One of Nigeria’s veteran Hip Hop star and showbiz organizer Dr Fresh has been declared missing in showbiz actions in the past couple of years.
The flawless rapper and creator of the Wazobia vibes in Nigeria and across Africa was last heard of in 2017/2018.
In recent times the “Bless My Hustle ” crooner and lyrical juggernaut has not been seen at public events nor granting interviews in the mainstream media and social media platforms nor any live stage performances.
Even though in a private chat with the cool, calm and mature rapper in December 2017 after a show in Eko Hotel & Suites, he reaffirmed that his fans would be thrilled by his long-awaited fifth studio album tentatively titled, The Rebirth and the lined up shows including some radio and TV appearances to promote the much anticipated album in 2018 after the successful release of the smash hit single “Bless My Hustle ” from the yet to be released album.
However, rumor has it that the iconic rappertainer who featured 2Face Idibia in “Heavyweight Champion ” was a victim of a hit-and-run auto crash that’s left him in shock thus his sudden disappearance from the business that brought him fame and fortune.
But the story has not been confirmed by the rapper or his PA as all efforts to get a hold of them has proved abortive.
We have also had the opportunity to chat with some of his colleagues and the show promoters regarding the gigs he was billed to perform in 2018 but never showed up onstage. Disappointedly too, they also have no knowledge of his whereabouts. Noteworthy too, Dr Fresh unusual absence and silence without any press release from his media handlers throughout the previous year has even gotten some of his close colleagues like 2Baba Idibia worried.
Some of the top five names on the scene who begged for anonymity are of the divergent views that the rumored auto hit and run crash must have forced him off the social radar while some are of the opinion of whether something sinister happened to him.
But whatever is the case, his teeming fans, well-wishers and music promoters are missing his immense music talent and stage presence especially at this peak period of the year when artistes are suppose to be performing back-to-back and raking in good money from live shows.
The big question still remains, where is Dr Fresh ???
