Zimdancehall chanter, Bounty Lisa, the estranged wife of another Zimdancehall chanter Soul Jah Love has dismissed reports which suggest that she is dead.
Social media was this week awash with reports of her death which suggested that she succumbed to an undisclosed ailment.
One Uncle Munhumutapa called the singer to verify the reports and she told him that it was a hoax adding that she was perfectly fine. Posting on Instagram following the interview, Uncle Munhumutapa said:
“A story circulating on social media about @bountylisa ‘s Death Is fake… She is Fine and is not suffering from Any Illness.”
Bounty Lisa is not the first popular Zimbabwean musicians to be proclaimed dead by social media. Others including her ex-husband, Soul Jah Love, Winky D, Killer T were previously declared dead only to resurface denying the reports.
Meanwhile, some believe some artists coin the rumours themselves to gain mileage or as a strategy to market their upcoming songs or albums.
