Seyi Vibez recounts how he was defrauded while attempting to join Wizkid’s record label

Seyi Vibez, a popular Nigerian artist, has revealed how he was duped when attempting to join Wizkid’s record label, Starboy Entertainment, in the early stages of his career.

He recalls searching Google for information on how to join Starboy Entertainment and finding a number. When he called the number, he said he was requested to pay N10,000 for the registration form, which he paid but was blocked afterward. The ‘Cana’ hitmaker said this during a recent interview with Wazobia FM in 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 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.
