Toronto police officers are searching for a man who scammed over $500,000 from a South African promoter, using Hip-Hop artists Drake and Nicki Minaj.

The man, Andrew Wilson, is accused of portraying himself as a high roller in order to scam people, to support his lavish lifestyle.

Police say Wilson was associated with Drake when the rapper was an up-and-coming artist in Toronto, but the two severed their business relationship years ago.

According to reports, Wilson uses old copies of a contract with Drake to convince the South African promoter that he was legitimate.

The South African promoter reportedly send $500,000 to an account in Singapore which was then transferred to a bank in Lebanon and has not been able to be account for since.

Wilson, 41, is accused of putting the money into an account owned by his 76-year-old Aunt, who is now facing charges as well.
