However, the singer downplayed previous allegations leveled against him that he had taken the victims to hospital only to abandon them. But according to him contrary to the said belief, he reached out and catered to all their needs.

“Two people had sustained minor injuries and were released on the same night after treatment while the rider of the boda boda Mr.Yassin Maina Richard had to be admitted to the hospital for further checkup,” he wrote.

“I have kept constant communication with Mr. Yassin’s family and to enable him resume earning a living for his family I have procured a new motorbike for him. While accidents are unavoidable, we must remain human. I would like to thank all those who called to check on me and continue praying for Mr. Yassin’s recovery,” he went on to say.
