A Nigerian pop star, Oladipupo Olabode Oladimenji, more popular as Oladips, has died.
According to a statement posted on his Instagram page, he passed away at exactly 10:14 pm on Tuesday night.
In the late hours of yesterday, videos made the rounds on social media of the Lalakukulala crooner seeming to have collapsed as his friends surrounded him.
Before the video started to circulate, Oladips had taken to his Instagram stories to cry out for help.
In the post, he mentioned one of his friends, @onlyonelifetime, and asked where he was. The rapper complained about how he had tried to reach the friend on the phone several times and how they knew he didn’t like to be left alone in the house, especially with his condition.
The statement noted that Oladips had kept his “battles within himself” for over two years.
Oladips’ body is now with his family, and funeral plans will be announced shortly.
