He added that there were 15 of them in the Adanma Luke movie production The Other Side Of Life, but only two wore life jackets.

When Junior Pope made a video in the boat, the driver watched him and wanted to appear. TC noted that the driver had an earpiece on him and was distracted, so he could not see a canoe that collided with his boat.

They all fell into the water, and he held the rope holding the boat on dry land. He and another struggled to survive using the rope.

TC had a scar on his leg from the accident, which he displayed while making the video.
