Multichoice has dissociated itself from the activities of a scammer who is trying to defraud upcoming musicians who wish that their works are aired on Big Brother Naija Show Season Four.
A News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) investigation reveals that the scammer, identified as Fola, is requesting the artistes to pay different sums for their acts to feature in the show.
Fola sends Whatsapp announcements to the musicians to enable them to participate in the show at a fee. (attachment)
The deal has three packages, namely, per song rotation in the house, performance at the live shows and a DJ package.
The first package costs N150, 000, the second, N450, 000 and the third, N250, 000.
Under the deal, the artistes are to be invited to play on one of the Saturday parties that are part of the BBNaija show.
NAN found that the money is to be paid into a proxy account not connected to DStv, a direct broadcast satellite service owned by Multichoice, the organisers of the show.
When approached, a representative of the promoter simply asked NAN for the package the artiste wanted and if he would love to perform or have his songs played in the house.
The representative thereafter requested the artiste to make payment and send the song via mail.
