Ebenezer Obey debunks death rumour


Fans of music icon, Ebenezer Obey, were despaired with apprehension on Saturday, July 4, 2020, as news broke on the Internet that he had passed away.

Frantic phone calls were being made and received all over the globe and many waited with bated breaths to hear from the family.

Many heaved sighs of relief as Baba Obey appeared in a video made by his son, Folarin, to assure his teeming fans that he was still very much around.

He said, “I give thanks to God Almighty. I am hale and hearty. There is nothing wrong with me. God is in control.”

In an interview with newsmen, Obey’s son, Tolu, who is also a singer, noted that his father still travelled from Abeokuta shortly before the rumour started spreading. He said, My Father is okay, nothing is wrong with him.

He is hale and hearty. He left Abeokuta for Lagos on Friday (July 3 , 2020).

Rumours of his death are callous and unfounded.

My father is enjoying himself in Christ. Those spreading the said news are probably looking for ways to attract people to their websites. We have nothing against them than to pray for them. But as for my father, he is fairing well. He is not even sick.”

Nicknamed ‘Chief Commander’, Obey has had a blissful career spanning five decades.

His songs which laced with life lessons and anecdotes are enjoyed by different generations of people, especially Yoruba.

His rich repertoire includes songs such as Inter-Reformers A Tunde, Eko Ile, Around the World , Iwa Ika Ko Pe, Joy of Salvation, What God Has Joined Together, Aimasiko, Ase Oluwa, Good News, I Am a Winner, Count Your Blessing and Igba Owuro Lawa.
