Fast-rising gospel music minister Adeyinka Alaseyori has revealed how she was scammed of 100,000 Naira by someone who claimed to be a music promoter.

While sharing her experience to teach others a lesson, Adeyinka Alaseyori said the incident happened about six years ago.

She Said, “About 6 years ago or so, someone contacted me here on Facebook, acknowledge my gift and presented himself to me as a marketer and promoter. We got talking and he explained how he wants to market my jobs and all.

“I checked his profile and he has a picture with everyone I look up to as mothers and fathers in ministry at one event or the other.
He was everywhere but he’s not who he portrays himself to be.

“Knowing me and my husband, we hardly jump on opportunities without due diligence but this time we fell for his words and before we knew it, we had paid him over 100k to start recording my album. Oga collected money and voooom oga disappeared.

She recalled how she went on a searching spree when the self acclaimed promoter was not forthcoming but she discovered the man had scammed other people.

“I went looking for him at the office he presented to me as his and they were looking for him too because he had scammed other people.
To cut the long story short, I was scammed and heaven didn’t fall but that singular event delayed me from recording another album for almost 4 years.

She was however grateful she did not get to work with a man with dubious character as this could have impacted her ministry negatively.

“However, I am grateful to God I didn’t get to work with such human. Only God knows what would have become of one’s career today.

On the moral of her story, she urged the people to be careful so as not to fall victim to scammers.

If someone you respect but don’t have a relationship with refuse to take pictures with you, don’t assume they’re proud, their image is on the line.

Moral of my story:

  • Don’t assume people have a relationship because they have a photo together. Ask questions.
  • Not everything that looks like an opportunity is one, some just want to use you.
  • Every delay is not necessarily a loss of time, sometimes it’s for a greater glory.
