Ex-YBNL Artiste Olanrewaju ‘Pelepele’ is dead. The fast rising rapper was said to have taken his own life on Friday morning at his Ikorodu residence.
According to sources, the fast-rising rapper had been battling depression perhaps resulting from his inability to break into the Nigerian music industry after 10 years of working at it.
He dropped a freestyle video on social media, which, in retrospect, was a farewell message. The video was initially dismissed as another attempt at pulling a ‘Skiibii Mayana’ stunt.
There has been mixed feelings on social media with regard to Pelepele’s death but the general feeling, expectedly, is one of grief.
His former label boss, Olamide was yet to comment about this incident as at press time.
