Nigerian rapper Oladipupo Oladimeji, also known as Oladips, has berated his colleague, Qdot, for announcing him alive after reports of his death went viral.
Oladips accused Qdot of seeking attention by prematurely proclaiming his well-being during a difficult period in a series of Instagram stories on Thursday.
Oladips also chastised a social media user for providing an outdated video as proof of his current status and accused bloggers of misleading the audience.
He wrote, “I know there is cruise, there is clout, and then there is truth…” But the reason why you posted ‘My gee is alive’ at a time when my family was unsure of my situation is so appalling and uncalled for.
“There was never a video or post of me telling Nigerians, ‘heyyy everyone, it’s a prank!’ It was all speculation based on hearsay and clout chasing, bloggers misleading gullible Nigerians for likes and comments, and the smart ones know how to put 1 and 2 together, so I am not bothered.
“I was not with my phones or online all that period. Sheybi nah person wey even dey healthy dey remember social media!
” Anyway, just in case I’m not as accessible or as kind as I used to be, Nah, people like this boy because am I helping the boy? That short clip he posted almost ruined me, and I don’t think he understands the gravity of what he’s done yet! but he will.”
However, Oladips’ coworker and close acquaintance, Qdot, tweeted a picture of the rapper the next day, confirming that he was still alive.
