Ms. Dynamite Seriously Injured While Filming ‘The Race’

UK Rapper Ms. Dynamite was injured in a high speed car crash, while filming for the UK reality TV show The Race.

Ms. Dynamite, born Niomi McLean-Daley, was treated at the track’s medical center and was unconscious after the accident.

Shortly after, the north London rapper was airlifted to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, and where she is being kept for observation.

Sky One, the TV channel broadcasting The Race reality series, stated that Ms Dynamite was travelling over 100 m.p.h and the impact, which occurred on Sunday afternoon, sent Ms Dynamite’s Formula Ford spinning down the track for approximately 50 meters before the car came to a halt.

She was also the second person to be injured during the filming of the show.

“We take health and safety very seriously and cover it from every angle,” a rep said in a statement. “We would not let them take part unless we were satisfied with the level of competence they were at and all the necessary safety measures were in place.”

Ms Dynamite rose to fame in 2002 with her debut album, A Little Deeper.

She was arrested earlier this year, with brother and rapper, Akala for assaulting a female police officer.
