Nameless is not the first celebrity to lose his social media platform to hackers.

In 2018, DJ Pierra Makena’s Instagram page was also hacked, while Jalang’o lost recently access to his Twitter account and NTV anchor Dennis Okari lost his Facebook account.

Comedian Flaqo also briefly lost access to his YouTube account in October 2020.
