Ronald Alimpa along with Lady Grace, who sang “Layila”, and Ragga Fire got involved in a fatal car accident in Ssemuto, Nakaseke district, in the wee hours of Thursday morning.
Alimpa survived with a broken leg but reports coming through confirm that the grisly accident has so far claimed lives of four of his colleagues.
Experito Kamulegeya, popularly known as “Mazzi Ga Bbowa” has succumbed to injuries.
Kamulegeya is the original singer of the ‘Mazzi ga Bbowa’ that was redone by Alimpa.
The other deceased are; Lady Grace and Saidi Kabuye, a solo guitarist.
The artistes were apparently heading to Nakaseke district for a music gig when their car veered off the road and ended up in a swamp. Lady Grace died on spot.
The cause for the accident is still unknown.
UG artists who have survived car accidents
Our artistes love cruising in sleek rides. We have over the time witnessed them ship in expensive posh cars to suit their celebrity status.
Ragga Dee, Bobi Wine, Bebe Cool and Chameleone have inspired the current crop of young artists to also work harder and purchase the big toys.
As a result, Sheebah and Spice Diana are among the very few female musicians rubbing shoulders with men when it comes to rides. Sheebah drives a Volkswagen while Spice Diana cruises in Range Rover sport, convertible!
Most of the remaining artists drive ordinary cars but are not complaining anyway.
However, over the years, we have had many of these artists narrowly survive deadly car accidents, with the latest victim, Alimpa still fighting for his dear life.
Below, we name the lucky few who have escaped death by a whisker.
