Seyi Vibez Reveals He Was Scammed While Trying to Join Wizkid’s Record Label

Popular Nigerian singer Seyi Vibez has revealed that he was defrauded while attempting to join Wizkid’s record label, Starboy Entertainment, during the early stages of his career.

In a recent interview with Wazobia FM, Lagos, Seyi Vibez recounted the incident, saying he Googled how to join Starboy Entertainment and found a phone number. After calling the number, he was asked to pay N10,000 for a registration form. Trusting the process, he sold his phone to make the payment, only to be blocked by the scammer afterward.

He 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 the 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.”

Seyi Vibez advised up-and-coming artists not to sign up for any record label online to avoid similar scams.
