Farouk Abrahams is not dead, Farouk Abrahamas is alive!
The Siya Crew spoke to a dumbfounded Abrahams after rumours circiulating in local media reported that he had died yesterday.
A bemused Abrahams told the Siya Crew, "A shoddy radio station reported that I had died and rumours spread like wildfire to other radio stations and media in South Africa," he said.
"Various members from the South African football fraternity called me and my family to verify the rumours. When I got to Chippa everyone was surprised to see me.
"I'm pleased to tell Soccer-Laduma that I am alive and well, and I'm confident that they will get the message out there."
Some reports claim that the blunder occurred due to a case of mistaken identity.
