I thank god for being alive’
It’s certainly not a joyous moment for female juju musician and Vice Chairman, Association of Juju Musicians of Nigeria (AJUMN), Seun Aransiola. And the reason is obvious.
WA016ENCOMIUM Weekly was informed by an industry source that the brilliant entertainer was involved in a terrible auto crash on Saturday, February 6, 2016. And the incident, the source said, eventually landed the Omu Aran, Kwara born singer in the orthopedic department of Railway Federal Hospitality, Ebute Meta, Lagos, as she was said to have suffered serious neck injury.
The source further disclosed that the accident occurred at around 8 o’clock in the morning along Ikorodu Road, Lagos. And Aransiola’s Nissan Pathfinder, we were told, got damaged beyond repair.
“Seun Aransiola is not happy at the moment. I learnt she had an accident with her Nissan Pathfinder on Saturday, February 6, 2016, along Ikorodu Road, Lagos, while returning from a show. I learnt she was trying to avoid crushing an okada man who ran across her vehicle. And in the process, she suddenly applied brake and the jeep somersaulted to the other side of the road.
“I learnt she was rescued by some good Samaritans who quickly rushed her to a nearby hospital where she later regained consciousness. But when the hospital couldn’t handle her case, she was referred to Railway Federal Hospital, Ebute Meta, Lagos, where it was discovered she had a severe neck injury. I also learnt her jeep was a write-off. But in all, I am happy for her that she’s still alive. I believe when there is life, there is hope. She can acquire another car any time but life is irreplaceable.”
Speaking with ENCOMIUM Weekly on Friday, February 12, 2016, the talented lady guitarist expressed gratitude to God for sparing her life. She was, however, optimistic that her damaged jeep will be replaced soon.
“The experience is not funny at all. No one will pray having an accident let alone being hospitalized. But I give thanks to God for saving me. I bless Almighty God that I came out alive. Although, my jeep crashed beyond repair, that can be replaced and it will surely be in as much God is on His throne. I survived the accident miraculously with slight injury on my neck. What’s important is that I am alive. I must be grateful to God for that. A lot of people whose cases were not as bad as mine had gone to the great beyond. So, I owe my God a lot of thanks.
