Skiibii Gains 8,000 Instagram Followers After Death Hoax; Was It Worth It?


Say what you want but Skiibii’s publicity stunt actually worked for him, at least to some extent.

After his death scare/hoax on August 14, 2015, Skiibii and his label 5 Star Music have been widely criticized and cursed at for the manner in which evrything went down.

However, one good thing that has come out from all this is that Skiibii’s followers on Instagram has increased significantly.

In less than two weeks since his death incident Skiibii has gained 8,000 followers.

Shortly after his death was announced, Skiibii had 30,000 followers on Instagram; that amount has grown to 38,000 followers presently.

Skiibii released the video to his latest single ‘Sampu’ today.

While there has been a noticeable increase in his Instagram followership, his new found fame has done little for his music.

The singer only has 558 views on his new video on YouTube after it was published early this morning.

On August 20, 2015 Skiibii wrote about his medical condition and denounced what happened on August 14 as a publicity stunt.

Also, the manager of 5 Star Music label, Soso Soberekon was fired for the backlash the label received over Skiibii’s false death.
