South African businessman and kwaito artist DJ Sbu was allegedly attacked by a gang of security guards at the Major League Gardens Spring Party at FNB Stadium on Saturday night.
The award-winning musician and radio presenter whose real name is Sibusiso Leope confirmed the attack.
“We went to the event and started rehearsing behind the stage and to my shock the security guards and Major League associates started attacking us for no apparent reason,” he said.
The aftermath of the attack was that he allegedly sustained injuries to his head. In addition, the musician had to forfeit the gig as he left the venue with his dancers without performing.
Meanwhile, kwaito artist DJ Sbu said he regretted not pressing charges against the guards who attacked him. Though advised to press charges, Sbu turned it down because he didn’t want to spoil the show for Major League.
However, he’s now regretting his leniency as several speculations have emerged following the incident. Some of them even suggested that he acted out of drunkenness.
“I was advised to press charges but didn’t do that because the boys (Major League) had put up a nice event and had good sponsors. So, I didn’t want to dent the event by involving police and courts.
“But I now regret the decision because my bosses are getting the wrong information about what happened. People are saying I was drunk and that the whole thing was a drunken brawl, which is not true”
He went on to rubbish the claims saying;
“I didn’t even touch alcohol there. We went to the show and the next thing, the people who were hired to protect us became violent towards us. If we were provocative, why didn’t they call police on us, why attack us?
However, emerging reports say Sbu actually started the brawl. Dressed in an orange overall, the artist walked into the VIP section and started poking fun at former Y-FM 5FM presenter DJ Warras. When the guards called him to order, he allegedly went ‘Black Coffee style’ and slapped one of them. Thus, they pounced on him and gave him the beating of his life. In addition to a few blows,
