After beating about the bush for weeks, Oladips, the controversial singer, has finally apologised to Nigerians for a viral announcement about his death.


On November 15, Oladips’ management announced that the rapper had passed away.

The management also released the rapper’s 17-track album.

Shortly after, there were however rumours suggesting that the rapper had faked his death to gain clout.


On November 23, the rapper shared a “proof of life” video on his Instagram page.

The development angered his fans and left controversies in its trail; with some Nigerians on social media curious about the rapper’s “ulterior motive”.

But in a recent interview with Naija FM, Lagos, Oladips said he is taking full responsibility for the “confusion and false alarm” caused by the claim.


“I apologise to Nigerians and my followers,” he said.

“I will never play with people’s emotions like that. It was never a prank. I am sorry for the confusion, distress and false alarm. I take full responsibility.

“From now on, I will make sure I’m surrounded by professionals because I feel like that’s where the problem started from. I’ve experienced a lot of things wey be say manager dey chop my money and wish me dead.

“It got to a point where I didn’t even have a manager again, it was just me and my boys so I feel like that’s where the problem comes from. Right now, I’m trying to select the right people and be sure they are professionals.”


Abdulrasheed Opeyemi, the personal assistant of Oladips, recently claimed the rapper was dead for three days.
