Johannesburg - A kwaito artist sustained head injuries when his car smashed into a palm tree in Weltevreden Park, west of Johannesburg on Sunday morning, paramedics said.

ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak said the man, whom witnesses identified as Mandoza, real name Mduduzi Tshabalala, smashed his BMW Mini Cooper at 09:10.

"The man sustained head injuries when his car collided with a palm tree on JG Strydom road in Weltevreden Park. He was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital," Vermaak said.

    Heavens alive have you seen what that Mini looks like? This dude is a danger to himself & every road user. How much more damage must he cause before enough is enough. Take his Drivers Licence away immediately before its toooooo late!

    From the report he spend 7 hours in hospital (from approx 10:00 to 17:00). For a "minor scrape" to his head?! No me thinks he was emptying a rocket fuel drip. That's what the doctor would usually give people who are snotters drunk. And looking at photographs of the Mini, seems like he met the tree at a speed higher than what you are supposed to drive in a residential area... What a sterling example set to his fans.

    If Mandoza was not drunk why blaming him accidents do happen, you can have two or more accidents in 6 months.Find out what caused it before judging him.

    let me start by asserting my most sincere sympathy to mandoza & Donga Lamavuso family.lets not charge him he just an ordinary person and it could have happen to anyone.let the take its caurse before charging him.i`m not conderming what happen accident do happen and atleast this time nor one was hurt

    @Siyabulela - Do not feel any sympathy for this man. His criminal negligence that lead to the premature deaths of two innocent people has shown itself again. Paying two years of maintenance is a joke. Most likely less than R20k per month. He will kill again unless punished appropriately. Let's hope Jub Jub gets to "go climb the mountains" for the next few years to set an example to these irresponsible stars...
