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.
