“This is very disheartening” — Tony Umez debunks rumours of his death
Renowned Nollywood actor, Tony Umez, has refuted the rumors about his demise that have been circulating on various social media platforms. This comes just a week after he celebrated his 59th birthday.
Taking to Instagram, the veteran actor expressed the distress these false reports have brought to his family and close friends. Tony Umez firmly stated that these unfounded rumors were propagated by individuals on social media seeking to boost traffic to their profiles.
He, however, urged his followers to stick to information released by his family or management to avoid giving unnecessary attention to rumor-mongers.
“Good day, my lovely people.
I need to address this disturbing issue that has come to my attention. There are some unscrupulous individuals who have been using my pictures and videos maliciously, falsely reporting me as deceased in order to gain traffic to their pages.
First and foremost, I want to assure you that I am very much alive and well. These false reports are nothing but baseless rumors spread by individuals with ill intentions. I will be taking legal action against these persons, as their actions not only infringe upon my rights but also cause unnecessary distress to my loved ones and fans.
I understand the power of social media and the impact it can have on spreading information. However, it is disheartening to see how it can be misused by a few to spread false news for personal gain. I urge you all to be vigilant and only trust information that comes directly from me or my official channels.
Love you all loads 💓💓💓.”
