Reports of my death were not fake – Rapper Oladips

Renowned rapper Oladipupo Oladimeji, known as Oladips, has debunked claims that he faked his death as a publicity stunt for his latest album, ‘Superhero Adugbo.’

The management of the musician had stated on November 15, 2023, via his Instagram handle, stating that he passed away on Tuesday, November 14, 2023.

However, several of his associates, including rapper Qdot, took to social media to dispute the claim and affirm Oladips was alive and well.

Oladips himself recently posted a video to demonstrate that he is still alive, thus fuelling speculations that he orchestrated the fake news about his death to garner attention for his new project.

However, reacting to the claims through his Instagram story, the rapper attributed the allegations of staging his death to Qdot. He claimed Qdot hastily declared he is not dead on social media “at a time my family was uncertain about my condition.”

Expressing surprise about the development,  Oladips said Qdot‘s actions made it seem like they had interacted recently when, in reality, they hadn’t spoken all year.

In his message, Oladips wrote,

“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?”
