Police have confirmed that Afro-pop musician Vusi Nova, who was kidnapped in a hijacking outside his house in Melville, Johannesburg, survived the ordeal.

His personal assistant Delphine Klassen said four men jumped out of a VW Polo and tried to steal the car Nova was travelling in, which had an additional four people in it.

Just before 5am, following a concert with Ntando, the hijackers took the Sama-winning artist, known for his song Ndikuthandile, and dragged another of his band members to their vehicle.

A gunshot apparently went off. The other band member, also a singer, was found shortly afterwards in Riverlea and Nova was later found, according to Klassen, “somewhere between Eldorado Park and Brixton”.

She said he had been left stripped down – only in his underwear and shoes.

Brixton police confirmed Nova was still alive after 6am following an appeal by his label for information on his whereabouts and frantic concern on social media.

His Range Rover, however, was found in Eldorado Park, according to eNCA
