Steve Hofmeyer taken to hospital after car accident


It’s been a busy weekend for Steve Hofmeyr.

On Saturday alone the controversial Afrikaans singer distributed gifts to needy children in Benoni, Gauteng; attended a good friend’s stork tea; and was there when his two favourite rugby teams faced off against each other in the Curry Cup. Oh, and in-between he made a quick detour to the hospital.

An anonymous source spoke to YOU exclusively, telling us that Steve was late for his friend Pieter’s Smith’s wife’s stork tea because he’d been involved in a small car accident.

“He had to get x-rays at a hospital in Benoni after someone ran into his sponsored vehicle,” the source says.

The source didn’t witness the accident.

“I didn’t even know Steve would be at the stork tea, but everyone who sings was there,” the source adds.

Pieter and his wife, Yolandi, are expecting a baby girl early in the New Year.

The venue in Pretoria where the stork tea was held, Woes Lekker, shared a pic on their Facebook page of Steve attending the event.

Steven didn’t say anything on Facebook about the accident. Liza Mulder, who organises the singer’s schedule, couldn’t reach him on Monday morning to confirm whether there had been an accident.

One thing Steve did do on social media was to lament his beloved Blue Bulls’ 36-16 loss on Saturday against the Cheetahs.

“I can laugh again this morning. No, the ref was OK. I just have the endless blues. The Blue Bulls blues. But well done to the Cheetahs – that must be said. You ran holes through us. Raymond (Rhule) and Sergeal (Petersen) were fiery. I believe Bloem was an all-night festival. Here in Pretoria we went home early, tails between our legs,” Steve wrote on his Facebook page yesterday.
