UK-based Ghanaian gospel artist, Sonnie Badu, threatened bloggers who falsely claimed that he had died with a lawsuit. The false stories started to circulate after Sonnie’s team posted a picture of the singer in hospital in Australia, requesting that people begin to pray.
He gave bloggers 30 minutes to pull down so-called “confirmed” information, or else they would have a lawsuit filed against them, of which he would give all proceedings to orphans. The threats didn’t stop there; the multi award-winning singer went further to say that bloggers, who’d wished death upon him, would experience what they had typed “within three weeks”. These strong words were backed up with an equally strong image of Sonnie Badu, making sure that people knew that he was NOT playing!
“ALL BLOGGERS WITH FALSE INFORMATION CLAIMING THEY SPOKE TO SOMEONE FROM OUR CAMP AND STUPIDLY PUT ‘CONFIRMED!!’ HAVE 30MINS TO TAKE IT OFF THEIR SITE…..FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT TO A LAWSUIT FROM WHICH ALL PROCEEDS WILL BE GIVEN TO ORPHANS …..AND IF THAT IS YOUR WISH, WITHIN 3 WEEKS MAY YOU EXPERIENCE WHAT YOU TYPED…..OUR LAWYERS HAVE ALL YOUR WEBSITE IN PLACE.”
Sonnie returned to Instagram later to thank everyone who prayed for him. In a video he posted, he said that he is fine and promises fans that he’ll be back on the road.
So just to be clear: Sonnie Badu is ALIVE and definitely kicking. Well, thank God for that!
