Premium Times can authoritatively confirm that the story being circulated about the death of Musician TuFace Idibia is untrue.
A website, Global Associated News, had early this morning published a story with the headline “Musician – Tuface Idibia dies following Jet-Ski crash in Turks and Caicos Islands.”
The story soon went viral on social networks leaving several of the musician’s fans heartbroken.
But we can confirm that the report is a complete fabrication.
The website said this as much of itself.
It stated clearly on its footer, “This story is 100% Fake. This is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purporses.
“This story was dynamically generated using a generic template and is not factual.
“Any reference to specific individuals has been 100% fabricated by website visitors who have created fake stories by entering a name into a blank non-specific template for the purpose of entertainment.”
Many readers didn’t see this and only went on redistributing the story link after reading it.
