Music greats Stompie Manana, Abigail Kubeka, Caiphus Semenya and Letta Mbulu sat on one of the benches in the near empty courtroom.
Msomi appeared briefly on charges of theft. He avoided eye contact with his fellow musicians during the proceedings.
The producer was arrested last month after the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation followed a probe into R8million that was allegedly stolen from the Living Legends Trust account last year.
The programme was started by the Department of Arts and Culture and a trust was set up in order to empower living legends when it came to accessing opportunities available to them.
