The legendary kwaito star Mdu Masilela has been accused of assaulting his baby mama Sibahle Dlamini.

Masilela is reportedly out on just R500 bail after the woman he cheated on his wife with opened a case of assault against him.

The Chomi YaBana hitmaker reportedly met Dlamini last year and the pair share an eight month old baby. 

Masilela allegedly stated he paid damages to the Dlamini family since he wanted the child to carry his surname. He also allowed Dlamini and the child to stay in his house in Bramley.

Speaking to Sowetan, Masilela revealed he had gone to evict Dlamini from the house on Saturday night when the fight broke out. "There was never any intent on my part to do any harm to her. My wife was informed”.

“The content of the discussion and her calling my wife, only to realise she knows about our meeting, led to her uncalled for outburst. In the course of the altercation and while defending myself, she might have been hurt. Nothing persisted to show intent on my part. I feel the matter can be resolved without it being for public consumption. She threw a glass of wine and hit me with many objects," he added.

Dlamini’s  pictures of the alleged abuse surfaced on social media after they were leaked by someone close to her.

According to the publication, Masilela has since offered an apology to all women in the country.

"I'm not proud of what happened over the weekend and I wish to extend my apology to women all over South Africa and the world. There are better ways to deal with disputes and disagreements.”

The Kwaito star was also arrested earlier this year for allegedly threatening to kill his wife. Masilela was accused of pulling a gun on his wife and then shooting wildly in the air.
