He credited his wife, Nimo Gachuiri, for her unwavering support during his recovery, highlighting the crucial role she played during this challenging period.

The gravity of the experience prompted Mr. Seed to immortalize the date, April 29, 2023, with a tattoo on his left hand as a constant reminder of his journey to survival.

“Exactly 1 year today. Am living testimony,” he shared, encapsulating the profound impact of the accident on his life.

In a candid interview with SPM Buzz, the “Kumbe Kumbe” artist opened up about the physical and mental toll the accident had taken. He revealed suffering from brain shrinkage as a result of hitting his head during the impact, necessitating ongoing therapy to address his mental health struggles.

Recounting moments of dissociation, Mr Seed described how he would often find himself lost in thought, unaware of his surroundings for extended periods, only to snap back to reality moments later. His candidness shed light on the lingering effects of such traumatic events, emphasizing the importance of seeking professional help to cope with their aftermath.

Offering further insight, Mr Seed’s wife, Nimo, revealed that the couple was en route to inspect land in Nanyuki when tragedy struck.

Nimo continued sharing the experience via her Instagram stories, expressing her confusion about whether to feel happy or not, as some of her close associates lost their lives in the accident.

“I don’t know whether to be happy that some friends survived because I can’t stop crying. Others lost their lives too. Everything is blurry… I just remember running and seeing them on the ground and begging him to wake up,” Nimo said.
