Two people 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.
The two were on the motorbike dancing to the tune when they reportedly collided with another person who was skidding off the road and crashed into a structure.
Patapaa’s ‘One Corner’, is currently 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 others isolate themselves on the ground 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.
According to the report, the trio had gone on a drinking spree and was returning when the unfortunate incident happened.
An eyewitness said the motor rider was speeding in a sharp curve while dancing.
He added that although 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 on the spot because none 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 third person on the motorbike, Collins Krukyi, also aged 17, is in a critical condition at the same hospital.
