Asiwaju is dead. At least according to Punch newspapers.
I personally thought it was another publicity stunt.
But before we all go into faux sympathy and fake caring mode, let’s remember we were the same people who asked him to drop his iPhone charger and kill himself after.

Mehnn, this place is toxic. I was exchanging DMs with the young man called Asiwaju, asking him to seek help and not do anything silly. Well, he killed himself. They call it “bants”, but he died. Twitter justice! Rape allegations and other criminal issues should not be made here.

Don't call people out for rape on social media we have courts for that. Get your lawyer. It's all bants till you are the victim or someone close.
RIP Asiwaju, may God be with your child.@thatgoddess____ if you lied about that issue, earth will judge you.

Twitter is calm now over the death of Asiwaju until the same hypocrites who cursed him, laughed at him, asked for his possessions before he dies and even wrote him a suicide note will wake up and start tweeting rip and sad emojis..Twitter is a murder zone. Keep your issues away
