Ugandan artist Bebe Cool is thanking his lucky stars after surviving a car accident that left his friend and fellow artist dead and others injured.

The 2 am incident took place in the suburb area of Kireka where the two artists had just shared the stage during a performance.

According to eye witnesses, the speeding car identified as a Toyota Harrier rammed into Bebe Cool’s hummer hitting Dizzy Nuts who was standing next to the passenger door where the two artists were having a conversation.

The impact of the accident left the deceased rolling into a ditch. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead minutes later.

According to Ugandan tabloids, a manager at Victoria club claims that the intention of the driver behind the hit and run was meant to kill Bebe who was seated inside his car.

Escaping with barely a scratch, the respected dancehall artist is yet to say a word about the shocking incident that took place over the weekend.

Celebrities in Uganda continue to send out their messages of condolences.

‘’RIP Dizzy Nuts. I appreciate that I was part of your musical journey. I will forever miss you. Sleep well Brother.’’ Artist Renah Nalumansi tweeted.

‘’Uganda has lost a great voice that can only be compared to Bounty killer and Bassy T of T.O.K. Rest in Peace, Soldier." Spark TV's Mr. Mosh posted.

Dizzy Nuts was thrown into the limelight after a collabo in 2008 with Bebe Cool titled ‘Fire Burn Dem’ was released. After a long hiatus, the two were said to be working on a gospel hit that was to be dropped soon.

Details of the slain driver are yet to emerge as investigations continue.

RIP Dizzy Nuts.
