Seyi Vibez recounts how he was scammed while trying to join Wizkid’s label

Popular Nigerian singer, Seyi Vibez has revealed that he was swindled during the early days of his career when he tried to join Wizkid’s record label, Starboy Entertainment.

According to the singer, he contacted a number he saw on Google and when he paid the N10,000 required to join the record label but he was blocked afterwards.

In a recent interview in Lagos, the singer 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 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 advised up-and-coming artists not to sign up for any record label online.
