Ugandan artistes have suffered with road accidents. At least each year, one of them is involved in a car accident.

While David Lutalo survived an accident on Wednesday, May 4, on his way back to his home in Bunamwaya in Wakiso district, Renah Nalumansi cheated death on the Northern Bypass on Thursday, May 5. 

Lutalo was in a Toyota Harrier when a heavily loaded trailer failed to ascend a hill.

His car, which was behind the trailer, was badly damaged and taken to Bunamwaya Police Station.

The singer has demanded that his car is repaired by the trailer driver.

Meanwhile, Renah’s car was knocked from behind by a lorry. She lost control and hit the road barriers, hence destroying her car.

The former Dream Galz vocalist expressed gratitude to God for allowing him to live another day.

“I wasn’t sure I’d be able to take another breath.” “Thank you, God, for giving me yet another chance to live and sing for my people,” she wrote on Facebook.

Several Ugandan musicians would not be among us today if they had not survived near-fatal tragedies.

In 2017, Bebe Cool survived a near-fatal tragedy in Kireka, Wakiso region, when a Toyota Harrier slammed into his Hummer, killing fellow artist Dizzy Nuts.

Kenzo also escaped a collision on Masaka Road in Maya in August 2021.

Vampino, Ykee Benda, Pallaso, Tuff B, Jose Chameleone, Bobi Wine, and Kato Lubwama have all experienced similar experiences.

Several others did not make it out alive.

Herman Basudde of Kadongo Kamu died in a car accident on Masaka Road in 1997; Denis Rackla died in 2017 while traveling from Kayunga; Menton Summer (who performed Sirikawo Baby with Emperor Orlando) died in 1997 in Iganga from Mbale; and Patience Najjuma of Golden Band died in Luwero.
