The singer made this known in an Interview with Afrobeats Podcast which went viral on Thursday.

On what caused the rumours, the singer disclosed that he was struggling with a condition that frequently made him lose consciousness.

He said, “Maybe many people don forget; like I started my career with news that Skiibii has died. Skiibii faked his death.


“At that time, I had that issue like I do black out. That happened to me like twice. On the plane to South Africa, me and Del B, he was sitting, and I went to the toilet and on my way back, I fell. They had to shut down the plane and attend to me before we could fly that day.

“The second one was in Kcee’s house. So this particular one happened when I went to see my brother. On my way out, I fell; as people saw how they rushed me into the vehicle they started to spread my death news.

“Before I knew it, when I opened my phone at the hospital, Wizkid don post rest in peace on his page, including Davido and others.

“I had to go to America for treatment. Now there are certain things I can’t take, like pineapple, lime and the rest.”

“I still remember Wiz’s caption; ‘All he wanted was to be happy.

“When I checked my phone, I was crying, I was going through real-life people con dey bash me, that was so crazy”
