Popular Nigerian gospel singer, Buchi Atuonwu, popularly known as Buchi, has urged the public to disregard rumour making the rounds in the social media that he has passed on.
Buchi refuted the rumour in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Wednesday.
According to him, “There is no truth in this as I am sound, spirit, soul and body.
“It is unfortunate that desperation has driven many to all manner of mischief. Thank you all for your care and concern,” Buchi said.
NAN reports that the purported death of the award-winning gospel minister went viral on Wednesday on social media.
Buchi is a renowned Nigerian songwriter, author, poet, and reggae gospel artist. (NAN)
