Gifty Osei and Joyce Blessing were on e.TV’s The Late Nite Celebrity Show to talk music and life as gospel musicians.

Gifty Osei reliving last October when a flight she was on landed due to an emergency broke down in tears saying;

“Sometimes it pains me a lot when unfortunate things happen to us celebrities and people jump into conclusion that we are looking for attention. It’s very painful when a serious issue happens and people think you are just seeking unnecessary hype.

“After that incident, I was paralyzed for one and half months.

I’m not exaggerating, I went blind for two days and no one knows what happened to me but the media made it look like the suit I wanted to pursue was for sheer hype. They didn’t know what I was going through then.”

Joyce Blessing who was also a guest on the show confirmed;

“I can testify that we met in Takoradi a few months after and when she spoke, you could hear and feel the trauma of the crash was still lingering in her.”

Gifty continued:

“I was coughing blood and couldn’t talk. But through all these things, I use it as testimony. I want to take this opportunity to thank my husband. He has been my pillar.” She concluded.
