Popular highlife singer Flavour N’abania or simply Flavour has empathised with a white lady who fell a victim to a fraudster impersonating him, NjenjeMediaNews reports.
The lady, Kimberly, was said to have been in communication with a supposed ‘Flavour’ for over six months.
In a viral video, Ijele had a conversation via Zoom with Nev Schulman, the host of an American TV show“Catfish” where the victim and another lady were present.
Schulman informed Flavour of the fraud which had been ongoing for quite some time noting they needed clarification on the matter.
“Are you familiar with the show “Catfish?” Okay, we are filming an episode of the show; and we are here with Kimberly.
“And for the last six or so months, Kimberly has been interacting with someone from Nigeria who has essentially been pretending to be you.
“So we just wanted to completely confirm that it isn’t you that Kimberly has been talking to,” Schulman said.
Responding, Flavour N’abania affirmed he was familiar with the show while expressing deep regret for what Kimberly and others pass through in the hands of scammers who pose as him.
Flavour said: “No, no, no! I don’t know her. I’ve experienced stuff like this. I’ve been to shows where I get fans bumped into me. And they are like, “You know me?” and I’ll be like, “I don’t!”
“I feel bad because I don’t want anybody going through this kind of trauma because of me. All my accounts are verified. I don’t give out my personal information, I don’t talk to nothing, I don’t ask for money; that’s it for me.”
