DJ Black Coffee is the latest celebrity to become the victim of a death hoax.
The shocking report seems to have originated on a website called "On Da Mic" - which appears to be a satire news site.
It claimed that the DJ was found dead in a hotel room in Spain. A fan apparently confirmed the news on Facebook. How reliable!
There was no mention of how the award-winning DJ had died, only that he was found unconscious and rushed to hospital.
Many fans also shared a Facebook post about his death, and expressed their heartache over his "tragic passing".
But the website, which has published stories like "Mugabe slaps Zuma during verbal exchange at AU summit" and "Fikile Mbalula proposes to Amanda Cele", made the whole thing up.
The site clearly does not understand how satire news works.
Black Coffee encouraged his fans not to believe the lies.
