The singer went on to recount another instance when he experienced a similar episode at Singer’s Kcee’s house.

Skiibii expressed his disdain for discussing the issue but acknowledged that it had taken a toll on his mental and emotional well-being. Despite going through a genuinely challenging period in his life, he found himself facing criticism from the public, with some accusing him of fabricating his own death to boost his popularity.

“People were bashing me, that was so crazy. Everywhere was on fire, people saying I faked my death to blow. I just stopped talking about it, let people think what they want,” Skiibii stated.

The singer also revealed that he sought medical treatment in the United States after the incident. Upon his release from the hospital, Skiibii was shocked to discover messages of condolence flooding his phone, with even Wizkid sharing his picture on social media. “I still remember Wizkid’s caption; he said all he wanted was to be happy.
