Popular Nigerian actress, Etinosa Idemudia has condemned the management of a Nigerian rapper, Oladipupo Oladimeji, professionally known as Oladips, for staging a death stunt to promote his upcoming album.
Naija News recalls that Oladips, on Tuesday, November 14, was rushed to an unnamed hospital due to an undisclosed illness, according to the post shared on his Instagram page.
The management of the rapper, however, on Wednesday, November 14, in another post, claimed that the rapper had passed away after battling for his life.
The statement from the management reads: “We are saddened to inform the general public that Oladipupo Olabode Oladimeji aka 0ladips passed away yesterday Nov’ 14th, Tuesday evening, at exactly 10:14 pm.

“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).- Management.”
A close friend of Oladips, QDot, however, took to his Instagram page on Thursday night to reveal that the rapper is alive and not dead.
