Amstel Makwane, a member of the controversial gay brigade and wanna-be pop group 3Sum, escaped death on Tuesday night when he was allegedly hijacked at gunpoint.

Makwane was allegedly driving his manager Tshidi Moagi's (who was a passenger in the vehicle) Golf GTI in Rosebank.

Moagi said that at Macedon Street, two men wearing balaclavas suddenly pointed fire arms at them. They ordered them out of the car and drove off.

"It was a very scary experience. I'm traumatised," said Moagi.

Moagi said they watched helplessly as the men drove away.

"We just stood there and watched them drive away. There were three of us in my car. We were from Newtown. Amstel was driving and Prosper Mkwaiwa, my business associate, was following us in another car. We tried to call the tracking company but it seems that the hijackers had already disconnected the tracking device," Moagi said.

Makwane told Sowetan that he thanked his ancestors that he was still alive.

"I am still shocked. This was the second time I had been in a hijacking incident. I thank God that I am still alive," he said.

A case has been opened at Rosebank police station.
