You can block users, but I'm not sure if you want to do that 1,500 times...
Wai Lana meditation music! I see so many accounts that are obviously just bots of this one as they only repost their music, and music by a Norwegian band called Frozen Heart .... https://soundcloud.com/the-frozen-heart who I think might not realise most, if not all of their 20k followers are bots. I can't connect to the Help Center at the moment but a proper violation report needs to be filled in about these guys.

why following random people like that ?..... it's the useless thing ever I have almost 2000 bots followers now

All are bots
I looked at the Frozen Heart facebook page and their posts have just 2 or 3 likes. Not consistent with the amount of followers and likes here.
I've noticed that "better" fake follower bots are sometimes set-up to follow a bunch of inactive SoundCloud accounts to try and make them look a bit more genuine. (I use "better" to mean a bit of work has gone into finding them names and pictures. Not just loads of user-9588347834 etc. and that nasty bruise color when there's no picture.)
Did you ever get this resolved? I've contacted and tweeted the SC support team with no response. I've not gained 3000 followers in 24 hours and it's not slowing down. I get more every 5 minutes and no-one from soundcloud is helping me at all. I'll be damned if I'm clicking "report" 3000 times haha!
nope i have 3000 followers now ... each of them is linked with Wai Lana meditation...
A friend of mine who has been monitoring these Wai Lana repost bots for a while sent a detailed report to SoundCloud today linking to the thread here. I notice that all the bots following both of you all seem to be following the same 40-or-so accounts, most of which haven't uploaded anything for about a year.
I had a look at some of the followers on my account and couldn't see this Wai Lana profile popping up anywhere, but I wonder if that's because I didn't dig deep enough. I'm now on 3400 fake followers *sigh* ... ah well, at least none of them have sent me links to porn (which makes a change).

Okay i randomly took one your bot follower
https://soundcloud.com/ynuwebawu1982 and first every bot follow almost the same person for example https://soundcloud.com/elektrodisko, https://soundcloud.com/soundsurfing, and me ......

and when you look who is subscribed to the bot profile it will lead you to this type of profile https://soundcloud.com/user-199536740 then you can see the Wai lana fucking music
FINALLY! The fake followers have stopped ... for now. The really annoying part is now I'm left with 3,300 fake followers on my profile, and the only way to get rid of them is sit there and report each one individually. Unless I get so bored that I've somehow sorted and paired all my socks, cleaned my car with a hoover, and then finished my tax return, I can't see myself doing that.

With any luck SoundCloud will be deleting all those fake accounts and that will remove them.
Wow... i don't know how but they're all gone ! Finally !
Having the same issue right now, 1500 fake followers overnight...

Did you fakes disappear just like that?

I gave up reporting manually after 30 or so lol
