Popular Nigerian comedian and singer Carter Efe has shocked his fans by disclosing on Twitter that he is being threatened with publishing his intimate tape in response to the annoying trend of publishing celebrities’ sex tapes and nude photos.
The performer directly addressed the matter in a tweet that was published on his account, writing:
“I am here to publicly announce that I am being blackmailed and that my s*x tape will be released soon.”
After becoming aware of a potentially compromising tape, Carter Efe took the proactive step of informing his followers and the general public about the situation. Despite not revealing any specifics, he clarified that he would not consent to releasing the tape.
The announcement has caused a significant stir online, with fans and critics reacting strongly to the news. The skit maker is supposedly the victim of another attempted blackmail that has seen the release of intimate imagery of colleagues, content creators, and celebrities in the Nigerian entertainment space, which has understandably caused widespread outrage and concern. Many people have expressed their support for him. In contrast, others have used the incident to discuss more significant privacy and security issues online and point out the possibility of these celebrities being the architects of their leaks to chase clout. Overall, the situation has sparked much debate and speculation, and it remains to be seen what the long-term implications will be.
