Hey everyone,

Friday night on my way to Johannesburg, my cousin and 2 of our friends were hijacked by 4 guys parading as the “police” and taken to the middle of nowhere. We were held at gun point with bags over our heads for 2 hours. Our valuables, clothes and vehicle was stolen and we were left there. We eventually managed to find a road and get help.

I am okay, we are okay. Still in shock but taking a few days off. The show will go on as planned next week but there will be no videos this week🙏🏽
