Nonetheless, others also claimed it could be a human who drowned and was moved by the ocean current to the shores. Examining the nature of the creature, it appears to be a human with a vitiligo condition. Vitiligo is a condition in which the skin loses its pigment cells(melanocytes). This can result in discolored pathes in different areas of the body. Others argued that, the saturated salt from the sea is what had preserved it's body from rotting and the constant washing and rubbing of the body against the sea bed had caused its skin to peel off. Others also claimed it was a sea god. When these photos surfaced on social media, many netizens passed their views. With that, some suggested it was the corpse of the Ghanaian singer 'Castro'.

Her fans asked if indeed Moesha’s hips were rotten or it was a tattoo or a hater who has intentionally edited the photos to tarnish her image. It is said that after an individual has successfully done his/her implant, they must frequent the hospital for check-up and failure to do so brings about the marks seen in the photos.      .
