HIGHLIFE Musician, K.K Fosu, narrowly escaped death on the Accra-Tema Motorway after he was involved in a freak accident on Saturday, January 12.   

The accident happened near the Abattoir Junction on the Accra section of the Motorway around 7:00 am.

In what looked like a serious accident, the Anadwo Yede singer did not sustain any physical injuries, but a passenger had a minor cut on the forehead.

K.K. Fosu was taken to the Tema General Hospital in a taxi by an acquaintance whose name was only given as Kwesi who was phoned by some witnesses.

Kwesi's number was said to be the last number the musician dialed before the accident.

In a brief interview with Showbiz at the Accident and Emergency Centre of the Tema General Hospital, K.K. Fosu, said he was en route to Happy FM in Accra and on reaching the Abattoir end of the motorway, a herd of cows suddenly crossed the road. 

He said he momentarily lost control of the steering but managed to regain control of the vehicle which had its windscreen badly damaged.

K.K. Fosu said he hit his chest against the steering wheel and had some sharp pains in his chest. He said but for the seat belt, he would have sustained severe injuries.

He bemoaned the practice where animals are allowed to roam freely on major highways and said "these are some of the things musicians should be singing about."

K.K Fosu was temporarily discharged at about 10:am after an examination by the doctor on duty and asked to go and do an X-ray.
