Oladips, the rapper, has finally addressed claims that he faked his death for music clout.
On November 15, Oladips’ management announced that he passed away after a two-year personal struggle.
The news of his death came as a shock to fans and colleagues in the industry who immediately paid tributes.
Shortly after, the management of Oladips released the rapper’s 17-track album titled ‘Superhero Adugbo’.
But Wavy, a longtime friend of Oladips, would post a video with the rapper, claiming: “he is alive”.
He further said the rapper would return online if his album reached the top of the music charts.
This got public disapproval and gave credence to allegations that the rapper faked his death to gain music clout.
On Thursday, Oladips took to his Instagram to address the now-viral videos and claims.
He called out Qudus Fakoya, the singer fondly called Qdot, and accused him of “misleading everyone” about his health struggle during the death controversy.
He also reprimanded an individual purported to be the source of the claim that he has been healthy all the while.
In the long read-post, Oladips claimed that the clips being shared online portray him as being alive and well during the death controversy are old videos he had made about two years ago.
He said he never made a video of himself to admit the death controversy was a prank.
Oladips blamed the rumours on his associates in the music industry but didn’t tell the full story of what transpired.
