Gqom queen Busiswa “Busi” Qqulu was embroiled in a love triangle brawl that resulted in her baby daddy allegedly beating up her male friend and fellow artist, whom he accused of bonking her.
The incident occurred at the singer’s apartment in Midrand in the wee hours of yesterday.
Speaking to Sunday World, Qqulu’s friend Themba Kubeka alleged he was with the songbird at a nightclub in Rosebank, Joburg, when the musician’s baby daddy Katlego Mlangeni arrived and gave them a strange look.
Sensing blood, they let the joint and went to the artist’s apartment where she told him that Mlangeni was physically abusive towards her.
Kubeka said Mlangeni arrived and blitzed into the apartment and allegedly punched him several times a er accusing him of dating her.
He said he tried to drag Qqulu out of the house to save her from the beatings but Mlangeni violently dragged her back into the flat.
“His friend then went to my car and hit it with a re extinguisher. Then Themba came and took the extinguisher from his friend and beat me with it on my lips and then smashed my car’s rear window with it,” said Kubeka.
He said he was rescued by the police who arrived and took him to Midrand Police Station, where he opened cases of malicious damage to property and assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm against Mlangeni and his friend.
Police spokesperson Kay Makhubele confirmed that the police are investigating a case of common assault but no one has been arrested.
“I’m worried because Busi is scared to open a case because the baby daddy has been threatening to release sensitive information about her,” said Kubeka.
Kubeka, who is a rapper, said he was just friends with the singer and had known her from when they both belonged to Kalawa Jazmee music stable.
Attempts to solicit comments from Qqulu drew a blank yesterday as her cellphone rang unanswered and she did not respond to text messages.
Mlangeni, writing on his Twitter page, claimed that he found Qqulu and Kubeka having sex, not only in their home but in their bed.
“I go in the house and it’s unlocked, seems like they decided to do a quickie and the guy can go … I go into our bedroom, both Busiswa and Marc are naked having sex on the same bed I sleep on every day.
“I took a snippet of the video coz I noticed they didn’t hear me and I started physically fighting Marc while he was naked,” Mlangeni explained.
“He managed to run to the gate that’s when his friend woke up from the car,” he wrote.
