Pitch Black Afro's wife Catherine 'Trisha' Modusane has been murdered and he is the prime suspect. The musician has been charged with premeditated murder as well as defeating the ends of justice.
Thulani Ngcobo, better known by his stage name Pitch Black Afro has been charged with murder after his wife, Catherine ‘Trisha’ Modusane, was found dead on the 31st of December.
While he now seeks legal aid, the case was postponed to 15 January, according to a report by The Citizen. The rapper says he has no money for a lawyer.
The rapper seemed to be in a good mood when he appeared at the Hillbrow Magistrate Court and gave his manager, Bheki Mlambo, a secretive letter and instructed him to "keep it safe for her". It's not known what's in the letter.
This comes after Pitch Black denied killing Trisha. Briefly.co.za reported that after a night of partying and boozing with friends, Pitch Black's wife was found dead with bruises covering her body.
Sources close to the couple believed Trisha was murdered, the Daily Sun reported. Pitch Black and his wife had been invited to a friend's flat in Bellevue, Joburg, on 30 December.
According to sources, the couple was drinking for most of the night before they got into an argument and left. They reportedly booked into a bed and breakfast for the night. However, Trisha allegedly showed up at the same flat, without shoes and looking distressed.
