Dancehall recording artiste Kalado escaped serious injuries following a motor vehicle accident which took place along the Mandela Highway on Sunday morning, April 17.
The “Make Me Feel” deejay was reportedly on his way home to Kingston, after a scheduled performance in Westmoreland.
A representative for the ANG deejay told Hype life Magazine that Kalado and other persons traveling in the car are doing well but shaken up.
“Everyone is okay but are quite shaken given the amount of recent deaths by car accidents going on in Dancehall,” a rep explained.
Road Manager Everald Wright, who was also a passenger, recounted the ordeal to media reporters.
“Well we were coming from a show and the driver ended up falling asleep behind the wheel along the Mandela Highway,” he said.
Wright explained that the accident took place around 6:35 am, as the group was heading east towards Kingston.
The car reportedly drove towards the grassy area between the four-lane thoroughfare, slammed head-on into a wooden light post, breaking the structure in two, and then destroyed a road sign before coming to a screeching halt.
All passengers including the driver escaped unharmed, despite a few cuts and bruises, but the vehicle was totalled.
The accident caused a pile-up of traffic as Kalado and the other passengers counted their blessings while looking at the mangled vehicle.
Kalado is a member of the Bounty Killer founded collective Alliance Next Generation and the founder of G-Law Records. He is known for songs like Bring Life, Make Me Feel and Fing It Anywhere.
