Upcoming Nigerian Rapper Olanrewaju Pelepele Commits Suicide In Ikorodu Lagos Over Career Failure

Family members of upcoming Nigerian rapper, Olanrewaju Pelepele have been thrown into mourning.

On Friday, September 20, Pelepele committed suicide by drinking ‘Sniper’, an insecticide, at his apartment in Ikorodu. His neighbours later found his lifeless body and contacted the police.

“So a close friend committed suicide this morning in Ikorodu, we’ve been waiting for @PoliceNG since morning to come for his body! Olanrewaju Pelepele RIP,” Debbie Mackanaki posted on Twitter.

The deceased has been posting series of emotional messages and video on the internet with the #mylastmoment to narrate his disgusts for this life. At exactly 10:46am, on September 11, the rapper explained that despite his 10 years of hard work in the music industry, he has failed to make it to the mainstream. According to him, this has made him sad. He then promised to commit suicide.

“Its 6days now, if by 12:00am tomorrow, God doesn’t take my life, I will kill myself,” Pelepele said in the viral video.

He continued;

“10 years ago, I told God to grant my fasting and prayer so that I can be successful as a musician. I told Him to take my life, if I didn’t blow after putting my energy. Here, I am today. God is just unjust and I’m not sorry to say,” he had written.

The Eshu crooner, further, said that depression is an understatement as he did feel like he belonged to this world anymore.

“I don’t feel any belonging to this world again because I feel tormented by life. Three years after my 10 years dead with God, Olamide saw the talents in me and signed me to his YBNL Nation record which is like a free ticket to success but everything just crashed. Why e go be me now, wetin I do from the beginning. I got depressed with everything and I don’t think there’s a reason for me to stay in this world.

“Tomorrow will make it 7days of #mylastmoment note and I have already gotten this (he showed a sniper) to kill myself. God bless you all,” he said.

Many people thought he was pulling a stunt until his lifeless body video surfaced online. He posted a picture where he was wearing a black shirt and face cap as he held his neck tight with his hands. He also did a free style to say goodbye to the world before taking his life.

    • Sorry for him, if ten years is not enough for your struggle for Music Industry while not try something else. We humans being take things into our hands knowing fully that God is very careful in whatever he’s doing , who know God plan for your tomorrow know body we should not judge God is very excellent in his way, WHAT CAN I WISH THIS MY BROTHER

  1. It’s sad to imagine that the dead dude posted his last moment 7 days online before he actually took his life.

    The Nigerian police failed big time, they should include people with suicidal thoughts and intents in their online watchlists not just Yahoo Yahoo boys.

    RIP, but God wasn’t unjust to you, 10 years is a long time but you should waited and tried more.

  2. Rest in peace,you shouldn’t have killed yourself ,there was hope but now you’ve lost it all.may God forgive you.

  3. I started doing music is 2012, i tired my best to make way, yet i didn’t succeed.
    But i didn’t blame God rather i blamed nature.
    Because of this i travelled to Ghana to continue my music career. I don’t wanna give God years to make me
    Succeed, but i know once there’s life there is hope.
    RIP

  4. GOD IS NOT YOUR SLAVE , HE HAD ALREADY GIVEN YOU THE POWER AND AUTHORITIES TO HELP YOURSELF .

    SO , IT WAS WRONG TO SAY ,, GOD HELP ME . GOD CAN NOT HELP YOU ONCE YOU ARE MADE AND PACKAGE YOU .

    ALL YOU PEOPLE SHOULD STOP SAYING ,, GOD HELP ME , BECAUSE ONCE YOU WERE BORN , IT MEANS YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN TO HELP YOURSELF ,

    FASTING AND PRAYING TO GOD CAN NOT HELP. BECAUSE HE HAS ALREADY GIVEN YOU POWER AND THE AUTHORITIES TO RUN WHEN YOU SEE TRAILER COMING TOWARDS YOU,

  5. after climbing so many hills, one always found out he has so many more to climb.

    rest in peace bro! we feel your pain, but suicide is not the best option, you must not be famous, you must learn to try your best and leave the rest for the master planner but now you choose to go all by yourself, it so sad, so so sad, but what more can we say! rest on.
