Rapper Oladips has criticized fellow artist Qdot for swiftly declaring his continued existence in response to the false news of his “death.”
Oladips accused Qdot of seeking attention by promptly publicizing his survival.
He 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 & uncalled for.
“I dey where I dey struggle with my life you dey post ‘my gee is alive’. Unnecessarily misleading everyone. It made it look like me and you just had a conversation.
“Bro I went through it hard & anything could have happened.
“The last time I & you had any conversation was Jan 2nd 2022. I get proof & soon I’ll tell the story in full!!!
“Cos why una dey always do like this for this industry tori Olorun?”
He went on to call out a social media user who posted a 2-year-old video of them together as proof that he was alive.
He also accused bloggers of “misleading gullible Nigerians for likes & comments”. He did not state how Nigerians were misled by bloggers, considering that the news of his death came from his verified social media account and was signed by his management after a video of him writhing in pain while being rushed to hospital was also shared via his account. He has also not claimed that he was hacked.
On Nov. 13, a video of Oladips appearing to fight for his life was shared via his Instagram account. The following day, on Nov. 14, his death was announced via his page, though many suspected it was a publicity stunt because he had just released a song about dying young.
Then, on Nov. 17, Qdot announced that Oladips was not dead as he claimed, a move that angered Oladips and forced him to return to social media to show proof of life.
