Somizi has taken to social media to threaten to close his only Facebook account due to a number of fake pages that have been created in his name.

The media personality commands a huge following on different social media platforms so some people have used his name to create accounts in order to cash in on his vulnerable followers.

The Metro FM presenter took to Twitter on Thursday, 16 July to expose four accounts that he said have been created on Facebook without his knowledge.

The star said his only account on the app is Somizi Buyani. He expressed that he is on the verge of deactivating it if the fake accounts are not dealt with soon.

"Facebook is having a field day with fake accounts using my name… these are just 4 of many… my only account SOMIZI BUYANI which I’m on the verge of completely discontinuing it if this problem is not fixed this time."

Still on the social media apps news, Briefly.co.za reported that Pearl Modiadie took to Twitter to let her fans know that she's still not happy after deleting her old account on the app.

The Metro FM presenter lost almost two million followers when her account on the micro-blogging app got hacked. The stunner expressed that she is not happy at all as she is currently on her way to only 50k followers after deactivating the old account.

The stunner's fans had to console her after she complained about the millions of followers she lost. Many of them told her that she mustn't mind losing the other followers because that is not a true reflection of the love and number of real fans she has in reality.

"It’s not about likes though... It’s social media currency which brings in the coins too! A community that’s taken years to build."
