AWARD-winning musician Vusi Nova was stripped‚ beaten and abandoned in Soweto after being kidnapped in a two-hour horror hijacking yesterday morning.

Nova’s manager Lance Stehr said the musician had been “stripped and beaten” during the incident before police were alerted to his whereabouts in Soweto at about 6.45am.
“The other musician was discovered in Riverlea with an ear partially cut off. Vusi is safe and that is all that matters‚” Stehr said.
“He is pissed off and giving a statement to police at the moment.”
Muthaland Entertainment spokesman Sewala Dikgale said friends and family were on their way to the police station to be with the star.
