Bella Shmurda, a popular Nigerian singer, recently shared a tragic incident from his past when he used to work at Dangote’s noodles factory in Lagos. According to him, the death of one of his colleagues deeply affected him. The colleague accidentally fell from the roof of the company’s building into steaming industrial oil, which led to his instant decision to quit the job.
Bella Shmurda recounted this heart-wrenching experience during a recent interview with Cool FM Nigeria.
According to Shmurda:
“It was like a Saturday morning. I went to work. We started working already. We just heard everybody screaming that someone fell into hot oil. He was cleaning the roof, so he fell down. In the factory, there is this oil that the Indomie [noodles] pass through to get hard because it is actually soft. It will pass through the oil to get hard, then it will come inside the nylon, and then you will pack it inside the packet.
“So, the guy fell inside the oil. It took long before they brought him out. Guy, him don fry. Omo, that day ehn, the clothes wey dem dey give us, I just off am, off their shoe, I just dey go. I said I no dey work again.”
