On Tuesday news broke out that Portharcourt-born Nigerian Rapper, Sky B was reportedly confirmed dead at the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri, Imo State after battling with a heart attack.
Barely 48 hours after the news report, findings have revealed that it was a rumour and Sky B is very much alive and not dead.
Many persons close to the “I’m Calling” crooner made frantic efforts, even going to his family compound in Port-Harcourt to verify the news about his death, which proved false.

Some say he faked his death to revive his dying musical career while others say Sky B was on a movie set in Owerri where he had a role of acting dead, due to heart attack, but some bloggers reported that he was dead.
So what really happened was that SkyB was shooting a movie in Owerri and in the movie,he had a role of acting dead, due to heart attack…so that was all…then bloggers just carried it that SkyB is dead.
May God have mercy on us…
