Nigerian music producer, gospel singer, and Chairman of Fresh media group, Yinka Ayefele, has stepped forward to refute rumours that he has passed away by declaring that “I Am Alive And Well.”
In response to a supposed Tik Tok video that went viral on Tuesday and claimed that he was dead, Ayefele reacted.
It was gathered that the widely watched video, which was said to have been made by one David had his pictures and that of his triplet with a dirge from gospel singer Tope Alabi as the soundtrack.
Ayefele responded to the rumour by stating that he had several calls from friends and loved ones yesterday asking how he was doing.
The artist verified his existence and good health in an interview with the Nigerian Tribune on Tuesday night. He also questioned why someone would make a video to propagate false information about his death.
According to him, he will not die but live to declare the glory of God.
He said: “I will not die but live to declare the works of God. God knows the people behind this very dastardly act and will punish them. What will they gain from spreading rumours of my death?
“On Fresh FM, Ibadan this evening, I did my programme called Let’s Talk about It jointly with Enitan Olusegun Bamidele (EOB). My phone kept ringing while on the show and Whatsapp messages have jammed by my phone as well.
“A lot of my fans and admirers from all over the world kept calling to find out what really happened. On realising it was fake news, they started cursing those behind it.
“I wish to tell Nigerians that I am hale and hearty and not dead. I am not even under the weather. For someone to conjure up this kind of wickedness is disheartening. I have handed over those behind it to God who will mete out appropriate punishment to them.
“My fans, please disregard the rumour. If Jesus tarries, we will be here for a long time.”
