Benefit Concert To Help Bring Stability To Cssana – Who will Not Be Dispirited To Pull Those Tight Wire Threads On Her Guitar

By Wellington Kudiwa

Of course, no one in this world, except daredevils and stuntmen, would like to encounter a death and life situation, chiefly when it comes at a time and place you least anticipate such circumstances to occur.

Unluckily, this was the case for one of South Africa’s most talented music songstress – Nonguquko Mlaza – better known as Csana – who was recently robbed – Hollywood movie-style – at her home by gun-wielding robbers who disguised themselves as members of the South African Police Services by flashing fake police identities.

Luckily for Csana – her roommates and next-door neighbours who were robbed by the same criminals – escaped unharmed, but devastatingly terrified by the perilous incident.

In an interview this week Mlaza said the robbery occurred as she and her friends were about to leave for a performance in Pretoria the robbers broke into her home.

“As my friends and I were about to leave the house to attend an event in Pretoria. We went outside to take some photos of ourselves as we normally do before we go out. Moments after, I went back into the house to collect my stuff then suddenly two men appeared from nowhere claiming that they were looking for a certain man, Daniel.”

 

 

‘’They then produced police badges and I told them we do not have a Daniel in this house, so I told them to ask my neighbours whom we share the compound with as they might know this person,’’ she said.

Csana said the two bogus policemen proceeded to go to the neighbours place and robbed them before coming back into her house and robbing her as well.

‘’We went outside to check if the two men claiming to be police had found this Daniel, but then they were carrying some furniture and electrical accessories and putting it in their white car.
“At first we thought the property had been stolen and they were just recovering it, little did we know a robbery was actually taking place,” she said.

‘’The moment they saw us outside, they took out their guns before ordering everyone to lie down with our faces on the floor. That is when they entered my house and stole everything from cash (undisclosed), handbags, televisions, clothes, cellphones, furniture and a lot more,” the songstress added.

In addition, Mlaza said the bogus cops then fled the crime scene in a white car that looked like a Ford fiesta and, luckily no one was killed or injured during the shocking robbery.

 

 

However, despite the horrible ordeal, Mlaza, who lost most of her valuables – has found comfort and hope after a close friend, Richard Philani Dube, decided to hold a fundraising concert to assist the musician in getting back up on her feet again.

In this regard, Phulani Dube, popularly known in the entertainment industry as “Mr Dube”, said Csana is like a sister to him so he decided to organise the fundraising gig through his Grumption Inc Entertainment label which will be hosting the fundraising event on the 28th of May at Macanudo Lounge in Germiston.

“Well, Csana and myself are very close such that, to me, she is indeed like a sister. The robbery incident was quite unfortunate because Csana lost almost everything that she worked very hard for all these past years including household furniture, cash and anything of value that can be found in anyone’s home,’’ Dube said.

“The only way that I can help her replace at least some of the stolen property is by hosting the fundraising gig through my Grumption Inc Entertainment, at my Macanudo Lounge in Germiston on the 28th of May 2022,” he added.
Mr Dube also said they are still making some arrangements as for which artists will come to perform at the gig.

So for Csana, it is very evident that not all people are greedy and heartless as these robbers that struck inside her home, as shown by the act of kindness Mr Dube has presented towards one of Mzansi’s multi-talented songbird.

Subsequently, hopefully, Csana will not be dispirited to pull those tight wire threads on her guitar and will continue giving us more of those saccharine melodies as she has done these few past years.
