The Family of Evangelist Ebenezer Obey has debunked rumours that the music legend has died, describing speculations over his death as “fake news.”
Reports say his eldest son, Lanre Obey, has confirmed that his father is ”alive and doing very well.”
Several news outlets (not The Next Edition) had reported on social media that the juju maestro turned-gospel singer had passed away in an undisclosed London hospital.

But Lanre debunked it saying it was a lie from the pit of hell and advised the general public to discountenance the rumour saying his father was alive and healthy.
He reportedly said: “My father is alive, I am even right in front of him and he is doing very well. We have been receiving calls from London and every other part of the world. The report of my father’s death is not true because myself and him are actually sitting next to each other as I am talking to you.”
