  • Share


Sourav Ganguly's Tweet about him "planning to start something" triggered rumours that Ganguly is going to quit as the President of BCCI. In a clarifying statement, Jay Shah put an end to such rumours.

A video of a man falling through the stage in a concert went viral on social media. Posts made the claim that this was the video of the grand opening at a recent Coke Studio Concert.

A post by Sakib Hasan from June 10 claiming the same had more than 100k views and over 1.8k shares.

The video was widely shared on Facebook.

Fact Check

In an image reverse search of keyframes of the video, a relevant article in Portuguese by Globo's digital platform G1 was found. Globo is a part of the Grupo Globo conglomerate, the largest media and communications conglomerate in Brazil and Latin America. The article, dated July 16, 2018, states that a Brazilian artist named DJ Kevin suffered an accident during a concert as the wooden floor of the stage gave way, causing him to fall down a hole. The concert took place in the Cajuru municipality of Sao Paolo, Brazil. The concert was cancelled after the accident.

The article featured screengrabs from the viral video and a social media statement by DJ Kevin.

We also found a fact-check article from June 2, 2022, on the Portuguese fact-checking website

According to this article, the video had previously gone viral with the claim that the man seen in the video was the Portuguese sports commentator Bruno de Carvalho, former president of the Portuguese football club Sporting CP.

In conclusion, the viral video is not from the opening of a recent Coke Studio concert as is being claimed by social media users. The scene is of an accident that the Brazilian artist DJ Kevin suffered during a concert in 2018.
