Idols winner traumatised by fake Facebook account


Idols SA Season 12 winner Noma Khumalo revealed that someone created a fake Facebook account using her name and are making her life a living hell.

“This person is making my life a living nightmare,” Noma says.

She says this person took most of her followers and people are convinced that it is her posting updates.

“This person is really making my life difficult. They have over 74 000 likes on a fake page,” she adds.

The account holder recently shared false information regarding Noma starting a record company for up-and-coming artists.

“I am not starting a record company. I am still building my own brand, why would I start a record label now?” she said in a rage.

Noma also added that this person posts things that are offensive and not related to her career and this is tainting her brand.

“This person has shared some pornographic pictures and videos using my name and I am very upset. They have also been posting pictures of watermelons and things that are not career-related, why would someone do such a thing?”

Noma says she has attempted to report the mater.

“I have tried to report this page on Facebook and nothing has happened. I have also sent out numerous messages to the account holder but this person does not care, it seems,” Noma adds
