A statement from Sonnie Badu’s outfit urged his fans to disregard such reports from persons he described as “unscrupulous bloggers.”
“The singer is alive and well in Australia where he is on a preaching assignment,” the statement added.
“News of the singer went viral on Sunday, 26th February, 2017, from his Instagram and management account entreating all to bear with him up in prayer as he had an emergency and was at the hospital.
After about two hours, his fans were updated that he was well and has been discharged from the hospital and this led to publications of his death,” the statement explained.
Below is the full statement:

Management is informing all that Sonnie Badu is not dead. He is alive and well. Sonnie and his management also wish to inform everybody that he will be in Ghana over the weekend for Ghana Praise 2017 so all should be ready for him.
