According to an official statement from the label, “The wide spread rumor of Skiibii being dead that shook the airwaves and social media platforms this morning is confirmed false. The 22 year old talented musician signed to Five Star Music is fine and alive.
“Given that he had a minor health issue this morning, he collapsed and was rushed by his brother and his friends to a nearby hospital from where he was taken to a more equipped hospital by the intervention of the CEO of Five Star Group for further treatment.
“Skiibii is currently recuperating at a private hospital, Please disregard negative information hitherto passed. Death is not something to play with. Kcee and Five Star Manager Soso Soberekon are currently in Europe on a tour.”
“On his suppose demise as confirmed by Five Star Music or the label’s manager – At best, it was a miscommunication. The official social media accounts for future updates on every thing as regards the label, artistes and music are: @sososoberekon @iam_KCEE,@iam_emoney1 @iamMrSongz @Skiibii and @FiveStarMusicNG (on Instagram). Thank you for your concern and support.”
However, the rapper has received a deluge of criticisms from celebrities who thought he might be staging a fake death rumour as publicity stunt.
