Twitter influencer, Tunde a.k.a Tuneri, has allegedly committed suicide just one day after posting to the app about needing more money.
According to reports from his friends, Tunde took his own life one day after he posted "I need money like mad, Jesus" on March 9.
The following day reports of his death began doing rounds on social media with thousands of his Nigerian fan-base spreading the news that he committed suicide.
The incident has sparked his fans to reach out to his friends through Twitter to show support during this tragic time.
@orgasmdotng said: "In 2017 I almost took my own life, Tunde was one of the people that checked on me. 2021, he’s dead! Sigh! I wish he could’ve used the strength he gave me on that day."
@officialsolvibe said: "Most Nigerian male youths are Tunde on a low, Our fellow men rarely help and uplift us when we are in need, they only help women. whenever we ask for help the answer is always “Are you not a man?”. Men need to start standing up for men."
@MeetOlamide said: "Omo! RIP Tunde. People face a lot, to be honest, and sadly, we only get to know most of them when dead or maimed."

@AlvanJenkins said: "Men silently go thru hell or sometimes we just talk about it like it’s nothing. He just said he needed money like mad. Who’d thought he was gonna commit suicide after that? This is so so sad. RIP Tunde."
