A death-hoax is making the rounds once again, and once again, singer Shaggy is the victim.

The “Wasn’t Me” singer has been on the receiving end of the hoax a couple of times now but fans can rest assured that he’s still kickin’ despite an internet rumor that he was stabbed during a barfight. An update to Shaggy’s Wikipedia page caused a lot of confusion, however, as the prankster behind the hoax updated his bio to include his death date. The page has since been changed.

Fans and curious Twitter users took to the social media site to discuss, exclaim, and mourn the performer before word got out that it was all a hoax:
