Oladips: Could His Death Be A Publicity Stunt Or Real? Click To See Details

Nigerians were thrown into a state of mourning when the management of Oladips announced that the rapper and singer had passed away at the age of 28 on Tuesday, November 14, 2023.

The statement read, “We are saddened to inform the general public that Oladipupo Olabode Oladimeji, aka Oladips, has passed away on November 14 Tuesday evening at exactly 10:14 pm. We are still in shock as we speak. For over two years, he has kept (sic) his battles within himself. His body is now with his family, and funeral services will be announced as soon as it is concluded (sic). The family asked that we respect their privacy in this trying time. May god give us all the fortitude to bear this great loss (amen).”

Though the statement was made on Wednesday morning, the evening before, Oladips had posted a video on Instagram, asking an aide to drive him to the hospital. Soon after that, another video had emerged online, showing the corpse of Oladips in a car with some people believed to be his friends.

Nigerian singer, Raphael Omoniyi, aka Zlatan Ibile, had also shared his last messages with Oladips. In the chat, Oladips had written, “My brother, I don’t even know where to start from. Been on it for months, but I guess I’ll be fine.

“At this point, I don’t know. I thought it was stress because I don’t really sleep at night. Right now, it feels like my head is no longer on my neck. It feels light.”

However, A friend of Oladips with the handle, @only1wavytk_fka_sircoolest, took to his Instagram, saying “Thank God he is alive…He just finished eating turkey and rice. He is setting up ring light. If the album gets to number one tomorrow evening, he’ll post the apology video.”

He added, “Concerning my video trending about the death of Oladips, I want to clarify that the video is an old one; over two years.

“Secondly, I’m not sure if he is dead or alive. When people were posting that he was dead, I couldn’t believe because I don’t wish him death. It is not possible for Oladips to be dead and that was why I posted that he is alive. He probably might be depressed and going through one or two (sic) and may not be fine, because of the pressure of the album he wants to release and other life challenges. But please, let’s disregard any information. I am sorry for any issue or damage I might have caused because people seem to misunderstand my message. Oladips is a mentor and an inspiration to many young ghetto artists. I was not chasing clout. I was just wishing him well. How can I use such a situation to chase clout? I was only wishing him well.”

Meanwhile, Oladip’s latest album titled, ‘Superhero Adugbo’ was released by his management on Thursday, November 16.

Also in his latest single, ‘Die Young’, released on October 6, 2023, he rapped, “People compete with the living and care for the dead/world people will watch you beg for the bread/when you make it or you die is when they care for a friend/bandwagon, everybody jumps on the trend/damn, that was my friend, he was a cool guy/one of the best talents that I knew, he good die/let me post his picture on my story and my page/so the world can see my agony and my pain/reality check, this is everyone’s reality…”.
