‘Catfish’ Scammer Infiltrates Philly High School Posing as Alicia Keys’ DJ

According to 6ABC, Jerez Coleman—a known scam artist otherwise known as Kidd Cole from an episode of MTV’s Catfish—gained entry to a Philadelphia high school by posing as Alicia Keys’ DJ. In a pre-arranged and -approved appearance, he spoke with students and recorded them singing, which has caused serious concern and alarm for parents.

Coleman called Philadelphia’s School District and said he was eager to speak with students of the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, gaining entry on Thursday and meeting with kids who performed for him. He presented himself as “DJ Official Silent Assassin” (which at the time would’ve yielded exactly zero Google results) and was accompanied by two men claiming to be security guards, and two women with video cameras.

“We sang for him,” a student who wished to remain anonymous said. “He talked to the students in a very low tone. We really couldn’t understand him. We were told that he was the DJ for Alicia Keys, but it doesn’t seem like that is the case.” The student said Coleman was “acting shady,” a feeling that made her Google the man (by one of his other handles, clearly) and discovering he once threatened President Obama.
