In an interview, GZE said the accident happened fast when he was coming from the studio.
“The injury was quite severe but I am on the mend.
“I can now move on my own though I am still hobbling around on one crutch.
“I was injured in a freak and unfortunate accident as I was leaving No Limit Studios on a late Friday evening,” he said.
“I ended up recording some music after setting up a recording studio at my premise to keep myself occupied.
“As long as there is life, I will always be inspired and I will make music.
“My new focus is to make records that affect a positive change in people’s thoughts and actions.”
GZE, who is riding high with a mixtape titled 400 Bars, said he now appreciates the role of music in the society.
“I now appreciate the role music plays in shaping the society.
“It’s the one thing people have in common despite geographic location or social status so it’s a good starting point,” he said.
GZE rose to fame with tracks like Jesa, Wadiwa, Nditore and Dashibige with the group Trynyty.
“I am really a just quiet and low key person.
”I am just happy and calm doing the things I love.
“Music just happens to be one of them, most of my time I spent reading, recording, getting back to my work out routines or just enjoying conversations with close friends and family,” he said.
Meanwhile, GZE urged road users to observe all road rules and regulations to avoid fatal accidents.
“All drivers should observe traffic rules courteously at all times, your diligence could be the thin line between life and death,” he said.
