Various scams have been circulating over the past couple of months using well-known Namibian personalities.

Recently, Martin Morocky, popularly known by his stage name King Tee Dee, has fallen victim to such a scam.

It has been alleged that King Tee Dee appeared on a local television broadcaster announcing a loophole, which claims to transform anyone into a millionaire within three-to-four months. It further uses his brand to call on anyone to join a new cryptocurrency auto-trading programme called Bitcoin Code.

The reports further demonstrate how to become a member and make money overnight, misleading many by using King Tee Dee's brand.

King Tee Dee recently denied his involvement or association with Bitcoin Code and cautioned all of his supporters to refrain from engaging with the scam. “We would like to make it clear that this link and any allegations on this subject are totally unfounded. We at Mshasho, are committed to conducting business in a responsible and transparent manner, and I take these allegations very seriously. “Thus, we will try to inform as many people as possible to be aware of money-making scams which have robbed many,” said King Tee Dee.

Members of the public are urged to report information to the police to ensure that fraudsters are stopped immediately. Any announcements and messages from King Tee Dee will only be communicated through verified social media accounts, as well as his official public relations agency. Any other sources are part of a scam.

In other news, King Tee Dee is nominated at the 6th Annual African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) in Dallas, Texas in the best Best Rap Category. “Please help me win it by voting and posting it on all your social media platforms. Thanks in advance,” said King Tee Dee.

AFRIMMA is the sole award ceremony in the diaspora that caters to all music genres including but not limited to Afrobeats, Assiko, Bongo, Decale, Funana, Genge, Highlife, Hiplife, Kwaito, Lingala and Soukous.
