So why did fans think that Holla was dead? Well, they confused Grandma Holla with another online content creator named Ms. Holla. Ms. Holla was the one who suffered from cancer and unfortunately died a few days back.
Ms. Holla’s granddaughter Meika had taken to her TikTok account recently to announce that she had passed away. Meika shared a video, which showed her family gathered beside a pond to scatter Ms. Holla’s ashes.
