Naturally, social media users were left laughing by the dumb trickster and his poorly thought-out scam. Many people humorously remarked that it must be Rihanna because of her signature "Oh na na" singing.

She, however, suspected that he may be a catfish when Theo said that he did not want to rush their relationship because he is a Nigerian prince.

Esther wanted to solve her suspicion so she went on a popular show called MTV’s Catfish UK after her friend, Anita, contacted the show on her behalf that she has been having suspicion about Theo.

Though they had always talked since they met on Instagram, the young man had never at any moment agreed to FaceTime with her.
