Rumored Death Of Ebenezer Obey
The Juju legend, Ebenezer Obey yesterday debunked the news of his rumoured death which has somewhat wrongfully gone viral.
Speaking with Vanguard through his PA, Mr Odunbaku, the Miliki maestro said he’s alive and feeling fine.
“People have been calling me to confirm if I am dead or alive but I want to assure you I’m alive. The news is false” he was quoted by the PA, Mr Odunbaku
Another of the entertainer’s sons Tolu who himself is a singer further revealed that his father had traveled from Abeokuta shortly before the rumour started.
“Nothing is wrong with my father. He is hale and hearty. He left Abeokuta for Lagos on Friday (July 3, 2020). Rumours about his death are wicked and unfounded. My father is enjoying himself in Christ. Those spreading the said news are probably looking for ways to attract people to their websites. We have nothing against them than to pray for them. But as for my father, he is doing well. He is not even sick.”
Also speaking out about the news of his rumoured death, the Juju legend through his personal assistant Odubaku said he is hale and hearty.
“People have been calling me to confirm if I am dead or alive but I want to assure you I’m alive. The news is false” he was quoted by Odunbaku.
In another confirmation to TribuneOnline, the “Miliki” hitmaker is quoted as saying:
“I dey kampe and there is nothing wrong with me. I am surprised with the rumour too and I don’t know where it came from. I have been receiving several calls and I want to tell people not to express worry about the rumour because I am fine and active. The public and my fans at large should disregard the news.”
This is not the first time the news of the death of the juju maestro has been falsely peddled.
