The attack, in which his vehicle was riddled with bullets, shocked his family and friends, the Musgrave/Berea community and the music and film industries.
His brother-in-law, Mark Ralfe, said: “The family is devastated, but the prognosis is good.”
A father of two, Kotze has made music videos for some of South Africa’s biggest hip hop artists. On Friday, he was still in the intensive care unit of a Durban hospital and Ralfe, who had driven from Estcort to be with Kotze’s wife and children, said: “He is the most unlucky person to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, but the luckiest to still be alive.”
The four shots which hit Kotze, missed his vital organs, including his heart and lungs, as well as his spine.
