Adekunle Idowu popularly known as Idowest accuses people in music industry of fake love in a heated reaction to the untimely death of fellow rapper Oladipupo Olabode Oladimeji, popularly known as Oladips
Oladips, 28, had reportedly battled an unknown ailment for two years before he passed away on Tuesday evening.
In a statement released by his management on Wednesday via his verified Instagram page, the heartbreaking news was shared with the public: “We are saddened to inform the general public that Oladipupo Olabode Oladimeji, aka Oladips, passed away yesterday, Nov 14th, Tuesday evening, at precisely 10:14 pm. We are still in shock as we speak!”
The statement continued, “For over two years, he has kept his battles within himself. His body is now with his family, and funeral services will be announced as soon as it is concluded! The family asked that we respect their privacy in this trying time. May God give us all the fortitude to bear this great loss.”
Oladips, before his passing, released a poignant song titled ‘Die Young,’ where he highlighted the phenomenon of people competing with the living but showing care and affection only after they are gone. The lyrics read, “People compete with the living and care for the dead. World people… What is the point of showing love to a good person when they aren’t with us?”
The news of Oladips’ death has led to an outpouring of grief in the music world, with his colleagues expressing their emotions.
However, fellow rapper Idowest had a particularly heated reaction. In a nine-minute video posted online, he voiced his frustration with the music industry, accusing it of “fake love.”
He passionately declared, “Many musicians are depressed, but people only pay attention after it’s too late.”
Idowest, who admitted to experiencing depression himself, did not mince words as he expressed his anger, saying, “I can’t die, but you people are fake. I’m cursing all of you planning to show me love when I’m gone.”
The music community is now grappling with the loss of Oladips, coming just two months after the death of rapper Oladimeji Aloba, known as Mohbad.
