“And as we get into a new year still blogs coming with cheap stories to attract numbers. So Sad. Just want to confirm to my fans, family and friends that am okay and this is a hoax. Thanking God for allowing us to see another year. Blessed 2017,” the veteran rapper posted.
Fake news websites have escalated with the spread of the internet, with many of them going to great lengths to get clicks from social media users.
In August last year, popular singer Jaguar also fell victim to malicious reporting after a less-known blog sensationally reported that he had passed on following a horrific road accident along the Nakuru-Nairobi highway.
Last year, Facebook reported that it was working on a feature that will block the spread of fake news on their platforms.
