Johannesburg - Well-known Hip Hop artist Pitch Black Afro's case for allegedly murdering his wife has been postponed to Tuesday for verification of address and profile.
Thulani Ngcobo, commonly known as Pitch Black Afro, by wearing the wig Afro appeared in an empty gallery in Johannesburg Magistrate's court on Thursday without the wig that earned him his stage name.
He stands accused of killing his wife Catherine Modisane, 41, at a bed and breakfast on December 30 in Yeoville.
Magistrate Lucas Van Der Schyff asked Ngcobo if he would be able to afford a self-appointed lawyer but Ngcobo said "I don't have money to appoint my personal lawyer so I would love to apply for a legal aid one".
As Ngcobo was leaving the dock he called over his manager Bheki to collect a piece of paper from him and said: "Please keep it safe my brother".
