Smiles can now creep back to the face of Waka Queen, Salawa Abeni, as the Lagos State Police Command on Sunday announced that it had arrested a certain man who had been blackmailing her.
A statement from the police read:
“Our Decoy team have arrested a man who tried blackmailing the popular fuji artiste, Salawa Abeni with her nude photos. He claims he got them from a memory card which he found on the floor while in school. He has been transferred to State CID, Panti for further investigation.”
Veteran singer, Salawa Abeni had taken to her Instagram account to expose a blackmailer who had threatened to reveal nude photos of her.
The waka singer who sang predominantly in the Yoruba language shared screenshots of her conversations with the blackmailer who identified himself as Jason.
Rather than cave into her blackmailer’s demands for money to prevent him from releasing the nudes, the “Shooting Stars” singer updated her followers about the development.
In her Instagram post, she expressed her disappointment at how the unknown individual was trying to “tarnish my image and destroy my career of over 45 years.”
She wrote in part:
“These could’ve been pictures of me in the hospital or even with my partner, but is this what has become of us?? I plead with everybody out there to be very careful as our current situation has made people very desperate. I am almost 60 years old, I have worked very hard and made a name for myself for somebody to believe that they can threaten and trample on my feelings, this is very sad.”
According to her, she “decided to share the messages and pictures sent by this person with everyone” so that all could see it.
She then let her blackmailer know that she refuses to be bullied as she was quite sure she was old enough to be his mother.
