Conman Oluwamayola Ajayi, 31 year-old Nigerian gospel artiste based in the United Kingdom has been jailed for six years and half for internet dating fraud.

An acclaimed gospel singer who used a dating site to steal more than £120,000 from lonely women by posing as a pilot, oil executive and grieving widower has been jailed for six-and-a-half years.

Oluwamayola, preyed on four single women on popular dating website, using a series of aliases and outlandish stories to fleece them of their cash.

He even sent email threats, purportedly from a captor, claiming he had been kidnapped and would be killed if a ransom was not paid.

Ajayi, who was nominated for best international act at the 2011 Gospel Music Awards under his stage name MaioJoe, was jailed for conspiracy to defraud at Snaresbrook Crown Court with Judge Sarah Paneth saying that it was clear he intended to defraud his victims ‘for much more money’ than he did.

He blew all the money on a luxury lifestyle, including a holiday to South Africa etc.
