Lil Wayne’s shooting declared a hoax

Police have confirmed a disturbing call they received on Wednesday (11.03.15) claiming four people had been shot from inside Lil Wayne’s Miami beach home was a hoax.


Emergency services surrounded the rapper’s $9.4 million property at midday after an unidentified man alleged he had shot four people inside the mansion and “required assistance.”

But it has now been established the phone call was a practical joke after officers entered the 10-bedroom home and inspected each room before giving it the all-clear and declaring it a sham.

Taking to his Twitter account, the 32-year-old musician tweeted: “Prank kall mane (sic).”

Fans were sent into a frenzy when the news broke as they feared Lil Wayne – whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr – was one of the alleged people injured in the fake shooting.

However, his record label Young Money, which was founded by him in 2005, soon reassured people by tweeting: “Wayne is okay. Wasn’t home during alleged events.”

Detectives are now trying to determine who made the phone call.

Meanwhile, on Saturday (07.03.15), reports emerged on social networking sites that the rapper had been killed in a shooting at a club in Charlotte, North Carolina, after he was pictured with Label Club with musician T.I. earlier that night.

However, it is not known whether he was at the hotspot at the time of the incident or if he was injured in the incident.

Police later confirmed two people had been rushed to hospital with non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

  1. During the Garissa attack, the terrorists told the students to come out of their rooms and descend to the ground floor. They were assured that if they did so, their lives would be spared. We all know how that went. Kenyans, especially the opposition need to understand that the al shabaab are under no obligation to keep their word. Demanding the immediate withdrawal under the pretext that al shabaab will stop their attacks is madness to say the very least.

  2. And this is why I opine that government needs to be ruthless to win the war of alshabaab terror. Time for talk is over, its cheap anyway. Its time to act. Pakistan reinstated capital punishment among other measures, the government of Kenya should do so with terrorist organizations. This is not a war where you take prisoners, we’ve all seen that in Garissa, Westgate, et al. Anyone ‘lucky’ to be arrested should be convicted and hanged or shot, as a deterrent to other like minded foot soldiers. That in spite of the sanctimonious lectures so common with civil society types and opposition politicians. Government should be ruthless in this war, that we can enjoy our safety and other liberties as Kenyans.

  3. I totally agree with the writer. The security of a nation should not be something we play politics with or gamble with. People need to forget about their political ambitions, donor funding, settling scores and take a stand to safeguard this country.

    What use are rights if we can’t enjoy them due to terrorism?
