Former WBO junior-featherweight title winner Isaac Dogboe has assured fans he is not going to take his own life as he explains mystery tweet that got fans and family worried.
Dogboe, 26, tweeted on January 15, 2021: “I wait for the day I take my final breath and bid farewell to the world Folded hands… and I hope when that day comes you won’t be sad.”
The tweet geared fans to his Twitter page to offer him support while others called on his father Paul Dogboe to rescue the Ghanaian-British from any emotional trauma.
But, three days after the tweet Dogboe has explained that his tweet carried a more deeper meaning than the death fans associated with the tweet and assured fans he is not going to take his own life.
In the tweet Dogboe shared a video of himself happily dancing and assuring his friends and fans he is still emotionally tough and thanked all of them for their support and messages demonstrated in their collective concerns.
Below is the tweet.
Thank you all for your concerns..first and foremost I am not going to kill myself.
My tweet has a deeper meaning to it than it’s construed to be..Nonetheless, I’m grateful for the show of Love.
“THERE IS NOTHING THAT HEAVEN CANNOT HEAL
