The Assault

According to reports Pitch Black's friends joined the fray, kicking, slapping and punching Mafatshe while the Rosebank Mall security guards stood by.

The Mall later demanded compensation from Pitch Black's record company, Ghetto Ruff, claiming the musician and his friends broke tables, chairs and windows worth thousands of rands during the altercation.

No charge of assault was layed, however.
