Contrary to the widely circulated news reports that popular Yoruba poet, Kunle Ologundudu is dead, Senator Babafemi Ojudu has debunked the news reports.

 The report said Kunle Ologundudu was assassinated by unknown “gunmen by the gate of his house in Lagos”, Nigeria’s commercial city.

“According to d family spokesman Mr. Abayomi, said his brother was killed as he was entering his house gate by four men that stopped by him on okada. People believed that the killing may have something to do with his latest album titled ILU LE”, the report added.

However, a fact check, shows that Kunle Ologundudu is not dead as widely reported in some section of the Nigerian media.

According to Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Kunle Ologundudu is not dead as wrongly reported by some online news platforms.


Babafemi Ojodu wrote: “I woke up early this morning to receive the post below from several of our people abroad to justify insecurity in Nigeria and the breakdown of law and order. “Oh if this could happen to a popular Yoruba akewi Nigeria has become a failed state”, one of them posted. 

“I was concerned and began to search for further information on this. I was told Mr Femi Salako who posted the story initially is a popular Akure based blogger with a substantial following. Efforts to reach him to find out the veracity of the story was unsuccessful. I eventually got across to Mr Kunle Ologundudu, the subject of this fake story . He spoke to me ‘from the dead’ and said he is hale and hearty and had no incident with gunmen. He said he has been inundated with calls from home and abroad since 2.00 am.”
