The Nigerian Twittersphere has been set abuzz following earlier claims that Okuneye Idris Olarenwaju, controversial internet personality and cross-dresser also known as Bobrisky, is dead.
On Monday morning, the internet was awash with speculations that the self-acclaimed transgender has passed away.
The rumour peddlers claimed that the Snapchat celebrity died at the Lagos state university teaching hospital, adding that he was involved in a fatal accident while returning from a party.
Although the crossdresser had debunked the rumour, some Nigerians have since taken to Twitter to express their opinions concerning the “fake news”.
“I heard @BobRisky234 is dead, I say make I ask the male or female #bobrisky,” a Twitter user said.
“AIT said Bobrisky is dead but man posted on his IG page 38 mins ago. What’s dead may never die,” another user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:

Naijaload issuing out a Breaking News : That Bobrisky is dead. So sad just because you want to attract traffic to your sites you are now wishing a fellow human being dead.

What if it’s the kidnapper/criminal called “Bobrisky” that Gov. Wike place a N30m bounty on his head that is dead and AIT mistook him for the female Bobrisky. 🤷🏽♂️
