Colombian singer Maluma is the latest victim of an Internet death hoax. To deny his death, the "Borro Cassette" singer took to Instagram to tell his fans, "I'm alive and happier than ever." 

"This is like the fifth time this month that they have killed me. I just landed in Bogotá, Colombia so I couldn't be happier. Don't believe anything, I'm alive."

The rumor hit the Internet yesterday (March 30) when a site called CNN Mundo announced the 22-year-old reggaetonero had died in a car accident after a concert in Zacatecas, Mexico. "We have Maluma for a long time God willing," wrote Maluma.
