A South African pop star was shot and killed in an apparent road rage incident in the township of Soweto.
Tebogo Madingoane was killed in Soweto
Tebogo Madingoane, a member of the chart-topping Mafikizolo group, was killed on Saturday.
Police said the 32-year-old was shot after an alleged altercation with another driver, who has been arrested.
Mafikizolo, who play Kwaito music, recently won best African pop and best group at the South African Music Association Awards.
A police spokesman said Madingoane was pronounced dead on
arrival in hospital.
The future of trio Mafikizolo is uncertain because of singer Nonhlanhla Mafu is heavily pregnant and has been on maternity leave for a number of months, leaving Theo Kgosinkwe to front the band.
The manager of the group, Julius Mekwa, told The Star newspaper that Madingoane's death was a huge blow to the industry.
He said any decision on the future of the group would be made later.
South Africa has a reputation for high levels of violent crimes including shootings and car-jackings, especially in and around Johannesburg.
Although the country's murder rate has actually been declining in the past decade, it is still about eight times the overall level in the US.
