Who is Mona Kizz?
Mona Kizz, real name Karungi Monic, is a 24-year-old Ugandan influencer and model who has more than 1.4k followers on photo-sharing platform Instagram.
At the time of her alleged death, Mona had been living in Dubai since the beginning of 2022, according to her Instagram profile, and had been documenting her trip on social media. Most recently, the influencer was pictured at Barsha Heights and the Atana Hotel. She was last active on Instagram more than six days ago.
Karungi Monic is now in the headlines after a viral video surfaced online in which it is alleged a woman jumps out of the window of a luxury Dubai building.

Viral video surfaces online allegedly capturing influencer’s death
A now-viral video that appears to capture the moment a woman jumps to her death is making the rounds online, with some users convinced Mona Kizz is the figure in the clip.
“RIP Mona. You will be missed,” someone tweeted.
However, many others have called on people to stop spreading the video regardless of who the person is, demanding it should be taken down from all social media platforms.
“This is terrible and needs to be taken down,” someone wrote.
Mona Kizz video debunked in reports
At the time of writing, an official confirmation of Mona Kizz’s passing has yet to be announced.
One Instagram user speculated Kizz might not have been the woman in the viral video, claiming she had seen the same clip a year ago.
Media and news company Chroniques 225 referenced a Russian article that claimed the video wasn’t recent. Meanwhile, a 2021 article by DeadHouse links the video to an incident in Novosibirsk, Russia.
This information seems to point to the fact it is unlikely Mona Kizz is the woman in the clip.
We have purposefully not linked some of the above references as they lead to clips of the video.
