The Instagram post states, “We are saddened to inform the general public that Oladipupo Olabode Oladimeji aka OLADIPS, passed away yesterday, November 14th, at exactly 10:14 p.m. We are still in shock as we speak!

“For over 2 years, he has kept his battles within himself; his body is now with his family & 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. (Amen)”

Oladips began to pursue his musical dreams at the age of sixteen. He began with lyrics slams before gaining fame among Facebook rap battlers. He defeated Don Geo in one of his most significant battles.

Oladips’ victory at the D’banj-hosted competition “King is Here” might be considered his biggest and first break. He was recognised by other rappers as well as the general public. Oladips also inked his first record deal with EDGE Records, a Nigerian music label.

Since then, he has had the opportunity to perform on stage alongside several exceptional and prosperous Nigerian celebrities who are leaders in the music industry. Furthermore, our emerging star was regularly invited to perform at events across several African countries.
