Fake accounts are becoming the norm on social media. 

The latest victim is South African record producer, DJ Maphorisa. 

The muso grabbed social media headlines this week when a fake account was created in his name, announcing that he was giving away a total of R300 000 to fans. 

The person behind the fake account shared numerous messages, with some containing images of Maphorisa. 

In other posts, they used a bag full of cash notes.

The account, which has over 21k followers, started announcing a list of winners. 

The latest post read: “Congrats to today's R3K winner Sbahle Mguni. I will choose other winners tomorrow. I’m giving R3K to 100 lucky winners. All you need to do is like, retweet and comment #Maphorisa I will pick randomly. Make sure you are following me to win.”

The "Lorch" hitmaker took to Twitter cautioning fans against following the fake account. 

He said; “I am not involved here #WinR3k u on ur own @DJ_Maphorisa_ Ke(it’s a) scam I repeat KE SCAM”

Below are some of the Twitter reactions from fans, with some expressing disappointment as they thought their fave had dropped a single but it was the fake account getting traction.

 Just when you thought #Maphorisa is trending because he smashed a hit kanti he's giving away 3K 🤣🤣🤣

Lerato Kganyago also recently warned fans about a fake account in her name when peeps started asking about their prize. 

Kganyago’s fake account was giving away smartphones, which the Metro FM presenter insisted that she knew nothing about.
