UPCOMING South African-based singer Innocent Chikuku, better known as Yung The Hustler, last week dodged death by a whisker when he was shot in the face in a hijack in Eldorado Park near Soweto.
The 26-year-old, who has released a number of rap and house tracks such as Bambelela, was parked at his girlfriend’s house last Thursday night when the near tragic event happened.
“I was chilling with my girlfriend at their gate and from nowhere I saw two VW Polos. Four guys came out and came straight to my window. One grabbed me by the throat while pointing a pistol to my face. I started wrestling with him for the gun and he shot at me,” said Chikuku.
