The much-applauded performance at the Vodafone African Legends Night in Accra by legendary South African musician Yvonne Chaka Chaka could have been her last after she was caught in a crossfire that left one person dead and another injured in Midrand, north of Johannesburg, on Tuesday afternoon.

According to reports, there was a shootout between hijackers and SA police after three men stole a panel van and were pursued by police. One hijacking suspect was killed while another was injured. A third suspect managed to escape.

In a series of tweets, the music star who headlined last Saturday's African Legends Night at the Accra Conference Centre shared her scary experience, along with photos from the scene, saying how grateful she was to be alive.
