Two individuals who were on a motorbike dancing to the popular “one corner” tune have met their untimely death at Ntotroso, a mining town in the Asutifi North District of Brong-Ahafo Region.
The accident occurred around midnight on Tuesday, according to a GNA report.
Both were on the motorbike dancing to the tune when they reportedly collided with someone else who had been skidding off the street and crashed right into a structure.
Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’, happens to be the biggest song in Ghana.
The dance craze has seen people go gaga by either perching on whatever object is before them, go under cars, chairs or whatever while some isolate themselves on the floor to do a wild gyrating move.
The ‘One Corner’ dance craze has transcended the borders of Ghana and it is currently the hottest thing in Nigeria.
In line with the report, the trio had gone on a drinking spree and was returning when the regrettable incident happened.
An eyewitness said the motor rider was speeding in a sharp curve while dancing.
He added that even though the manner in which the victims were ‘displaying’ on the motorbike attracted public caution, they defied all warnings.
Kwabena Fante, 17, and Nyarko Abronoma, 15, died immediately because not one of them was wearing a crash helmet.
The bodies of have since been deposited at the St. Elizabeth Catholic Hospital mortuary at Hwidiem in the Asutifi South District.
The 3rd person on the motorbike, Collins Krukyi, also aged 17, is in a critical condition at the same hospital.
