As they say, "Blackmailers always come back."
58-year-old Nigerian singer, Salawa Abeni, has been forced to release her nude pictures on Instagram to avoid being blackmailed by a certain man.
She said the scammer, who is threatening to tarnish her image and destroy her career of over 45 years, identifies himself as Jason and lives in Osun State.
Salawa Abeni took to her Instagram page to share screenshots of her chats and the said nude pictures and wrote:
"Good morning my Family, friends and Fans. I have something very important to tell you and I will really appreciate your audience. I am very disappointed that someone somewhere will try to tarnish my image and threaten to destroy my career of over 45 years.
This morning, I received messages from somebody threatening to expose very old pictures of me and in the process, blackmailing me for money. 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. So I have decided to share the messages and pictures sent by this person with everyone for you all to see! Thank you and God bless you! For you the blackmailer, I refuse to be bullied by you as I’m sure that I’m old enough to be your MOTHER!!"
