Rapper Lil Wayne has incorrectly pronounced Lamar Odom dead on Twitter. To make matters worse, sixteen hours later, the tweet is still up.
Former Laker (and ex of Khloe Kardashian) Lamar Odom is currently in critical condition at Las Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center after being found unconscious in a nearby brothel over the weekend. Meanwhile, back in 2013, the YMCMB head honcho, Lil Wayne was “killed” by the internet when rumors began circulating that he was near death and had been read his last rites.
One might think that an experience like that would make Dwayne a bit more sensitive to the accurate announcement of someone’s death on social media. But it hasn’t.
Former Bayelsa State Governor Diepreye Alamieyeseigha has been reported dead.
The Bayelsa State Commissioner for Information, Esueme Dan-Kikili, confirmed to Channels Television that the former governor died of cardiac arrest on Saturday. He reportedly slipped into a coma two days ago and was placed on life support.
There were reports during the week that the British Government was determined to resurrect an outstanding case of money laundering against the former governor and had requested for his extradition to London.
Alamieyeseigha, who was facing money laundering charges, jumped bail and returned to Nigeria and has since then refused to answer summons for trial to continue.
