Seun Omogaji, a Lagos-based disc jockey better known as DJxgee, is dead.
Although yet to be verified by the police, DJxgee was said to have taken his life on Wednesday, January 2.
He reportedly drank an insecticide known as ‘Sniper’, owing to alleged marital issues with his wife.
Prior to his death, the disc jockey posted a farewell message on Instagram, urging people to mourn him wearing white, saying it is his favourite colour.
He had written: “Okay there is a twist to this last respect ppl give to their loved ones when gone.
“Black as signs of sadness ..but in my case please rock white cos I love this colour so much. To all have made smiled and to those I have pissed off trust me I’m only being human.”
