In response to widespread rumors suggesting that he faked his death to promote his new album, ‘Superhero Adugbo,’ popular rapper Oladips, whose real name is Oladipupo Oladimeji, has vehemently denied the allegations.
The controversy arose after his management released a statement on November 15, 2023, announcing his supposed demise on November 14, 2023.
Contrary to the death hoax, several associates, including rapper Qdot, quickly refuted the claim, confirming that Oladips was alive and well.
The rapper himself presented video evidence to dispel the rumors, sparking speculations that the entire episode was a publicity stunt for his latest project.
Addressing the ongoing speculations on his Instagram story, Oladips accused Qdot of spreading false information, alleging that Qdot prematurely declared him alive on social media “at a time my family was unsure of my situation.”
Expressing his frustration, Oladips disclosed that he and Qdot hadn’t spoken since January 2, 2022, and emphasized his intention to share the full story soon.
Oladips wrote, “I know there is cruise. There is clout. And then there is truth! Qdot, the reason why you posted ‘My gee is alive’ at a time my family was unsure of my situation is so appalling and uncalled for.
I dey where I dey struggle with my life, you dey post ‘My gee is alive.’
Unnecessarily misleading everyone. Made it look like me and you just had a conversation.”
He further asserted his readiness to provide evidence to support his claims and expressed his dismay at the recurrent nature of such incidents in the entertainment industry.
