Hackers targets Davido after Naira Marley, singer cries out
Nigerian Singer, David Adeleke popularly known as Davido has revealed attempts by social media hackers to compromise his twitter account via the same micro blogging platform today.
Attempts to take over Davido’s twitter account happened barely two weeks after hackers took over famous street-pop musician, Azeez Fashola aka Naira Marley‘s Twitter account.
Davido who has over 6.2 million followers on his twitter account clearly knows the implication of losing the social profile that has been very useful for him over time. The singer who uses the medium for promoting his songs and brands was furious after detecting the intrusive attempts and he quickly raised alarm about the unauthorized attempts to take over his account via a tweet in the early hours of Sunday, 22nd of February. See tweet below.
Most compromised social media accounts are usually hacked through ‘Social engineering’, a psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. A lot of Nigerian celebrities have been victims of social media hackers recently.
TV Reality Stars Nina and Alex Unsual were victims on Instagram last year. Naira Marley who was also victim on twitter recently narrates his ordeal after re-gaining access to his twitter account.
