Coast based singer Nyota Ndogo is suing a Ugandan Facebook page that is purporting to have been responsible for pairing her with her Danish husband Henning Nielson.
The Facebook page, called Ugandan Single White Men – Sugardaddies & Mummies, pairs young African men and women with white men at an undisclosed fee.
Nyota Ndogo told Nairobi News on phone on Monday that she got wind of the fraud from her Kenyan friend who lives in Tanzania.
The friend informed the singer that a picture of herself and her husband standing together was being used by the page to attract and also convince clients who might be doubtful.
“On Friday a friend of mine in Tanzania called me to inform me that a dating site has been using a photo of me and my husband on their site, using me as an example of a success story,” said Nyota Ndogo.
“The site asks for money from the people interested, and if they see a client is doubtful, they show them my picture as proof. My husband and I never met on any dating site, we met while I was in was on a music tour in America,” she added.
The picture was posted on the Facebook page on March 9, 2016 and identifies Nyota Ndogo and her husband as “Sarah and Raymond”.
The singer said she has already sent some of her representatives to Uganda who will take legal action against the Facebook page.
