Online detectives think they have found Rapper DIDE's true identity

Online detectives think they have found Rapper DIDE's true identity

DIDE has been attracting headlines ever since he dropped his debut track and claimed he was a Premier League footballer.

British rapper DIDE has been in and amongst the news following the release of his debut track, 'Thrill', while also claiming that he is a Premier League footballer.

The song has amassed over 870,000 views on YouTube so far, with several football fans being sent into a frenzy to find out who the masked rapper really is.

Names that have been mentioned so far include Eddie Nketiah, as the name Dide is an anagram of Eddi, with some suggesting it could be Wilfried Zaha or recent Chelsea signing Noni Madueke as the music video is based in London.

Some have also suggested that it is likely to be a Gunners player because of lyrics such as "my team stay winning" and "every game is like a final" - referring to their title race with Manchester City.

Betting sites even released their odds for who the rapper is likely to be, with Nketiah leading the race at 1/3, Alex Iwobi is in second with 4/1, Bukayo Saka at 7/1 and Ashley Young next at 12/1.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is also on the list at 100/1, but since these odds have been released, it seems like some online detectives have found the true identity of DIDE.

It is none other than ex-Liverpool wonderkid, Sheyi Ojo.

Sheyi Ojo (right) is thought to be the footballer behind the mask of DIDE. (

That is, if the internet is to be believed.

Eagle-eyed fans have noticed a tattoo on his arm, as well as his hair coming out of his mask, which both seem to match Ojo, as he has the same diamond tattoo on his arm.

If this is true, then DIDE isn't a Premier League footballer at all, as Sheyi Ojo currently plys his trade in the Championship with Cardiff City.

Despite DIDE stating that he was 23 in his song, Ojo is actually 25-years-old - but he is from Hemel Hempstead, a town that is part the Greater London Urban area.

Ojo actually permanently left Liverpool in the summer of 2022, making a total of 13 appearances for the first-team over three seasons.

The tricky winger has only managed one league goal this season at Cardiff, but has managed to make bigger waves in the hip-hop world if these rumours are true.
