Zubby Michael is alive and not dead as some of his fans and bloggers presumed. Nothing has happened to the actor, whose full name is Azubuike Michael Egwu. He is active and healthy and goes about his everyday life.

In 2021, Zubby was involved in a ghastly motor accident but he was not harmed.

Also, the rumor of his death arose when he posted the advert for a movie that has his name Zubby Michael’s Death. Most of his fans concluded that the actor is dead because his name was used in the poster. However, the poster was for a movie and not a real-life incident.

Zubby Michael has Stoked Death Rumors with his Controversial Movie Title

Zubby Michael is not late. Any rumor to the contrary is due to several reasons and one of them is a recent movie project. Zubby Michael is a versatile actor and his jovial nature led him to accept to title a movie after his death. He used his real name for the movie title which is rare to find in the movie industry. This is also one of the reasons why his fans concluded that he was dead when they saw the movie poster.
