Wizkid

Nelly who is an undergraduate studying Industrial Chemistry, at the Delta State University, Abraka, was captured while trying to meet with an Australian expected to make part payment for the singer's performance.

The young lady became subject of the news after defrauding two people of over N10 million, which led to an embarrassment to Wizkid.

The singer was accused by Humble Entertainment, a show promotion agency of boycotting a concert that he has been booked for.

This led to an investigation by the police after a report was made at the office of the Lagos State Commissioner for Police, Fatai Owoseni.

According to Wizkid's manager, Sunday Are, Nelly confessed to committing fraud after she was apprehended.

He said, "She has collected money from different people. If you don’t have evidence against her, she would deny it. But if you show her evidence, she would tell you the truth. There was the case of the $53,000, which we had to refund to the owner.

"She confirmed that she was the one who collected it. There was another payment of $12,500 from Germany. The Germany people sent details of how they paid the money to her. She couldn’t deny it.”

Nelly had accomplices based on the images displayed of her after she was apprehended.
