Yemi Sonde, the Chairman of Yemi Sonde Media Group, owner of the popular radio, YES FM, has cried out to the general public as he is being blackmailed with a video of his nude.
In a statement issued by the ace broadcaster on Tuesday, December 13, 2022, Sonde said the blackmailer was in possession of his nude videos.
Yemi said the blackmailer who claimed to live in Cote D’Ivoire, sent him a video of him alone in his bedroom and repeatedly demanded sums of money which ranged from N500,000 to N1,500,000 to keep it off social media.
The blackmailer also contacted some of the broadcaster’s friends with the said video, asking the friends to prevail on Sonde to part with the blackmail money, or see him get embarrassed by its release.
Sonde further said that the blackmailer demanded to be paid urgently if the broadcaster wanted him to delete the videos and threatened to circulate them all over social media in order to embarrass him, his family, and destroy his businesses.
Yemi, however, said he had told the blackmailer to go ahead with his threat as he would not part with his hard-earned money to any blackmailer.
The statement reads,
“I am issuing this release to let Nigerians know that some powerful individuals who are bent on destroying me have orchestrated this blackmail. I don’t know what I did to necessitate this but I know that they will fail,”
“I suspect some high net-worth individuals in society who got the blackmailer to go after me, having hitherto sworn to take me down.”
