‘Dead’ Oladips resurfaces with ‘Proof of life’, Yul Edochie reacts
Nigerian rapper Oladips has shown up after he was previously reported to have died away by his management.
The rapper come forward to prove that he is alive and well.
Oladips’ management had earlier released a statement claiming that the rapper passed away on November 14, 2023.
But, two days after the death announcement, his close associate, Qdot, said the rapper is alive and well.
Oladips may have resolved the controversy that surrounded his death rumour when he posted a video on his Instagram story on Thursday showing him vibing to a song from his new album, ‘Superhero Adugbo’.
Captioning the video, he wrote, “Proof of life.”
Also in a video, captioned in Yoruba language “Orisha bi Iya Kosi” (There is no deity like a mother), he was seen casually lounging outside a house with an elderly woman, who is believed to be his grandmother.
The video has since sparked viral reactions with some Nigerians astounded at the turn of events and berating the rapper for faking his death to remain relevant in the industry.
Yul Edochie’s reaction
Meanwhile, actor Yul Edochie has reacted to Oladips’ antics, saying Nigerian’s lack of interest in the rapper and his music at the moment is an indication of the fake love people show to the dead.
Edochie went online to ask about what has become of the singer who faked his death in a PR stunt.
He opined that people are no longer posting the musician because he is alive.
He stated that had Oladips been truly dead, people would consistently post his photos and music consistently, maintaining that people tend to show more love to people when they’re dead than when they’re alive.
“What’s up with the guy who faked his death? Una no wan trend am? Nobody is posting him? Nobody is posting his music cos he’s still alive. lf he was truly dead by now, una no go let people rest.
Everybody will be posting his picture & his music.
To support dead people dey sweet una pass the ones wey dey alive. Support him now that he’s alive, jealousy and envy no go let una.”
On his own part, controversial singer, Portable, has condemned Oladips for faking his death just to promote his new album.
Portable, who is set to drop his album, ‘Street Donjazzy’ slammed Oladips for faking his death to promote his new album.
He said, “I’m not tired of life now. I’m still very much alive. I can’t use my own life to play in such a way because I’m still very much happy with life. I will not use my death to promote album.”
