Mandoza aka Mduduzi Tshabalala lived up to his popular song, Nkalakatha, which is about the abuse of status and power, when he slapped his wife at a shopping centre in Soweto at the weekend.
The fact that August is Women's Month did not matter to the celebrated muso when he slapped his wife, Mpho, in full view of the public after she apparently caused a scene over a woman.
Sources told Sowetan that Mandoza arrived at Pimville Square escorted by more than five cars, including one of a woman known as Noxolo Ntsokolo, whom Mpho suspects is dating her husband.
"Mandoza was there to meet Mpho, in the company of six friends. She confronted him on the spot about what Ntsokolo was doing there and went crazy after that," said one source.
When the furious wife did not get answers from her hubby, she demanded to speak to Ntsokolo, who in turn refused to say anything to her.
"Then Mpho confiscated Ntsokolo's car keys. And the six friends shouted 'bitch' as she followed Mpho to get her keys back.
Mandoza lost it and slapped his wife," said the sources.
Mandoza's cousin and a dancer, known as Gap, is said to have intervened and got the keys from Mpho which he handed back to Ntsokolo.
He was then bumped on the legs with a car by the jealous Mpho.
But Soweto police spokesman Captain Lindiwe Mbatha said that they were not investigating the fracas because a case had not been opened.
Ntsokolo confirmed the incident but denied being the kwaito star's girlfriend. However, a source said the two have been an item for the past two years.
Ntsokolo said: "Mandoza has been my friend for years, we are not dating. I don't know what the wife's problem was because she called me names. She's known me all along."
She said she was weighing up her options on whether to lay charges against Mpho for insulting her in public.
The musician was not available for comment at the time of going to press.
