Dancehall artiste Aidonia plagued by scammers


Dancehall deejay Aidonia is seeking to remedy the malicious work of scam artists plaguing his career.


Since September 2013, a fake Facebook account has caused the artiste to be contacted by business persons who have been swindled.

"This start from about last year September. From dem time deh people start contact wi bout this whole Facebook thing. At that time, wi neva tek it too serious because entertainers always have fans who make pages. We realise now that it a happen too often and people start contact my management team, saying them send money and can't get the songs or dubs," explained Aidonia.

"Coming down to the end of the year, it start get more common, so we went out and did some checks on the situation and, after that we did a few videos which we put online to let the fans know what was happening. But it come in like the video dem still nuh enough because people still a contact wi. People are still collecting money for shows.

"It even reach as far as a man sending me a half of a song, suh dem start do even fake 45 now. A man send mi a four-bar, weh somebody a try do a song, but it nuh sound nothing like me. It's like is a business dem a operate now'" he said.

Aidonia said this malpractice only negatively affects entertainers.

He, therefore, wants to make it clear, "We don't operate business through social media. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter was created for the fans, and for me to interact with the fans. And that's what we're trying to make people know. We don't do business through social media. So don't contact any Facebook that saying Aidonia in the studio now doing dubs or jingles, send your money.

"The only person for bookings, just like I said in the videos, is my brother, Lav Lawrence 1-876-412-1997 or 1-876-390-8258 or dem can contact Juke Boxx or Headline Entertainment."
