Afro singer Dan Lu is refuting allegations circulating on social media platforms that he was assaulted in Chilobwe and is using the incident to promote his upcoming new music featuring Nigerian star Flavour.
Dan Lu was involved in an accident on Monday when a school bus hit his car registration number BK 12 causing traffic to come to a stand still as the two parties waited on arrival of traffic police from Chilobwe station.
The accident took place at Malingamoyo leading to irate road users especially minibus operators to throw insults at the singer.
Pictures of Dan Lu standing on the side road seemingly making a phone call hit Whatsapp and Facebook with people falsely saying he was being beaten.
However, the Sweet Banana star came out through the same platforms to refute the unfounded accusations, assuring his fans that he is ok and asked them not to listen to everything they hear on social media as a return favour for all the times he has entertained them.
In an interview with Nyasa Times, Dan Lu explained what actually happened “i was going home from my Zigwangwa so at Malingamoyo there is a turn which drivers can not see who is coming on the other side. Now I was in my lane but this school bus driver just came to my side and hit my car”
“So we did not move and the road being small it got blocked. I confiscated the school bus keys and just stood on the side road waiting for the police from Chilobwe which is about 10 minutes”
“It is minibus operators who were hooting that they wanted to move but i did not do anything until the Police came, did their job and we went back to the station where I gave in my statement as well as the other driver.
” Apparently someone took a picture of me and started circulating that I was being beaten up. Ihad to get phone calls from my parents asking if i had been beaten up and was at the hospital.
“I do not know what is wrong with people but as a celebrity my life is in the public and it is something ive came to accept.”
Dan Lu further explained that he is a legitimate driver with a licence and knowledge of traffic rules regarding accidents.
“When an accident happens you dont move until the police comes unless the two parties agree there and then on issue of payment of damages, which in our case did not have with the other driver”
The celebrated singer has been in the media lime light with negative stories been purportedly smeared against him.
From the audio clips of a woman who was recording him when he went to do his fathely duties following up on where his kids were to the infamous pregnancy picture with his wife.
Several music journalists have been heard to say perhaps the singer is doing all these acts as publicity stunt to promote new music.
Certainly an accident is not a planned thing but the brilliantly Dan Lu has seized the moment to announce his biggest collaboration yet, a song with Nigerian Flavour.
Divulging the details to our reporter Dan Lu says the title for the song is 1+1.
“Everyone by now has to know that i am talented and my focus is on the big market, we are talking of Africa. My mind is very far beyond any one mind”
“So it’s true they can’t understand my mission until I reach my destination that is when they will realise iam doing this for my country and they will support me,” said Dan Lu.
