In an exclusive interview with Citizen Digital the Me and My House singer revealed that he walked out if his wrecked car without any serious injuries, just a scratch on his leg.
“When I got out of the car, there was a motor cycle standing next to it. I went and stood next to the driver and began examining my car. I could not imagine that I was able to get out alive,” said a grateful Eko Dydda.
That he walked out unharmed came not only as a surprise to him, but to those who witnessed the crash: “Bystanders could also not imagine that not only did I come out alive, but I did not sustain major injuries.”
