The untimely demise of Oladipupo Oladimeji, popularly known as Oladips, has left a somber atmosphere among Nigerian celebrities, who are expressing their sorrow and reflecting on the challenges many artists face, including battles with mental health.

Oladips passed away on Tuesday night, as confirmed by his management in a statement shared on his Instagram page on Wednesday. The management revealed that Oladips had been grappling with internal struggles for the past two years.

In a video message shared on Instagram, Idowest expressed his grief and emphasized the prevalence of depression within the entertainment industry. He mourned Oladips and drew attention to the difficulties artists face, urging everyone to be more considerate and supportive.

“We are still mourning Mohbad, and now Oladips has joined him. What killed the boy? Depression.

“I’m about to share my own two cents. When Oladips was talking about his struggles, some people said he was chasing clout and now he has died. He is not alone. We plenty wey be say we dey always dey depressed.

“I’ve been sending my music materials to my colleagues to help me share on their social media platforms but they always ignore me. When I die now, they will start posting about me. You all like showing love to the dead.”

Singer Viktoh criticized those who dismissed Oladips’ previous messages about his health as mere clout-chasing. In a video on Instagram, Viktoh stressed the importance of understanding and reaching out to people, emphasizing the need for genuine concern for one another.

Viktoh said, “You can’t even retire from being a man for a few seconds to speak about the problems you’re going through without people thinking you’re chasing clout or weak.

“I’ve had my own experience but I thank God for my life. But you all need to check up on people, call people. May God bless the soul of Oladips. It’s really sad.”

On-air personality and rapper Nnamdi Nwabasili, known as N6, called out those who accused Oladips of seeking attention while he was dealing with health issues. He highlighted the reluctance of individuals to open up about their struggles due to fear of judgment.

He wrote, “Na why Man no dey Speak out. Shey you all were saying he was clout-chasing not up to 24 hours ago.

Blaqbonez expressed deep pain at Oladips’ passing, particularly lamenting the fact that the rapper, who was set to release an album, would not witness its potential success.

He wrote, “RIP Oladips. This one pained me way too much, way way too much. Someone that was supposed to drop an album tomorrow, now it’d go number 1 and once again the artist won’t get to see it, stupid life.”

Veteran singer Jaywon and rapper Chinko Ekun conveyed their condolences, expressing the profound impact of Oladips’ departure.

Singer veteran Jaywon mourned via X, “Oladips this is too much.”
