Following Five Star Music artiste's death hoax, the label has released an official statement explaining the singers condition and present situation.

The official statement released by the record label goes as follows:

"We the entire Five Star Music received with great shock the news of the demise of our artiste in the person of Abbey Toyyib Elias a.k.a Skiibii. The wide spread rumor of Skiibii being dead that shook the airwaves and social media platforms this morning is confirmed false.

"The 22 year old talented musician signed to Five Star Music is fine and alive. Given that he had a minor health issue this morning, He collapsed and was rushed by his brother & his friends to a nearby hospital from where he was taken to a more equipped hospital by the intervention of the CEO of Five Star Group for further treatment. Skiibii is currently recuperating at a private hospital, Please disregard negative information hitherto passed. Death is not something to play with. Kcee and Five Star Manager Soso Soberekon are currently in Europe on a tour.

On his suppose demise as confirmed by Five Star Music or the label's manager - At best, it was a miscommunication. The official social media accounts for future updates on every thing as regards the label, artistes and music are: @iam_KCEE, @iamMrSongz @Skiibii and@FiveStarMusicNG (on Instagram). Thank you for your concern and support."

Following the amount of speculation that has surrounded the death hoax, there are those who still have their doubts and have proof to back it up.

A photo Soso posted of Skiibii on his instagram page two weeks ago bears amazing similarities with the one released today of Skiibii collapsed on his living room floor.
