A “proof of life” video of Oladips, the Nigerian rapper, has been shared on his Instagram page — a few days after he was reported to have died.


On November 15, Oladips’ management announced that the artiste had passed away after battling personal struggles for over two years.

The news of his death came as a shock to fans and colleagues in the industry.

Shortly after, the management released the rapper’s 17-track album titled ‘Superhero Adugbo’.


Suspicions arose recently when Wavy, a longtime friend of Oladips, posted a video with the rapper claiming “he is alive”.

He further alleged that the rapper had faked his death and would return online if his album reached the top of music charts.

On Thursday, the video of Oladips was shared on Instagram.


The video shows him vibing to a song from his new album with his mother dancing in the background.

The caption reads, “orisa bi iya osi, proof of life”.

Checks by TheCable Lifestyle also showed that the post announcing Oladips’ death has been removed from his Instagram page.

The motives behind Oladips’ death hoax remain unclear.

Oladips was born on March 24, 1995. He hails from Ogun state.


The rapper gained prominence after winning D’banj’s ‘King Is Here’ competition.

The win earned him a record deal with Edge Records label owned by Reminisce, another rapper.
