R&B musician, Chemphe survived a near fatal accident Saturday when the car he was travelling in hit another vehicle that had stopped in the middle of the road.
The accident occurred at the Airport traffic light near the Airport Police Station in Accra after the artiste had left the studios of Joy FM and Hitz FM.
Chemphe who was with his manager, James Korsah Brown in his Ford car, told to Myjoyonline.com Monday they were on their way back from an interview on both Joy FM with Nii Ayi Tagoe and Hits FM with Bola Ray on Saturday.
“It happened at the Airport traffic light,” around 5pm, he added.
According to Chemphe, the car he ran into “was being driven by a lady who just stop in the middle of the highway … It was a sudden stop I couldn’t tell if she was a learner and got frightened by a trotro driver who crossed her.”
The Number One singer thanked God, his seat belt and air-bag for saving his life and that of his manager.
He said although his manager escaped unhurt, he got some cuts on his face. “Our wind screen was totally smashed and I got blown by the air bag and some particles of broken glass in my face.”
Chemphe, known in real life as Henry Agyekum, is currently receiving medical treatment from his personal physician.
