Ashanti Pulled Out Concert After Cousin Was Killed



Ashanti pulled out of a concert over the weekend after her cousin was killed by a 17-year-old drunken driver

R&B singer Ashanti has to reluctantly cancel a concert over the weekend after her cousin, Quinshae Snead, was killed in a Randburg car smash caused by a 17-year-old drunken driver.

Snead died on Saturday night just hours before Ashanti to perform in front of thousands of fans at her first-ever South African concert. Chronicling on the accident, police said Snead was on her way to Ashanti's hotel to fetch something for the star when her car suddenly was hit from behind by the suspect's.

As a result, Snead was flung from the car as it rolled over and thrown into the path of another car in the opposite lane. Johannesburg metro police spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar confirmed that the 17-year-old unlicensed driver had stolen his mother's car while also "was under the influence of liquor." The teenager was then arrested for drunken driving and hospitalized.
