According to what veteran media and communication consultant and disk jockey Bush Baby said in a video that made its way on social media earlier on Friday, he was recently involved in a near-fatal accident which left him with a fractured left hip.
He has since then been consulting medical experts who have now confirmed to him that besides the fractured hip, the accident also injured his vital internal organs and with this, he is currently not functioning normally.
In the video, ailing Bush who is seen walking with the help of crutches is asking concerned people to stand with him in raising Ug Shs 15 million which is required for an operation he is expected to undergo in July or August this year.
“I recently went through a near fatal accident that left me with a fractured left hip. Of course overtime I have been consulting with medical experts who have now confirmed to me that I actually injured some vital internal organs that are not enabling me to function as normal. This is a very noble humble appeal for you to come through and support me financially with whatever you can. It’s quite a costly procedure, we are targeting at raising 15 million shillings to have this process. If you feel compelled, touched right from the bottom of your heart, kindly stand with me using the numbers listed. Use those numbers (0752217561, 0786186122) to send through whatever financial assistance that you can afford” Dj Bush Baby said
