Priddy Ugly is one of the first celebrity victims of hacking in 2019, but luckily he had a full squad to back him up and help him recover his account.
It all began when Bontle Modiselle warned the masses that her boyfriend’s Twitter account had just been hacked:
The person in question appeared to be sharing content in a language that most people didn’t quite understand, but the Modiselle sisters quickly tracked the hacker down and began to report him to the authorities:
All of this was futile in the end, unfortunately, because Priddy Ugly ended up having to create a brand new social media account anyways.
The rapper is not the first person to fall victim to hacking. In the last couple of years, we've seen so many stars sharing their frustrations about being hacked on different social media platforms like WhatsApp, Twitter and Instagram.
In December 2018, Luthando "Lootlove" Shosha was hacked and she panicked after realising that she could possibly lose her Instagram account (with over 700K followers) forever. Fortunately for the TV and radio presenter, none of that happened as she was able to recover her profile.
In future, the best way to prevent hacking is to change your password at least every three to six months.
