Makhadzi escapes death after two gunmen robbed her and shot at her on Saturday night.
The singer who was to perform at Ga-Rankuwa Shisanyama in Tshwane relaxed in her car outside the venue and was approached by the robbers who took her phone.
The Ghanama hitmaker tried escaping the scene with her dancer when the two gunmen shot at her but they missed.
Open Mic Records company released a statement after the incident.
“I [as road manager] notified the promoter that we have arrived. The dancers were shown a table to settle [down] and wait. Makhazi remained in the car to rest and there was no security [guards] around.”
The statement added: “The guy put his gun on Makhazi’s neck and took her phone from her hand. And when she started screaming and running he [cocked] his gun and shot towards Makhazi and dancers but missed them.
“Everyone who was at the parking lot ran away. Upon leaving the venue we (Makhazi, dancer, and me) noticed a car following us, we went to the nearest police station. We opened a case at Ga-Rankuwa police station. Police even escorted us out of Ga-Rankuwa.”
The co-owner of the company, Lionel Jamela said they are shocked that someone would want to harm their superstar.
“Today (Tuesday), we have organised a counselling [session] for her and the dancers just to deal with the trauma. As the company, we promised to beef up security for our artists when they go out to work.”
Everyone attacked is fine but no one has been arrested.
Meanwhile, Provincial police spokesperson Col Dimakatso Sello confirmed that a case of robbery has been opened at Ga-Rankuwa police station.
