While people were taking in the new year and preparing themselves for what 2016 has in store for them, Fikile Mlomo had a near-death experience.

The songbird and gospel artist had a close shave with death while driving on the N2 to a funeral when she lost control of her Toyota Verso. The incident happened on Saturday morning.

Speaking to DRUM Magazine she said: “I was driving on the N2 from home, Enkandla to a funeral in Durban. I was disrupted by another car and tried to avoid it. The steering wheel locked and I lost control of the car. Before I knew it the car was spinning on the road, it then flew in the air then landed over a mountain before skidding back on to the road facing oncoming traffic. Fortunately we were not injured but we are exhausted and shocked by the whole experience.” She said she could not attend the funeral anymore because of the accident.

Fikile’s manager, Welcome Msweli said Fikile was rushed to hospital and released after an hour.  “She was rushed in an ambulance to Stanger Hospital where she was examined and released after an hour. Both Fikile and her friend have no injuries but the car is badly damaged,” said Welcome.

The Stanger Hospital Public Relations Manager, Slindile Mzila could not be reached for comment.
