A man has died following a fatal accident on Saturday that involved Tanzanian artist, Chino Kidd and his music group.
Chino Kidd who prefers to sing Amapiano and several colleagues were heading to Tanga region, Tanzania for a show when the black Alphard car they were riding collided with a petrol truck.
The accident is reported to have happened in the Kabuku area on Saturday afternoon where several victims are reported to have suffered serious injuries.
"We were heading to Tanga for our mother Ummy Mwalimu's show, by accident we got to the Kabuku area, we left with two cars, the car the artist was riding in was ahead and the artist was sitting on the left side of the driver," Chino Kidd's manager, Sweder told Tanzania Web.
The manager said the victims managed to get immediate help after the accident and the injured were rushed to the Tanga referral hospital. He said that everyone in the car was injured but no one died on the spot.
Unfortunately, the driver of the black Alphard that was carrying artist Chino Kidd, known as Nabeel, has been reported dead.
Tanzanian music producer Abbah Process confirmed the death of Nabeel on Sunday morning while mourning him.
"Rest in peace brother, we have lost a family member who was in the accident yesterday (Saturday). May God embrace him in his loving arms and grant him eternal peace. Forever in our hearts,” Abbah Process wrote on his Instagram account.
Other victims are reported to have broken legs following the accident while Chino Kidd is said to have suffered more chest injuries.
The video shared by producer Abbah shows people gathered around the black Alphard that was carrying Chino and his colleagues.
The car appears to have been hit badly, especially on the right side. A petrol truck that was also involved in the accident was seen on the other side of the road with its head down.
Chino Kidd is one of the artists signed under the Bad Nation music label owned by Marioo.
