Nigerian rapper Oladipupo Oladimeji, widely known as Oladips, has vehemently denied allegations of faking his death to promote his new album, ‘Superhero Adugbo.’
The controversy began when his management, on November 15, announced his supposed demise on social media, triggering a wave of condolences and mourning from fans and the music community.
However, the narrative took an unexpected turn when several associates, including rapper Qdot, refuted the death claims, asserting that Oladips was very much alive.
The rapper himself took to social media with video evidence, showcasing his well-being and dispelling the rumors surrounding his alleged death.
In a recent development, Oladips addressed the speculation through his Instagram story, specifically pointing fingers at Qdot for allegedly misleading the public.
He expressed his disappointment, stating that Qdot rushed to make a public announcement about his well-being “at a time my family was unsure of my situation.”
Oladips lamented the misleading nature of the posts, accusing Qdot of creating the impression that they had recently communicated when, in reality, their last conversation occurred on January 2, 2022.
He said: “I know there is cruise. There is clout. And then there is truth!
“Qdot, the reason why you posted ‘My gee is alive’ at a time my family was unsure of my situation is so appalling and uncalled for. I dey where I dey struggle with my life, you dey post ‘My gee is alive.’ Unnecessarily misleading everyone. Made it look like me and you just had a conversation.
“Bro, I went through it and anything could have happened. The last me and you had any conversation was January 2, 2022. I get proof and I will soon tell the story in full! Cos why una dey always do like this for this industry tori olorun?”
