Pitch Black Afro is a free man after being released from jail last Friday.
“The department can confirm that [he] was released as his sentence expired on 18 August 2023. He benefited from the special remission of sentence,” Department of Correctional Services spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo said.
Nxumalo said that the rapper was sentenced to ten years in jail, five of which were suspended, beginning on June 19, 2020, for the killing of his fiancée.
Judge J Du Plessis found the rapper guilty of culpable homicide. He was initially accused of premeditated murder and obstructing justice.
Modisane was reportedly killed by a blunt -force to the head.
