The story was reportedly about a different artiste called Obrafour, but the headlines blurred that distinction enough to get many of his fans worried he might have been the one involved.
In a statement posted on his Facebook page, the rapper assured fans he was not the one involved in the accident, and that he was fine.
In a second statement, he thanked fans for the tremendous show of support shown him when they thought he had indeed been involved in an accident.
Read Obrafour’s words to fans below…
Yesterday, between the hours of 7 to 12 PM, I had several calls because a section of the media had reported an accident involving a gentleman who also bore my stage name Obrafour.
My condolences to his family and everyone close to the situation.
With everything happening in and around music these past few months, I think its understandable for you to react the way you did yesternight after the news broke.
I will like to thank every single one of you who took time out to call me or sent me a message on social media to check up on me.
I truly appreciate the love and support. Let’s keep praying for each other.
Thank you. – Obrafour
