Is Sarkodie Dead? Ghanaian Rapper Sarkodie is trending over the Internet after been rumored to have been shot twice on the chest at Johannesburg South Africa today.
He didn’t survive the attack, so the rumour went. This information was first posted by a Nigerian Blog and it triggered massive reaction on the various media outlet.
While some fake news is produced purposefully by bloggers seeking to make money from advertising, false information can also arise from misinformed social media posts by regular people that are seized on and spread through a hyper blogosphere..
It is unconfirmed story and series of posts on the singer’s twitter page suggests that Sarkodie is alive and hearty. The musician was reported dead over 4 hours ago and the internet is yet to recover from the unpalatable story.
A South African news site, Meganews360 added to the grief when it seconded the story of the rapper’s death. It wrote: “Ghanaian Fastest Rapper Sarkodie Shot Dead At The Movida Night Club”
