Nigerian rapper Oladipupo Oladimeji, known as Oladips, has clarified that he did not fake his own death in order to promote his latest album, ‘Superhero Adugbo’.
Contrary to the declaration made by his management on November 15, 2023, via his Instagram page that the rapper died on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, Oladips said he it was not intentionally done.
But Rapper Qdot and Oladips’ other associates had taken to social media to announce that Oladips was indeed alive and kicking.
Oladips, who also shared a compelling video confirming his well-being, sparked speculations that he deliberately faked his death to generate buzz for his upcoming project.
But, in response to the rumours on his Instagram story, the rapper blamed Qdot for the allegation that he faked his own death, accusing the ‘Ibadan’ crooner of rushing to announce on social media that he was alive at a time his (Oladips) family “was unsure of my situation.”
Expressing his frustration, the rapper lamented that Qdot created a false impression of a conversation between them, clarifying that they hadn’t spoken throughout this year.
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?”
