Social media "killed" Ringo Madlingozi a few days ago.
The multi award-winning singer trended after it was tweeted that he had died. However, Ringo doesn't find this funny at all.
The singer told The Citizen: "People can be so stupid. I may be a public figure, but I'm also human, I have a family that loves me. What if they had seen those rumours?"
He told the publication that he is in great shape, although he doesn't go to the gym every day. "But I take very good care of myself. I keep fit by running and dancing. I drink a lot of water and eat healthily most of the time."
