Nigerian singer Yemi Alade has disclosed that she was involved in a car accident, but escaped with minor injuries.
She opened up about the accident via her Instagram page, expressing gratitude to God that thankfully, she had minor injuries. She noted that the car crash occurred along the lines of Barcelona and Benicassim in Spain, during her tour.
In the video posted to her page, the singer was first seen showing her broken nail, which was thankfully the only injury she received from the impact. Alade’s Iphone displayed an alert notifying her of the crash saying, ‘It looks like you’ve been in a crash’. She was also seen having her blood pressure taken by medical practitioners.
Alade detailed that the crash occurred on August 17, 2023, and unfortunately, that was not the only thing that went wrong that day. She revealed that she also experienced side effects from exhaustion, having performed just seven hours after the crash. In the video she posted, the performer complained about being unable to lift her arm, after which she was examined by paramedics again.
Her caption read, “On the 17th of August, we were in a car crash, somewhere between Barcelona and Benicassim in Spain at 12:06(noon). I also experienced a minor medical emergency from exhaustion after performing on stage 7 hours after the incident on the same day.”
Refusing to be brought down by the accident, the entertainer noted that she still had a great time at the after-party after her performance. She went on to express her profound gratitude to God for his protection.
In her words, “Somehow, I ended up at the “after party” (leave me o. my mind needed positive vibrations)Life is for the living… I didn’t want to put this out, but the devil had other plans, but my Jehovah jiray said NO! The blood of Jesus spoke for us. I only lost a nail, it all happened suddenly, Nothing is too sudden or complicated for God. His Grace is more than sufficient.”
Alade has since received overwhelming support and prayers from friends, loved ones, and fellow celebrities expressing concern over her wellbeing.
