Zimbabwean musician Thuthani 'Suppa Star' Ndlovu shot dead in South Africa

A Zimbabwean musician based in South Africa, Thuthani 'Suppa Star' Ndlovu was on Sunday shot dead in Diepsloot while promoting his band's new album.

Suppa Star was a member of a Rhumba entourage, Mlambo Express Band which is based in Johannesburg. He was shot together with another unnamed Zimbabwean by a businessman suspected to be of Somali origin.

Mlambo Express Band manager, Thabani Ndlovu said when the tragic incident happened, his band was travelling around Diepsloot selling their CDs to residents on Sunday evening. Ndlovu said according to the family, if all goes as per plan, burial arrangements will take place in Mphoends, rural Plumtree at the weekend.

In a statement to band's followers on Facebook, Ndlovu narrated the incident:

"We set up sound on our Hilux bakkie and drove around Diepsloot announcing and selling our new CD. It was one of the stops that we were pulled over by a fan who wanted to buy his copy. It happened that it was next to a shop which is owned by the man who shot our Suppa Star Thuthani. The owner came out of his shop unnoticed and approached me on the driver's seat and accused me of parking in front of his shop.

"he literally pushed me swearing with every F**** word you can imagine. We tried our best to calm him down telling him we were just passing. All this happened within a minute," he band manager said.

It is said that the shop owner tried to shoot Ndlovu whom he missed before quickly turning the gun to Mlambo Express Band leader Fiseli 'Semangwe' ngwenya whom he also missed.

According to Ndlovu, it is at this point that the shop owner turned to Thuthani who was reportedly sitting on top of sound equipment at the back of the car. He allegedly fired a shot at Thuthani's chest - and he died instantly sitting upright. Ndlovu said upon realising that Thuthani was dead, everyone at the scene burst into tears.

"It was a very traumatic incident that was very hurting. No one knew what to do. Everyone kept asking 'But why did you shoot him'. We could not help but scream," narrated Ndlovu.

Meanwhile, the Somali man appeared in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, police said. Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini said Bishar Isaack, 39, appeared on charges of murder. The case was postponed to June 4, when he was expected to bring a formal bail application.
