Magesh was pronounced dead while receiving treatment at Dedza district hospital. Other people in the minibus sustained minor injuries during the accident.
The crash happened hours after Dedza beat Ekwendeni Hammers 3-2 at Dedza Stadium where Mageshi also entertained fellow fans with his dancing moves.
“After the game we gathered at Ashley’s celebrating our team’s victory. Around 9pm he recieved a call that one of the supporters of Dedza Dynamos FC is at Dedza district hospital.
