Musician Fille Mutoni has asked Ugandan music promoters worldwide not to book her using social media platforms following a case in which someone used her name to con Ugandan music promoters in the diaspora
She says the many Facebook accounts with her photos and contacts are not hers but were created by conmen and women who want to use her name for their own selfish interests.
She says someone on Facebook has been asking promoters outside Uganda to pay him money if they want Fille to perform for them because he is her manager in Uganda.
This is after a Dubai-based promoter was on the verge of being conned through one of the fake Facebook accounts that she has disowned.
“Hullo lovers!! So many impersonators on social media. Below is one who has gone an extra mile of booking shows and receiving payments from Dubai in my name..I have no Facebook accounts I only have this page .Help share so as to end this mess,” She posted on her official Facebook page.
Several musicians, big personalities and companies have also fallen victim of this problem as some unknown people have been creating pages with an aim of conning the public.
