Matima Miller, the dancing TikTok star known as Swavy and Babyface.S, has reportedly died. He was 19.

The Delaware-based teen’s passing has not been officially confirmed by authorities, but local outlets are reporting that he was the unidentified 19-year-old man fatally shot Monday night in the the Southbridge neighborhood of Wilmington.

Police responded to an emergency call at about 10:42 a.m. Monday and found a young man with a gunshot wound. They didn’t say where the unidentified victim was shot but confirmed he was taken to the hospital, where he later died, Delaware Online reported.

YouTube star Damaury “Kid Mauri” Mikula, announced the alleged death of his “homeboy Swavy” in an emotional video posted Monday. “Yeah, my friend Swavy, man — he got shot,” Mikula revealed, wiping tears from his eyes with his red T-shirt. “All he did was make videos — vids, vids, vids, going up, up, up, up.”

Miller has over 2.3 million followers on TikTok, where his username was @babyface.s. — but fans knew him by his nickname Swavy. The teen regularly posted comedy skits and accumulated 97.4 million likes on the platform as of Tuesday morning. He boasts another 365,000 followers on Instagram as @oneway.swavy.

The Post has reached out to the performer’s various social platforms for confirmation and is waiting to hear back.

Meanwhile, friends of Miller — a viral sensation who has racked up nearly 100 million “likes” on the video streaming platform — have taken to social media to mourn the presumed death of the young star.

Appearing to struggle with what to say, YouTuber Mikula eventually said: “Seeing him get taken out. Don’t make me say this, bro. It don’t make no sense.”

Breaking down in tears, Mikula concluded: “I love you my n–ga. Dead ass, bro. I know you can’t hear in the real world right now but you’re up there looking down. I’m about to go hard for you, bro … You were so innocent.”
