Amakye Dede’s car was rammed into by a Sprinter bus from Kumasi with him inside it, as he was waiting to perform at a show at the Paradise Spot, a few meters away from the popular Linda Dor Restaurant.
Highlife legend, Amakye Dede is likely to be discharged tomorrow after he was involved in an accident on New Year’s Day in the Eastern Region, Dr. Kofi Yeboah, medical superintendent at the HAWA Memorial Saviour Hospital has said.
Dr Yeboah told Joy News that Amakye Dede sustained “multiple facial abrasions and lacerations” but “not deep enough to warrant surgery”. According to him, the wounds were "only cleaned and dressed".
Asked when he would be discharged, the doctor replied, "It won't go beyond tomorrow".

Isaac Yeboah, manager of Amakye Dede who was also the driver, has been confirmed dead by police at Kyebi in the Eastern Region. The bodyguard is said to have been injured.
Amakye Dede’s Toyota Corolla car was rammed into by a Sprinter bus from Kumasi with him inside it, as he was waiting to perform at a show at the Paradise Spot, a few meters away from the popular Linda Dor Restaurant.
“I saw a taxi driver who entered the main Kumasi-Accra Highway and then he went to the fuel station to buy fuel. After that, he tried to get onto the main road but he was enjoying the music being played at the Paradise spot. But at the same time, he was entering the main road not knowing that Amakye Dede’s car was just behind his car. Once the Taxi driver realized that Amakye Dede’s car was not moving, he decided to pass by it and move onto the main road,” Prince Yeboah, an eye witness, told Citi News.
“Amakye Dede also tried to move from the location and strangely an oncoming sprinter bus collided head-on with Amakye Dede’s corolla car and the taxi driver immediately sped off from the scene. There was a guy and two ladies standing at the fuel station who were also hit by the sprinter. The taxi driver caused the accident. Some people sustained injuries and there was one guy who I think can only survive by the grace of God because he got stuck in the sprinter bus and we managed to pull him out and sent him to the Hospital,” he added.
