LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Nigerian rapper Oladipupo Oladimeji aka Oladips, has chided 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Oladips also chastised a social media user for providing an outdated video as proof of his current status and accused bloggers of misleading the audience.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.
“I dey where I dey struggle with my life, you dey post ‘my gee is alive’. unnecessarily misleading everyone.
“You made it look like me and you just had a conversation.” Bro I went through it hard, and anything could have happened. The last time I and you had any conversation was January 2, 2022. I get proof, and soon I’ll tell the story in full!
“Why does Una Dey always do this for this industry, tori Olorun?” And to the stupid boy who posted that I was eating turkey and rice, say I dey ‘set ring light’, even posted a video of us hugging each other, making it look like I pranked Nigerians or pulled a stunt, for the record.
That video he posted is ‘2 years old’. I get proof. The video was made at my house in Orchid. Crazy thing, yeah? I don’t even live in that house anymore. Tey tey sef!
“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.”
Oladips’ management revealed on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, via his Instagram profile that the rapper was dead.
However, Oladips’ coworker and close acquaintance, Qdot, tweeted a picture of the rapper the next day, confirming that he was still alive.
