Veteran Juju musician, Wale Thompson has recounted how divine intervention saved him from the jaws of death after a fatal auto accident in 2011.
The musician who is extremely popular with his hit single ‘Lalale Friday’ in a radio interview recently in Ibadan said he could remember was that he woke up in hospital bed during a road travel to an unknown destination.
Speaking in the popular radio programme, ‘Aye Kooto’ on Lagelu fm anchored by a veteran journalist, Mr. Yinka Agboola, who waxed emotional while fielding questions from his host said God still have many things in stock for him.
The accident, which occurred on March 18, 2011 took the lives of two fellow travelers in the same vehicle with him.
“On that day, we had a show in Ibadan and we were heading back to Lagos when we got involved in the mishap. You see, we were four in the vehicle and I was sitting in front with the driver and sleeping.
“All I knew was that I woke up in the hospital. I later went abroad for further treatment. It was God that said it was not my time. It was not my destiny to die at that time”.
The musician, whose ‘Lalele Friday’ single changed his total destiny in 1999 also took time to talk about his latest effort, ‘My Destiny’.
According to him, “My Destiny is one of my greatest productions. I took my time to put it together. God also said it is my destiny to come up with the musical production.
“Those who have listened have been thanking God on my behalf because all the inspiration came from above. The production has juju, afro beat and hip hop flavours.”
While addressing the youth, he said, “Our youth should always be patient and learn to wait for God’s time. They must also remember the son or child of whom they are at all times. There is no alternative to hard work, so, they must work hard and be prayerful. There is nothing as more rewarding as being called an ‘Omoluwabi’.”
This week’s episode of ‘Ayekooto on Radio with Olayinka Agboola’, a production from Parrot Xtra Media Network, was the first to be aired on Lagelu 96.7fm Ibadan.
