number, the guy who picked it up said I should pay for form N10,000.

“That was how I sold my phone and paid the guy N10,000 but after the payment he blocked me. He told me that he was Wizkid’s recruitment officer. I said I would come for the screening, I would perform and Wizkid would judge my performance. So I fell for it.”

He, therefore, advised up-and-coming artists not to sign up for any record label online.
