Death in the Nigerian entertainment industry seems to be better acknowledged than life, seeing as news of an entertainer passing oftentimes earns more reactions from fans than news of their birthdays. Just recently, it was widely reported that veteran Nigerian singer, Sky B, has passed on. The reports claimed the Ma Bebe crooner died after suffering a heart attack and was found unconscious in his home. I am not dead – Sky B apologizes for ‘fake death’ news Source: Instagram Well, the singer has now taken to his Instagram page to reveal that he is very much alive and that he only died in a movie. He wrote: “The rumor about my death started after acting a movie last week in Owerri, I died in the movie not in real life. The main one that hit the net was the one that happened yesterday around 2:30am I had an emergency which I was taken to the hospital and I called a few friends to pray for me and I updated on my status that I was critically ill and needed prayers only for me to come out after hours of taking drip to hear about my death rumor everywhere. I was shocked at first but, now I thank God today that I didn’t die and I can’t die and please let no one post anything about my death.” Sky B further urged his fans to no longer post about his death but post his music as he apologised to them for the trauma the news of his passing put them through.
“Please I beg you to post about my music not about my death. I apologize to everyone who was hurt and to people who cared about me and also I apologize to my greatest fans home and abroad who called tirelessly and messaged to get facts. Please SkyB is strong now and ready to perform anywhere on any stage and dropping new songs too. I’m back fully with earth and water.”
