Wright Ngubeni's impostor woes

An imposter posing as actor Wright Ngubeni is doing the rounds on popular social networks.

The conman has allegedly created accounts on social networks Facebook and Twitter posing as Ngubeni.

The imposter has been chatting up celebrities like as Lucia Mthiyane, twins Hlelo and Lelo of YFM, Loyiso Bala, and Bonang Matheba.

The fake Ngubeni has also been gossiping about 'Rhythm City' actors, accusing them of promoting night clubs.

Ngubeni himself currently appears on 'Rhythm City' as Thula.

The actor has confirmed he's aware that someone is pretending to be him.

Ngubeni told The Sowetan: "I noticed this late last year on Facebook that someone had created another account using my name. He used a picture of me but it looked like it was taken with a phone. I alerted people about this character."

According to Ngubeni the imposter wrote on his Twitter account: "I’m not on Facebook, someone there is pretending to be me. You will only find me on Twitter, so don’t believe everything you read."

Ngubeni says he's worried because the impostor discusses his colleagues on 'Rhythm City'.

"People will believe what he says on Twitter. For instance, he has said that he joined Twitter because of Bonang. Now people think that I want her," he said.
