Dixon is well and alive in Windhoek says his manager.
After a string of deaths in the past weeks, the internet has decided to kill a few more of our entertainers. Rumors of the death of singer Dixon spread on Facebook as rest in peace post was shared. The post that had been shared by more than 13 people at the time read
“3 weeks ago it was Phura and today it’s Dixon. Rest in peace,”
The /Namsaro singer responded to the hoax saying that people should be more sensitive with what they share as family, friends, and fans are affected by such utters.
“The rumor traveled. Relatives called but we assured them that he is in Windhoek and he is well. We don’t know where they got the information from but it is not fair to us. Just imagine the family finding out on Facebook,” said Dixon’s manager Danny.
Danny further cautioned people to be careful with what is put out on social media and only should believe information from reliable sources such as the media or the family. He also said people should not be quick to believe hoax and instead, they should listen and buy Dixon’s music.
“They are sleeping on the dude’s music yet they are following such lies. Maybe it is about time to give them new music,” said Danny.
Danny ended off by saying that Dixon will be releasing new music in due course.
Dixon responded to the allegations on his Facebook with a picture captioned:
#TEAMDIXON Guys please don’t run with everything you see on social media. I will be gone when God calls my name. Please don’t put my family through such an ordeal
In the past, celebrities including King Tee Dee and Big Ben have been victims of a death hoax.
