Tributes have been pouring in on social media for Joseph Opuni after news broke of his death.

Joseph Opuni replied with “death” to a social media user’s question on what her followers wanted in life.

In June this year, the deceased also tweeted that “sometimes I feel like I’m fading away.”

“So I lost my best friend yesterday. I decided to watch my @Snapchat bitmojis story today to get a laugh And now I’m more hurt..because the story was on both of us…probably the last. This conversation is so us. Joseph, I remember when I told you how happy I was with you in my life and how you were the only person I could rant and exaggerate about anime characters with?” One of Joseph Opuni’s friends posted on social media.

Another Twitter user tweeted about how the late Joseph Opuni never opened up on the problems he was facing.

“All this feelings bottled up in you and you barely opened up” another Twitter user with the handle @thatboyMorsh tweeted.

His Twitter header photo also had the caption, “I’m the one who does the killing”.
