Musicians have been warned not to use their celebrity status as an avenue to engage in cyber crime.
The advice is coming on the heel of singers Naira Marley, Zlatan Ibile’s and others arrest by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for fraud.
Cautioning singers who indulge or plan to indulge in cyber crime and fraud, the Youth Emancipation Movement of Africa in a statement made available to Newspoint Media warned those taking cover under music production that law will catch up with them because law can never recognize music production as an immunity clause over cyber crime.
I really don’t understand how singers hide under music to engage in fraud.
Nowadays, musicians consider themselves as demigods to engage in crime. Your celebrity status does not offer you an immunity clause for fraud. You are very much answerable to the laws of the land. If found wanting, It will only take time but certainly, very certainly justice will be served to you when you least expect it. A word is enough for the wise.
