Willom Tight denies Facebook account


Popular Afro-reggae musician Wilbroad Muponda has distanced himself from a Facebook imposter using his stage name, Willom Tight.

The Wekumaruzevha hit-maker, who rose to fame following his collaboration with rasta-kwasa musician Dino Mudondo on the popular hit Chirangano, said he does not use the stage name on the popular social network site.

“I was shocked to find that someone is using my stage name on Facebook and a lot of my fans have requested friendship with him thinking it is my account,” said Muponda.

“I am yet to find out the reason behind this impersonation, but I would like to set the record straight that on Facebook I use my real name, Wilbroad Muponda, not Willom Tight.

“If you check on his profile he comes from Mount Darwin while I am from Mutare. He stays in Mbare, but I stay in Mabvuku.”

The Tight Family frontman said it was disheartening to note that Willom Tight the imposter has thousands of friends while he only has 70 friends on Facebook.

Asked what action he has taken so far to rectify the issue Muponda said he has been issuing statements at his shows while consulting.

“I am trying to alert fans at my shows and even on Facebook while consulting experts on what sort of action I can take to stop this imposter. I will do everything in my power and even report the matter to the police if need be, because he might ruin my stage name.

You are aware that people have a tendency of posting nasty things on Facebook.”

The vastly-talented reggae musician is, however, not the first person to fall victim to imposters who take advantage of other people’s popularity and create accounts on social networks using their names.

Mamelodi Sundowns and Warriors bustling striker Nyasha Mushekwi and prolific dancer Sandra Ndebele, were victims, while businessman Philip Chiyangwa is also on record distancing his daughter from a Facebook imposter recently.

Impersonation is not restricted to the arts industry alone as celebrities across the world and their families have fallen prey to cyber crime.
