This is coming few months after Femi Adebayo dissociated himself from a reality show, internet fraudsters were using to defraud people in his name.

Sources revealed these individuals lured innocent Nigerians, by selling the idea of a Reality TV show and requesting they make payment for entry forms. The popular actor who washed his hands off such activity in a press release through his publicist, wrote;
“Please be advised that Femi Adebayo currently has NO RELATIONSHIP with any Reality TV show and isn’t requesting via phone calls, SMS, emails or through social media that anyone makes any form of payment to pick up a form.
If Femi Adebayo were engaged in any activity that requires public attention, he would pass the information across through his official social media pages or a press release.

We are making frantic efforts through appropriate means to ensure those involved in this act are apprehended and face the music.
Femi Adebayo remains true to his craft and committed to delivering quality entertainment for your consumption”

Few days ago, we also reported that Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), arrested one Osigbovo from Benin, Edo State who had reportedly been impersonating Nollywood actor, Mike Ezuruonye.

The arrest of the suspect came after Mike Ezuruonye, petitioned the police over impersonators who have been running down his brand by duping unsuspecting fans.
