Durban kwaito artist Sosha, whose real name is Sbonelo Benjamin Ngcobo, allegedly beat up a girl until she was in a coma during the weekend.
Although the story was not broadly published on mainstream media, it was trending on Twitter on Monday.
It is alleged that Sosha beat the girl up because she had been doing drugs at his place against his will. However, many people argue that this does not justify what he did.
A number of Twitter users sounded highly incensed by Sosha’s brutal act, saying he should rot in jail. One user said he should get a long jail term because what he did was attempted murder.
In a radio interview, Sosha claimed that he only pushed her. However, the images of the girl’s face show that she was beaten brutally. Apparently Sosha was arrested soon after this incident. At the time of this writing, it was unknown whether he was still in jail or out on bail.
