One morning in 2015, the interwebs were awash with news that top Kenyan female emcee, Wangechi, who was in the company of her two best friends – Natalie Tewa and Tionna Wangechi – were involved in a grisly accident along James Gichuru road.
Tionna, God rest her soul, died in the crash while Tewa escaped with mini bruises and lived to tell the tale. Wangechi came out in the middle. She survived but had to spend months at Nairobi women’s hospital as she recuperated and also to go through therapy sessions.
The social media speculated that the trio weer drunk silly at the time of the crash. Wangechi who spoke to The Standard not long after the crash said she could not remember the happenings before the accident. She could not also confirm whether they had been speeding at the time.
A shell of the Toyota Mark X which they were travelling in at the time, tells a bit of the story. It was totalled following the fatal crash.
Months later, Wangechi surprised many with a full recovery, something no one thought she would do.
Wangechi who has since become one of Kenya’s most celebrated rappers, put up a post on her social media almost two years after cheating death by a whisker. The post on her Instagram page is what that has people talking.
“Live fast Die young Bad Girls do it Well…. #MIA #ayonasworld,” reads the caption to a photo of a cute Wangechi in a helmet.
The update came up after she invited her fans to an “ask Wangechi” session on social media.
She was responding to a question on what she had always wanted to be, Tuko reports. The female emcee has always dreamt of being a rally driver.
