Relatives of soca artiste Denise "Saucy Wow" Belfon said yesterday that she was back home safely after she was involved in a vehicular accident during her visit to the Bahamas on the weekend.
According to reports from the island, Belfon and her manager Natasha Thomas were on their way to a concert titled "Denise Belfon Live" at Club Secrets, Palmetto Point, on Saturday when they were involved in a vehicular accident four miles before reaching their destination.
Reports revealed that Belfon was airlifted to a hospital in New Providence, Nassau, following the accident on the island of Eleuthera. Isabella Joseph and Bahamians Perez Smith and Stephen Bain were also reported to be with her at the time. The driver of the vehicle, Clifford Sands, was not seriously injured.
Unofficial reports suggest the vehicle may have experienced mechanical problems and overturned several times before coming to a stop.
A photograph of Belfon being put into an airplane to be taken to hospital was circulated on social media and some of her friends wished her a speedy recovery.
Contacted yesterday, a member of the family said she was resting at home and that they were disappointed with media reports.
"I can't give any statement. When she is ready she will address it. Things are being blown out of proportion," he said.
