Is Oladips Truly Dead or It’s a Fake News?

Rapper Oladips is dead! Speculations surrounding death of Oladips is not a rumour anymore since the management have made a press release confirming the demise of the hip hop superstar.

Oladips Death Prank

Oladips may have faked his death to gain attention and promote his album. Right now we don’t know for sure because his management is yet to tell whether this was a joke or not.

from what a concerned Facebook user said;

Am I relieved that Oladips is alive? Yes. He is an ejiot to have played his death-prank because Skibbi fake him own still no blow. He didn’t think about how it will affect Zlatan his friend knowing that Mohbad passed not long ago.
He is obviously a selfish person who will do anything for the fame but you can’t blame him. I saw his playlist and tried seeing if I will see the one he featured Moh in let me listen because of Mohbad.

I didn’t see so I Waka pass. He is a good rapper whose spit game is lit but I won’t start listening to him because he has passed. Nope. It doesn’t work that way. Even if it turns out that he’s indeed no more I no go still listen because the timing is wrong. He specifically said he was going to release it in December. So why did they push it back?
That Oladips may have faked his death doesn’t mean it is right for internet trolls to continue trolling people. He only asked for prayers not money. The least you can do is waka pass. STOP TROLLING PEOPLE. IF YOU CANT HELP THEM, DO NOT HURT THEM.

All he needed to do was mention Mohbad in his media rounds and some of us would have posted him back to back. Maybe I for listen to some of his songs sef.
I wish him all the best as I expect the Nigeria Police Force to invite him for questioning. He should cuman tell the popo why he chose to disturb public space.
I wish Mohbad will turn up alive somehow and tell us it’s a prank.

Recently, another popular personality in Nigeria Qdot, confirm that rapper Oladips is alive, revealing that everything about the death of Oladips was planned for the purpose of promoting his new album. Other celebrities blamed Oladips for toying with their feelings by pulling such a heavy publicity stunt.
