Singer Kumi Guitar narrowly escaped a ghastly accident hours ago although we have scanty information about what truly happened.
The accident reportedly occurred on the Nsawam-Accra stretch of the road after his saloon car collided with a tipper truck.
The Zylofon signed act was unhurt but his car looked mangled. He thanked God for his life in a video he shared updating his fans on this unfortunate incident.
Kumi Guitar took to his Instagram page and shared the photos and videos and captioned it, “All I can say is Thank you Jehovah for my life. Am still alive🙏”.

The Highlife singer was in the news recently when admitted he’s not seeing any light at the end of his musical tunnel and sometimes, he contemplates quitting entirely.
The Brown Sugar crooner in an interview on Showbiz Xtra on Happy FM suggested that his present condition and that of other GH musicians is nothing to write home about.
Kumi said proper structures should be erected within the music industry so players can enjoy the fruit of their labour because as it stands now things look gloomy for him and other artistes considering how veteran artistes die as paupers despite their massive contributions and longevity.
“I fear for myself when I see the lives and living conditions of our old musicians. Some people say they didn’t live good and meaningful lives or refused to invest their monies but that is not right. If the systems are working, they can’t fall so low and be broke in their old age.”
According to him, the late Nana Ampadu would not have suffered such a painful ending if the systems worked. “Nana Ampadu was still working but let’s look at how things were for him. This makes me fear for myself.”
Kumi said, “Sometimes it gets hard and I ask myself if I should stop music or not. It gets hard sometimes. We have families and children we need to take care of.”
Per his calculation, over 98 percent of musicians are depressed and although “we are smiling, we are dying on the inside. We are not making it through music and the few you think are, are not making their money through music. People in the music industry are suffering, both producers and musicians alike.”
