Pelumi Nubi, the Nigerian travel content creator driving from London to Lagos, says she will continue the journey — despite surviving a car accident.


On Tuesday, Nubi revealed that she was involved in a car accident.

She also shared a picture of the now-wrecked car she had used for the trip.

The front part of the car was severely mangled while the windscreen had also been shattered.


She accompanied the post with the caption: “Say a prayer for me”.

In a post via her Instagram page on Wednesday, Nubi said she “miraculously survived” the accident.

She said she will be “taking things easy” for now and continue her trip when she regains her strength.


“God has really shown His mercy. Miraculously, I emerged unharmed from the accident – I survived,” she said.

“A big thank you for all your love, prayers, and good thoughts! It’s crystal clear to me that I have a family here online, rooting for me every step of the way.

“I am taking it easy for now, but I’m definitely going to keep going. The journey is far from over, and with renewed strength and your unwavering support, I will continue to move forward.”

Nubi was making the trip in a purple Peugeot 107. The vehicle was customised with features that enabled space for sleeping and dining.


It, however, remains unknown which country she was in at the time of the accident and what caused the crash.

In November, Nubi announced her intention to embark on a solo trip from London to Lagos.

She commenced the trip on January 30.

Pelumi had initially announced that she would arrive in Lagos on March 23.


However, she said the date had been changed due to border issues she was experiencing in some countries.

She recently disclosed that she was denied entry at the Sierra Leonian and Liberian borders.
