Gospel singer Mr Seed has opened up on suffering brain shrinkage after being involved in a grisly road accident back in April.
Speaking during an interview with SPM Buzz, the Kumbe Kumbe crooner explained that he hit his head on the vehicle due to the impact and suffered brain shrinkage. In his explanation, this has caused him to zone out on several occasions without realizing it.
“Yes I go for therapy for my mental health and everything and there’s also this other thing… When it happened, I hit my head on the car as a result of the impact when we were hit. So when I went for a CT scan I was told my brain shrank. The explanation is that it was shaken and as a result it shrunk. Because of that there are moments I just sat and zoned out. I could be focusing on something, someone might think there is something important I’m staring at but I’m blank for like 5 minutes and then I come back to my senses,” he explained.
The award winning singer went on to admit that he stayed indoors for months due to the trauma of the accident explaining that he feared being outside.
“Also just remembering the whole thing, the trauma… I don’t think I’ll get over it any time soon but at least I built a little courage. You know I was in the house for almost three months. I only left to do appearances but go back immediately because I was scared. But now I can say I’m at least. I’m even on set ready for a music video shoot, it’s been a minute,” he added.
The accident that occurred on Saturday of April 29, left the Only One crooner with a fractured pelvis and claimed the life of his photographer, Ambrose Khan.
According to his wife Nimo, they were on their way to view land in Nanyuki when the unfortunate incident took place.
“The car they were in got into a bad accident we were slightly behind them when we saw a crowd surrounding the scene," she posted on her Instagram stories. “I don't know whether to be happy that some friends survived coz I can't stop crying because others lost their lives too.”

“I just remember running and seeing them on the ground and begging him to wake up. Some good Samaritans helped and we took him to hospital,” she wrote.
For Mr Seed, recovery has not been a walk in the park and he thanks his wife Nimo for being by his side through it all.
“There’s nothing I haven’t told her. I always appreciate her. Thank you so much for holding me down even during my depression. I was actually depressed throughout that month because I felt like I was a useless person in society because you are doing nothing, you are just sleeping. So I appreciate you and I love you so much. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I don’t want to bring the romance things but I just want to say that I am so humbled and just say thank you even for being in my life. If I didn’t have anyone in my life I don’t know where I’d be,” he said.
