Gospel Singer And Leader Of Wike’s Live Band Survives Fatal Auto Crash


Port Harcourt-based gospel artist, Sensational Bamidele, who also leads the live band that performs at the project commissioning ceremonies of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has survived a fatal auto crash in which three people are said to have died.

Bamidele, who hails from Okirika Local Government Area of Rivers State, was involved in the accident on the road that was commissioned by Governor Wike on Thursday, moments after performing at the ceremony.

He got involved in a head-on collision with an oncoming vehicle not long after leaving the venue of the commissioning in Rumuodogho 1 and Rumuodogho 2 communities in Emohua Local Government Area.

The singer, in a Facebook post, confirmed the deaths but did not give the casualty figure.

“May the souls of the departed rest in peace,” he wrote, indicating that the deceased were occupants of the vehicle that colluded with his, while he and his crew are alive.

Bamidele is said to be receiving treatment in the hospital.

The singer and his crew of young talented singers and instrumentalists are known for their freestyle on many of the songs they perform at the commissioning of projects and sometimes at PDP rallies, including the popular, “As e dey sweet us, e go dey pain them”, and “Wike dey come”.
