|Timi Dakolo and wife, Busola|
We all know the last month of the year is a special month of thanksgiving but December will be an extra special month of praises to God for Timi Dakolo who along with his wife Busola could have died in today's helicopter crash which claimed the life of the Kaduna State Governor Patrick Yakowa, a former national security adviser Owoeye Azazi, and others.
Dakolo who is expected to perform at the closing ceremony of the 'Rivers State Carnival' (Caniriv), was meant to fly along with Governor Yakowa, immediate-past National Security Adviser, Andrew Azazi and four others but opted out, deciding to travel by road at the last minute.
'Timi is doing okay, he was meant to fly on that chopper but he didn't. I just got off the phone with him', Tony 'Don T' Anifite, an executive for Now Muzik, Dakolo's management team says.
Timi Dakolo who missed death by a whisker took to micro-blogging site Twitter to douse the fears and give thanks to God. 'God saved me', he tweeted.
