Is a trending video on Omashola Oburoh, former Big Brother Naija Pepper Dem Gang housemate, some kind of macabre joke or a skit?
Is it reality?
The video said to have been shot in South Africa shows the reality star dishevelled, wearing a torn pant, his hair unkempt, sitting on a street pavement.
He has a black nylon bag by his side.
And it surfaced a day after he wrote on Instagram that he was near breaking point.
“They say in your youth, depression is mostly peer pressure and the strife to not want to be left behind. In old age, depression is a bucket full of regrets and it is worse than the former
“Thank God I’m still young but plenty pressure man dey face. I believe in myself normally based on who I be and it is me and my team till the wheels fall off but right now ehn, only God fit understand…. I’m lonely in a world surrounded by people. 😩
“Trying to keep my cool but slowly reaching my breaking point 💔”, he wrote.
Just some few days earlier, he urged his 1.1 million fans not to miss an episode on @dance_africa_dance.
The picture he posted along with it, showed him exuberant, wagging the V-sign with his fingers. And there is a beautiful babe, sitting next to him.
A day after, he posted a video of where he demonstrated some dance steps to justify why he was made a judge on @dance_africa_dance.
And then, bang, Omashola on the streets, like a madman.
“I just hope this is some sort of skit or movie @sholzy23 After seeing your last post, should I be worried? You haven’t been active on social media since your last post…call me!”, wrote fellow housemate Ike Onyema.

End of the Road As R. Kelly Bags 30 Years in Prison for Sex Offences
Embattled R&B singer, R. Kelly, was sentenced to 30 years in prison Wednesday for recruiting and trapping teenagers and women for sex.
Judge Ann Donnelly handed down the term in the Brooklyn federal court nearly a year after the 55-year-old Kelly was convicted by a New York jury.
“The verdict is in: R. Kelly has been sentenced to 30 years,” the US attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York said in a tweet.
The prosecutors had urged the court to put the “I Believe I Can Fly” artist behind bars for at least 25 years, saying he still “poses a serious danger to the public.”
In September, the fallen superstar was found guilty on all nine charges he faced, including the most serious of racketeering.
“His actions were brazen, manipulative, controlling and coercive. He has shown no remorse or respect for the law,” prosecutors wrote in their sentencing memo.
Kelly’s lawyers called for a lighter sentence with a maximum of approximately 17 years.
The sentence comes just over a month before jury selection is due to start in Kelly’s separate, long-delayed federal trial in Chicago on August 15.
In that case, Kelly and two of his former associates are alleged to have rigged the singer’s 2008 pornography trial and hid years of sexual abuse of minors.
The musician who once dominated R&B also faces prosecution in two other state jurisdictions.
Brand War: Portable Accuses Burna Boy of Copying His Style
Habeeb Okikiola, popularly known as Portable, has called out colleague, Damini Ogulu, better known as Burna Boy, for allegedly copying his mannerisms and style.
The Zazu singer took to his Instagram page on Wednesday where he posted a clip of Burna Boy saying, “akoi grace, akoi mercy, akoi blessing, akoi space, akoi biza biza. Blessing follow you.”
According to Okikiola, the phrases are part of his mannerisms and have become synonymous with his brand.
He also referenced a tweet where Burna Boy posted a picture of Portable and captioned it, “Deep down I really want this to be my album cover. Love, Damini.”
Portable further asked the Grammy award winner to collaborate with him, instead of using him for “promotion”.
“Uncle Burna abeg, shey you wan help me ni or you wan rip me. I use God beg you, shey make we sing ni abi you just dey use me do promotion. Na so you use my picture promote your album. Now you come dey sing akoi grace, akoi mercy, blessing follow me.
“Abeg, make we make song abeg. No ripping o, uncle Burna make we collabo. No rip me,” he said in a video also posted via his Instagram page on Wednesday.
