Rapper Pitch Black Afro’s  spouse passed away on December 31. According to various news reports, he has now been arrested for allegedly murdering her.

Despite numerous reports in various media outlets naming the accused, police have not officially confirmed the identity of the man taken in custody for the murder of Catherine Modusane (41). She is the wife of Pitch Black Afro, whose real name is Thulani Ngcobo.

It was reported earlier that the Modusane had passed away and that a murder case had been opened.

While News24 reported only that confirmation had been received that a man “close” to the victim has been arrested for her alleged murder, The Sowetan has since reported that the man arrested was the rapper himself.

The Daily Sun, meanwhile, reports that police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini has confirmed that the rapper has been arrested and will appear in court tomorrow.

Dlamini has since denied having named the rapper and was neither willing to confirm or deny whether the star is behind bars.

Modusane reportedly died back on December 31, with the death initially thought to have been of natural causes, only for a murder docket to be opened later after foul play was suspected.

“An inquest docket was opened on December 31, 2018. After further investigation, a murder case was registered,” Dlamini told News24.
