It’s been reported that Nigerian artist, D’Banj, has lost his Instagram account to hackers.
This was disclosed in a short message, shared by his management to alert his fans of any fraudulent activities and impersonation. Per the information gathered, the hackers of the account are from Turkish as the flag on it depicts.
However, they have succeeded in changing the dp to that of a tiger and have started sharing movies, trailers, and others. According to the management team of D’Banj, they are working means out to take back the account for his musical career.
These hackers take over accounts of celebrities sometimes, because of the massive followers they have. Most times too, it’s a planned game just to bring down the artist out of jealousy. Recall that somebody also took over Laycon’s Twitter account to fraud his followers. This caused the impersonator to change the new account after it was divided but could still be checked because of the images used.
The announcement D’banjo made about the hacking reads:
MY INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT @IAMBANGALEE JUST GOT HACKED PLEASE IGNORE ALL MESSAGES FROM THE ACCOUNT. MY TEAM AND I ARE WORKING TO GET IT BACK ON PLEASE BEAR WITH US. THANKS SIGNED MANAGEMENT
