Ukhozi FM DJ Chilli M is trying to deal with the death of his daughter.

The little girl, named Nkanyezi, died in a car accident last week while returning from a family holiday. 

The DJ told the Daily Sun that baby Nkanyezi was thrown out of the car. She died on the scene.

 The accident happened near Hartbeespoort Dam, North West.

He told the paper: "My wife and I were travelling in separate cars. Nkanyezi and my son were with their mom when the driver lost control of the car while swerving to avoid crashing into another vehicle. When the car stopped, Nkanyezi was thrown out and landed on the pavement. When I picked her up she was severely injured and died in my arms."

He told Daily Sun that Nkanyezi was buried over the weekend.  "My wife and son were also seriously injured – my son didn’t write his final exams. I can’t explain the way I feel. What happened to me is something I would never wish on my worst enemy."

He reportedly told his Ukhozi FM listeners to be patient with him as he is still recovering after losing his child. He also thanked those who supported him during the difficult time.
