Namibia: The Dogg Involved in Car Accident

Kwaito artist The Dogg, real name Martin Morocky, was involved in a motor vehicle accident yesterday morning just before 08h00.

The Dogg and his girlfriend and mother of his two daughters, model Nonvula Mapolombo, were the only passengers in the vehicle at the time of the accent and were both said to be unharmed.

The accident took place on the corner of Hendrik Witbooi Street and Sam Nujoma Drive between Hochland Park and Dorado Park and did not involve any other car.

A witness told The Namibian that it seemed that Morocky lost control of the vehicle which resulted in him hitting an incline on the side of the road.

When contacted Morocky confirmed the accident but said he didn't want to talk about it. He did however say that he was taking his girlfriend to work when the accident happened and it resulted from him trying to avoid a taxi. Later in the day he posted a message on his Facebook fan page which read: "If only taxi drivers can change the way they drive... I know you are hustling"- The Dogg.

Morocky also assured his fans that he is fine. "They should not worry, it was nothing big, I am even on my way to the studio right now."

The Dogg won a Kora Award late last year and is scheduled to release his much-anticipated album in March this year.
