KanyiDaily had reported earlier that Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and eight others died in his private helicopter which crashed in Calabasas, California, US.
Reacting to the death of the basketball icon on his Instagram page, Mr Jollof said in Pidgin English:
“Basketball wey him dey play no kill am na wetin dem use their money buy based on lifestyle, everything na im don kill Kobe Bryant so.”
He added that he was sending a message to people who buy what might eventually kill them.
This grown man called Mr Jollof is a disgrace to himself and anyone who rates him!!! Just listen to the rubbish this one is saying. Very disgusting pic.twitter.com/9FZ21eMgEl

Mr Jollof is just ignorant and unexposed. Claims Kobe and Leicester city owner both bought what killed them – their lifestyle killed them.
I wonder how he gets to Lagos from Delta state. He made that video inside a car too.

Mr jollof said Kobe Bryant used money to buy what killed him. This is coming from an idiot that uses planes for trips n owns cars. Be like there’s a foolishness that comes with being verified

Mr Jollof is one of the most senseless individuals that has got the attention of everyone.
He likes being controversial to be noticed.
Using someone's death in clout chasing is totally unacceptable.
I told him all of this and he blocked me but I'm sure this won't be his last. pic.twitter.com/1WTz9p1U7T

Mr Jollof's comments about Kobe Bryant's death were incredibly distasteful. 30 seconds of absolute stupidity caught on camera and preserved for all time.

If you have sense, you should be very grateful to God.
This thing called common sense isn't as common as you think.
That said, Mr Jollof no get sense!

That ugly ass Mr Jollof just basically said he’s going to die in a road accident, since he purchased his car with his money. Dumb ass!

Mr Jollof is one nuisance that should never, mistakenly or deliberately, be given the faintest of attention. His words are neophytal at best
