Fans Attack Top Actor, Odunlade Adekola Over His Death Rumour …Accused him of Cooking up the story to get more social media followers
Sequel to the death rumour that trailed top actor, Odunlade Adekola last week, it seemed that the Abeokuta based actor has joined the league of Nigerian entertainers who lie to the media with death rumour to earn cheap publicity.
Over the weekend, precisely Friday 30th October 2015, the actor was rumoured to have been robbed by a set of armed robbers somewhere in Abeokuta Ogun State-Nigeria and was said to have been shot dead. The news went viral not only in Nigeria but abroad especially among some diehard fans who couldn’t keep it to themselves but shared their feelings on social media.
After 48 hours that the bad tales circulated, the Ekiti man released an official statement to inform the general public that he was still very much alive.
However the statement appeared to have exposed the initial story as a strategy for Odunlade to have more followers on social media.
Read what he said, “It has come to my hearing that I ODUNLADE ADEKOLA was attacked and being robbed, there is no iota of truth in the news, I am hale and hearty, where the news surfaced from I don’t know. I am using this medium to thank all my fans, friends and family who have text and call. NOTE: my I.D on social media are:
Facebook Page ODUNOMOADEKOLA
PLEASE BE WARNED…. BEWARE OF SCAMMERS
IRE LOJU WA O MA RI OOO…… please Re.BC…
The fact that the actor sufficiently mentioned his social media IDs is now making many intelligent and keenly observant fans to suspect that the initial death story was orchestrated by Odunlade himself in a bid to later get curious and worried millions of members of the public to troop to his social media page to follow up.
“This Odunlade dude is such a scam. I’m highly disappointed. Who comes on Social media to market his social media account after such a bad news has been published about him?”, Shalewa Olaore blasted him on Facebook.
A Twitter user, MissyBee posted on a forum; “Did ay one see the poo of a statement Adekola posted about his death? Nigerian celebs will butcher their own family to earn cheap publicity such a shame I knew the death rumour was fishy and it’s the handiwork of the actor himself. I dare anyone to prove me wrng”.
“Sunday Dagboru has killed me with lie oooo. Just because of social media followers, dis guy tells lie with his ow life. I duff my hat Mr Desperado”,Yinka Yinusa stated.
