A 24-year-old Nyanga artist Zolani Nikani, also known as Vocal Zoid, was reportedly stabbed to death by his close friend over the weekend.
According to IOL, the incident happened following a disagreement between the two while partying in Matanzima Road in the Mau-Mau section.
The friend, 23, has since handed himself to the police.
This comes a few days after a 31 year-old man was brutally beaten and stabbed to death by his friends, before they dumped his body at his family’s doorstep in Malmesbury.
Shocked and traumatised
Reports said Riaan Syster’s family was left shocked and traumatised when they discovered his body in the morning.
“We were all sleeping and we didn’t know that he left his bungalow. But we heard my father screaming and ran out and found him lying there in front of the house.
“It was horrible, we thought he was still alive because his one eye was open.
“We covered his body with a blanket to try and keep him warm, but when the ambulance got here, they said he was already dead,” his sister Riaan Syster was quoted as saying.
The community told the family that his friends had accused him of robbing someone.
