Ukhozi FM DJ Chilli M is mourning the death of his one-year-old daughter Nkanyezi who died in a car accident last week.

Speaking to Daily Sun, Chilli M said the accident happened when the family was returning home from a holiday.

The accident happened near Hartbeespoort Dam where Nkanyezi died in his arms in the car his wife and two children were travelling.

“My wife and I were travelling in separate cars. Nkanyezi and my son were with their mum when the driver lost control of the car while swerving to avoid crashing into another vehicle. When the car stopped, Nkanyezi was thrown out and landed on the pavement. When I picked her up she was severely injured and died in my arms,” he told the publication.

Chilli M told Daily Sun that his daughter will be buried over the weekend although the pain of losing Nkanyezi is still unbearble .

“My wife and son were also seriously injured – my son didn’t write his final exams. I can’t explain the way I feel. What happened to me is something I would never wish on my worst enemy.”

“It’s terrible to watch as your child dies,” he said.

The DJ appealed to his listeners to be patient with him while he is still recovering after the death of his daughter. He also thanked everyone who was there for him in his hardship.
