Three weeks after going through a horrible hijacking, singer Vusi Nova is back on social media and seems to be well over the life-threatening incident.

Vusi has been keeping a low profile ever since the ordeal by keeping away from all social media platforms. Nevertheless, he has made his comeback to social media with a message to his fans.

“Hey guys. I’m alive, well and back on social media. So good to be back,” he wrote, adding that he’s grateful for all the love, prayers and support he’s received since the hijacking.

Last month, Brixton police found award-winning RnB star Vusi Nova alive and well after he was stripped, beaten and abandoned in Soweto following a kidnapping that started from a two-hour horror hijacking. Vusi was hijacked alongside four others outside his home in Melville, Johannesburg. He was taken on a joyride afterwards before the drop off.

According to Stehr from Muthaland Entertainment, Nova and the members of the band 047 were hijacked outside his home by a group of four armed men.

We gathered that Vusi had just finished performing at a concert with Ntando on Thursday night when he and another singer from group 047 were hijacked in Melville. Shots were fired and according to Nova’s management, some of the members of the group managed to escape.

However, Vusi and a member of the 047 band were kidnapped by the hijackers. Subsequently, the 047 singer who was dropped in Riverlea‚ Johannesburg‚ reported the matter to the Brixton police. While he escaped alive, one of his ears was partially cut off.

However, an hour later at about 6.45am, they dropped Vusi off in Soweto where he was rescued alive.
