What happened to Yasin Cengiz?
Cengiz has been the subject of some distressing misinformation that has left fans worried. Firstly, in early January 2023, rumours of the viral dancer’s death made the rounds These rumours began swirling around TikTok and spreading to other social platforms. On the heels of the news, tonnes of condolences began pouring in all over the social media sphere. Fans began sharing video reels of his content in his honour.
Despite the rumours circulating, Cengiz appeared unaffected and maintained his routine of sharing videos on his social media platforms. By doing so, he effectively dispelled the false claims and reaffirmed his presence and well-being.
His fresh uploads not only alleviated the concerns of his fans but also prompted many of them to express their delight in seeing him active and in good health on TikTok.
Unfortunately, the rumours resurfaced not long after, particularly following an earthquake in Turkey in February 2023. The false information persisted, causing confusion and concern among his supporters.
This time, Cengiz was said to have passed away from a sudden heart attack. These messages were conveyed in several TikTok videos, with some featuring the caption ” RIP YASIN CENGIZ”. A particular video with the aforementioned caption was shared in July 2023 and gained over 2 million likes.
However, an instant search on Google or TikTok would show that the news is untrue.
Surprisingly, even though Cengiz was faced with yet another unfortunate death hoax, he handled it similarly to the first instance by staying active on his social media platforms and posting new entertaining content without directly addressing the rumours.
As of the time of writing this piece, Cengiz is still very much alive and kicking. His most recent TikTik video was posted on August 20, 2023, and it features him in front of a restaurant, trying out several meals from the restaurant’s menu.
