Veteran Nigerian singer, Queen Salawa Abeni, has exposed a man named Jason who blackmailed her using her old “nude photos.”
The singer who took to her Instagram page said she received some WhatsApp messages from an unknown man threatening to tarnish her career of over 45 years by exposing her nudes.
She shared several screenshots of the messages she received which showed the said ‘Jason’ asking her to make payments to stop him from releasing the photos.
The 58-year-old musician expressed sadness that anyone would want to release nude photos that could have been taken in a hospital or with her partner.
The Instagram post reads thus: “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!!”
She, however, did not confirm if the pictures were hers or not.
