Erica Nlewedim has said before she strolled on the pathway of celebrity stardom, that a man claiming to be famous Nigerian celebrity Uti Nwachukwu nearly scammed her.
Interestingly, the BBNaija Season 6 star revealed this information to the real Uti Nwachukwu on the Behind the Glam show.
Erica said in her desperation to make it at all costs as a budding model, she encountered a man who nearly ripped her off by posing as the celebrated Uti Nwachukwu.
Here’s all that she said;
“Immediately I graduated from uni cuz I was like “Ah I want to blow in this industry” and everything, I used to model. Like I wasn’t actually out there but I used to tell everybody I was a model. So I would be doing photoshoots up and down. And then I posted a lot on Facebook then somebody approached me.
The person’s name was Uti so I thought I was talking to you (the real Uti Nwachukwu). The person was like oh would you like to do a billboard shoot? I said okay. The person said oh give me your BB Pin. I gave my pin. We were chatting.
But the person was always so rude. I was like wait, I didn’t approach you, you approached me. So what happened? You’re the one that approached me. Then he was like “Oh, don’t you know I’m Uti. I have things to do. I’m busy. So if I’m talking to you, you better be grateful.” I now started suspecting that yeah, something is wrong.
Then he now asked me for 50k. I said “Okay. You are so called Uti right? You’re literally rude to me because oh, I should be grateful. Then how come 50k is your problem?”
I insulted him. Ah! I insulted him. No no no no, ah! All the insults I was stomaching from the guy, immediately I just knew ah this one is fake. I said ehnnnn, they wrote mumu on my forehead shey, I will give you fire for fire.”
