Nigerian Rapper Da Grin was involved in a pretty serious car accident on Wednesday and has since been hospitalized at Lagos University Teaching Hospital.
From all indication, he seems to be a pretty stable condition after surgery to stitch some cuts received on his head. Accounts indicate that the wreck was caused by a cement delivery truck that collided with Da Grin’s vehicle head on. They are still investigating whether the truck driver has a valid heavy vehicle licence.
The incident took place in front of Alakara Police Station in Mushin, Lagos at about 2am on Wednesday morning.
He was immediately rushed to Tai Solarin Hospital in Mushin, but was later transferred to LUTH and remained unconscious in the intensive care unit (ICU) till early Thursday evening.
He currently is described as being in stable condition. Please pray for his speedy recovery and return back to his normal activities.
