Security Expert Warns Public Figures To Be Concerned About Their Security

Security Expert Warns Public Figures To Be Concerned About Their Security
Abu Safian Blay

Cybersecurity Consultant, Abu Safian Blay, has cautioned entertainers and other members of the public to take their safety more seriously.


His advice comes in reaction to the untimely passing of South African rapper AKA, who was fatally shot in the head in Durban. According to the security expert, public personalities and the general public tend to flaunt their lifestyle on social media, making it easy for them to be targeted. He spoke on 3Music TV’s Culture Daily.


“If I am an up-and-coming artiste and I decide to showcase everything I do; I go to this bar I show my current location and I share a status about myself. I go to a different place and show the location. When an attacker or a malicious person wants to locate you it becomes easier because you posting your status regularly gives them a trend or a pattern in your life.”


Moving forward, Abu Safian Blay suggested that individuals should learn how to control the location settings on their phones so as not to give themselves away.


“Never think that nobody pays attention to whatever we do. From experience, before you take a picture, they normally ask you do you want to give the photo permission to keep track of your location. A lot of people do answer yes but then you should always set it as no because you wouldn’t want to send your picture out there with your location embedded in it. So we should make sure that the right settings are done on our phones.”




Two years after the passing of his girlfriend Anele Tembe, AKA died at the age of 35. His daughter Kairo Owethu Forbes is his only successor.
