Dancehall artist Munga was involved in a car accident along the Mandela Highway this morning. According to reports a Canadian woman died on the scene.
After having legal woes in 2017 and 2018, when he battled murder charges for shooting a mad man who had shot him, Munga recently gained traction with his hit song “Nah Mad Ova No Gyal”. He was featured on TVJ’s entertainment report last night.
Reports from the police’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) are that Munga, whose given name is Damian Rhoden, was driving a Corolla Axio motor car in the vicinity of Ferry about 5:50 am when his vehicle crashed into a Suzuki Vitara.
Police say the Vitara then crashed into a Hiace bus in which the Canadian woman, identified as 26-year-old Tashana Cumbermack, was travelling.
Munga and a male passenger in the Corolla were admitted to hospital.
