Timaya may never again help any fan who tags him to a request on social media.
Today, the singer responded to a call for help by a ‘fan’ who told a moving tale about how she was on the verge of dropping out of school because of unpaid fees.
Recall that a student recently made headlines after he cried out to Mavin boss, Don Jazzy to help him pay his N190k school fees, and he would be expelled if he doesn’t pay asap. Long stoy short, Don Jazzy helped him out. (READ HERE)
Today, this fan cried for Timaya’s help saying her okirika business wasn’t enough to sustain her, and was on the verge of dropping out of school.
Timaya immediately replied to the fans request, “Send me a DM,” he replied, and the excited fan erupted in thanks, prompting other Nigerians on the page to shower the singer with praises.
But, not long after, an Instagram user called out the help-seeker for fraud.
“Please, it is a scam. Don’t give anybody money o. [She] is a scammer. She took my pictures from my profile,” said the Instagrammer whose photos were being used for fraud, and then she asked other commenters to report the account for violating community rules.
Upset, Timaya chirped in a comment that probably has ended any fan’s hopes of getting help from him. “[You see why most people don’t help,” he said.
