Yakubu Jibrin, the Nigerian singer better known as YQ, has recounted how he almost lost his life due to the action of an “aggressive” driver.


The America-based singer had earlier shared some pictures and a video of himself confined in a sick bed at a US hospital.

He had also appreciated God that an ambulance and the police showed up in less than 5 minutes to rescue him.

In a follow-up post late Wednesday, the singer explained what led to his confinement to the ambulance and how he was rendered incapacitated in the hospital after the car crash.


He also recounted how he was hit by the “aggressive” car owner who he said drove above the speed limit and caused him to go “unconscious for a while.”

He accompanied the post with photos of himself in fresh clothes but still restrained to the hospital bed.

“This aggressive driver drove way above the speed limit and hit my car from the back in a twinkle of an eye,” he wrote on his Instagram page.


“I hit my head and chest on the steering wheel, I was unconscious for a while, but thank God for the quick response by the paramedics.

“I’m on painkillers for some days. But am still here and hope to get back on my feet in a bit. Thank y’all for your concern and prayers. Am grateful.”
