Bukunmi Oluwashina, Q-Dot, and Others Reveal Oladips’ Death Hoax to Promote New Album
Popular Nigerian actress and singer Bukunmi Oluwashina, along with rapper Q-Dot, has confirmed that the purported death of Oladipupo Oladeji, known to many as Oladips, was merely a promotional stunt to garner attention for his upcoming album.
Oladips, a rapper, songwriter, and performing artist from Ogun State, Nigeria, found himself at the center of a death hoax that sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry and fans alike. However, it has been revealed that the artist is very much alive, and his “death” was a carefully orchestrated plan to drum up excitement for his new album.
The hoax unfolded when a video surfaced online showing Oladips appearing weak and distressed, questioning his manager, Rasheed, for leaving him alone in the house despite his repeated pleas. Rasheed, in turn, explained that he had stepped out to retrieve Oladips’ medication.
Despite the seemingly convincing performance, several online sleuths uncovered inconsistencies that cast doubt on Oladips’ supposed death. These revelations, coupled with statements from Oluwashina and Q-Dot, confirmed that the entire incident was a marketing ploy.
This is not the first instance of a celebrity faking their death to gain attention. Over the years, several individuals have employed this controversial tactic to promote their work or generate buzz around their persona. While some may find such methods unethical, others view them as creative marketing strategies.
Regardless of one’s stance on the matter, it’s undeniable that Oladips’ death hoax has successfully captured the public’s attention. Whether it translates into album sales and renewed interest in his music remains to be seen.
