The rapper stated that he was actually unconscious for a couple of days due to being sick.
Nigerian indigenous rapper, Oladipupo Oladimeji, popularly known as Oladips has apologized to Nigerians for the controversy surrounding his death.
The 28-year-old rapper, who made a recent appearance as a guest on Naija 102.7FM radio station, explained that he didn’t mean to cause harm or prank his fans.
He began by saying, “To Nigerians and my core followers, I would never play with people’s emotions like that, I was actually sick sick. It was never a prank and I am really sorry for the false alarm and the distress. I take full responsibility. And from now on, I will make sure that I’m surrounded by professionals because, that’s where the problem started from.”
Furthermore, Oladips explained that he was unconscious for three days and it was during that time that his former manager annouced he passed away, which led to a great confusion.
“I was unconscious. My team members were hitting me and I wasn’t responding so they thought I was dead. My mum told them not to take me to the hospital that they should bring me to her. I was unconscious for two to three days. I went to the hospital but it wasn’t the regular hospital. I am a son of the soil, everybody knows that. So, I’m not going to pretend. Some traditional rites were performed to revive me. My mum did all she could to bring me back to life,” he continued.
Earlier on Monday, his personal assistant, Abdulrasheed Opeyemi had told the media that the incident surrounding Oladips’ death was a misunderstanding and the latter would soon address the issue.
He said, “I don’t know how to say this. It was a misinterpretation with the manager who has access to Oladips’ page. We all thought he was dead because he was not breathing until the third day when he was revived. By then, the manager had already shared the story. You are speaking with the right person in the label. The manager who shared the story has since been sacked. Oladips will soon address everyone on the issue.”
