He told TshisaLIVE he was travelling back home after attending an event in his hometown Newcastle when he was involved in a head-on collision. A tipper truck struck his VW Polo 30km from his mother’s home.

“This experience has taught me to live life to the fullest, appreciate life, take care of my body, be grateful for those who love me and always tell them you love them because you don't know when the time is time.”

The kwaito star took to his Instagram in June while recuperating at home and said he was grateful for his fans' kindness and for wonderful people.  

“I want to take this moment to let you know how much you are appreciated. You are all true angels to me, and I'm more grateful to you than words can express,” he wrote.

He later shared that he was able to walk without the aid of crutches after recovering from the car accident.
