Nigerians can now heave a slight sigh of relief. It would appear that all is well with Terry G and his House of Ginjah label mates, despite the accident that left his car a wreck at 3am this morning in Ogba, Ikeja.
Below is a message from Terry G’s manager just now circulated to members of the media updating the public on the singer’s situation.
“My people, no shaking at all!” The message reads. “This is to confirm that Terry G and some members of House of Ginjah actually had an accident in the early hours of today and to also confirm that they are all very ok now. We thank God for mercies. We will keep you all updated. Thanks for the love. Ayo”
Also, his PA, simply known as Uche, whose phone has been unavailable all day finally spoke with us and confirmed the incident. Sounding confused and almost at the point of tears, he stated that the singer is alive and well but is in a “critical condition”, although he would not disclose what hospital he has been admitted to.
Already, many have begun to draw analogies with the accident of rapper Da Grin, with entertainment entrepreneur and comedian Tee-A saying on Twitter, “Whatever happens, they must not take terry G to LUTH o!” It will be recalled that the late rapper was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital upon his accident also in the early hours of the morning and he passed away.
However, we can take a little comfort in the words of his manager: “They are all very ok now.”
#More details as they emerge.
