LOS ANGELES (MarketsXplora) – American singer-rapper Doja Cat, whose real name is Amala Zandile Dlamini, reported on Monday that her X (formerly Twitter) account had been compromised in an apparent attempt to promote a cryptocurrency token on the Solana blockchain.

The artist, known for hit songs like “Say So” and “Kiss Me More,” took to her Instagram account, which boasts 24 million followers, to alert fans of the security breach.

“My Twitter’s been hacked. These messages are not from me,” Doja Cat stated in an Instagram story posted Monday evening Eastern Time.

The compromised X account, followed by 5.6 million users, posted multiple messages endorsing a token with the ticker DOJA. “Keep buying DOJA,” read one post, while another proclaimed it “The real queen of Solana DOJA,” referencing a recent crypto-related post by fellow rapper Iggy Azalea.

“Get rugged if yall want but I’m cool with that girl in real life so yall f*cked up with that tweet hackers.”

This incident follows a similar occurrence last month involving the legendary metal band Metallica, whose X account was also reportedly hacked to promote a Solana-based memecoin.

As of press time, representatives for Doja Cat had not responded to requests for comment on the situation.
