Bella Shmurda, a popular Nigerian singer, has recounted a tragedy while working at Dangote’s noodles factory in Lagos.
He claimed that the death of one of his coworkers, who fell from the company’s building’s roof into steaming industrial oil, prompted him to resign immediately.
During a recent interview with Cool FM Nigeria, he described the tragic experience.
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.
