Publicity Stunt? See How Singer Skiibii Faked His Own Death Today


Earlier today the Nigerian industry had a bit of a scare when reports that Five Star Music act, Skiibii had passed away at the age of 22. According to the report, the singer collapsed in his sitting room and died.

However, a few minutes ago Kcee called Linda Ikeji to say Skiibii hadn’t died. Kcee said he received the news of his collapse this morning but said he wasn’t sure what was going on because he was not in Nigeria. Kcee also said his brother told him Skiibii had been found with no pulse and wasn’t breathing. They apparently rushed him to the hospital and after hours there, he was revived.

Now as you can imagine, Nigerians are calling bs on this story, and claiming that Skiibii only faked his death as a publicity stunt. (Skiibii is trending now in Nigeria by the way, and a number of celebrities including Wizkid and Davido took to social media to share their condolences which they have now taken down.)

Amidst all of this drama though, upcoming Nigerian actor, Mike Godson, is standing up to Skiibii’s defence and you really need to read what he is now saying. See it after the jump:

A number of fans have already began bashing Mike for his comment asking him if that is enough reason for a celebrity to fake his own death.

MH Readers, abeg what is your take on all of this drama today given all the information you have read?
