The year 2021 started out on a low but hopeful note for so many people all over the world considering how the year 2020 was a tough one for most people.
While the year 2020 was trailed with a lot of bad news, people were glad to go into the New Year without any trouble and hoped for it to continue that way.
However, while some people were lucky to survive the year 2020, they also cheated death in 2021 which is just about three weeks old.
The month of January has been trailed with news of some celebrities who have had things happen to them.
Some of them were involved in car crashes, others totally lost their vehicles while some of them contracted the dreaded COVID-19.
Legit.ng has gathered a list of these celebrities who have had cause to give thanks to God for not making their situation worse.
1. Shola Ogudu:
Top Nigerian singer, Wizkid’s first baby mama, Shola Ogudu, was involved in a car crash and she took to social media on January 8 to share the bad news.
The socialite shared photos of her totalled Toyota Camry car and fans could not help but marvel at the damage that had taken place. Fans were glad to see that she and her son, Tife, were doing fine.
2. Binta Diallo:
Nigerian star, Wizkid’s Guinean second baby mama, Binta Diallo, was also moved to share that she was also involved in a car crash after the singer’s first baby mama recounted her ordeal.
Diallo explained that she had no intention of talking about her accident on social media because it wasn't as serious. She, however, changed her mind about it after Ogudu shared hers - both of which happened on the same day.
3. Ali Baba:
