In the fast-paced world of social media trends, Pakistani actress Meera, often referred to as Meera Jee, has always been a magnet for controversy. Throughout her career, she has seemingly mastered the art of staying in the spotlight, leaving many to wonder if it’s all just a clever concoction.
Bold, beautiful, and outspoken, Meera consistently finds herself at the center of discussions on various social platforms. Her journey has marked by headline-grabbing scandals, including a highly publicized divorce and a feud with a fellow Pakistani actress, not to mention other undisclosed incidents that remain shrouded in mystery. Some argue that her notoriety is simply a result of her English communication skills or random acts of kindness, while others dismiss it all as mere publicity stunts.
However, today’s trend surrounding Meera Jee took an unexpected turn, sparking concern among nearly everyone who encountered it.
Users of the popular Pakistani platform ‘X’ left in shock when they discovered the hashtag ‘#RIPMeera’ prominently trending in the rightmost column. Thousands of tweets posted under this hashtag, causing it to rise above even the trending topic of ‘#ShaheenShahAfridi.’ It was, after all, related to the beloved Meera Jee, and users instantly assumed the worst – had the iconic Pakistani actress passed away? Their collective sigh of relief came swiftly when they realized that this hashtag served a different purpose altogether.
So, what was the real story behind the #RIPMeera trend?
Pakistani users were quick to uncover the truth behind the trend. Contrary to their initial fears, it had nothing to do with the Pakistani actress Meera or Meera Jee. Instead, it revolved around the late Nigerian singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, better known as Mohbad.
Across three Nigerian states, today’s youth came together to stage protests, demanding justice for Mohbad, who tragically passed away the previous Tuesday and laid to rest on Wednesday. His untimely demise raised concerns, with some accusing Marlian Records owner and singer Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, of being somehow involved in his death.
