Sabinus was involved in a ghastly auto crash but the skit maker says he’s unhurt and well.
A video of the singer standing by the roadside close to what is believed to be his vehicle surfaced online on Sunday.
As seen in the now-viral footage, the vehicle suffered significant damages, with its bonnet visibly crumpled.
A couple of police officers could also be seen surrounding the scene as pedestrians quickly gathered in shock.
Although information surrounding what transpired is still sketchy, it was said that another road user had rammed into the comedian’s vehicle while the latter was driving home from a personal function he had just attended.
In a monologue recorded after the crash, a disturbed Sabinus is seen reassuring fans of his physical safety.
“You know I don’t bring my things online. When I bought the car, I didn’t even post it. This is my first time having an accident. Another car suddenly entered my lane,” the comedian could be heard narrating in Pidgin English.

It was only in late July that it was reported that Sabinus had acquired a Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV for a fortune.
Sabinus, real name Chukwuemeka Ejekwu, started comedy in 2015 but began to see mainstream success in 2019.
He has featured in a number of Nollywood films, including the likes ‘Billionaire’s Bride’ and ‘Man of War’.
“Movie money is also big especially when you land a role in major films. I will still be doing my skits but I still want to hit big face,” Sabinus had told TheCable in mid-2021 while speaking in an interview about his career plan.
At the 2022 Africa Magic Viewers Choice Awards (AMVCA), he was named “Best Online Content Creator”.
Sabinus recently sued two beverage firms for trademark infringement, alleging they used his image and catchphrases to promote their products without his permission.
