The actions of Lebara were first know when an Instagram user, Lookn4johni in London posted a Lebara poster with the singer's photo which the user captioned:

"I stopped by to buy my calling card and right in front of me I saw this diva, screamed like she was right in front and in person. I had to increase my top up from £10 to £20. lol. My love for her though"

F78 News reported that they have also confirmed that the singer's legal team will begin proceedings soon.
