I was forced to admit the crime – Pitch Black Afro fumes after being sentenced to 10 years in jail


After he was found guilty of culpable homicide on Thursday at the Johannesburg High Court, musician Thulani Ngcobo has been sentenced.

The hip hop artist who is popularly known as Pitch Black Afro was sentenced to 10 years in prison, five of which was suspended.

The Matofotofo hitmaker was initially charged with murder but it was later changed to culpable homicide.


Pitch Black Afro has been facing an on going trial after his wife Catherine Modisane, was found dead at a bed and breakfast in Jozi two years ago.

Previously celebgossip.co.za reported that on Thursday, Judge J du Plessis told the Johannesburg High Court the Matofotofo hit maker presented himself as a poor witness.

"He presented himself as a poor witness under questions from the state."

He has, however, not been found guilty for defeating the ends of justice.

The judge further said the state didn't prove beyond reasonable doubt that Ngcobo had planned to kill Modisane, but added that it was clear from the postmortem report that she died from blunt-force trauma to the head.

After hearing the news, Pitch Black Afro did not take it well and claimed he was forced to admit to the crime.

"I won't take this lying down. Bayang'sukela. They've wasted one-and-a-half years of my life," he said.
