It’s over a month since rapper OkMalumKoolKat was arrested for sexually assaulting a woman in her hotel room in the city of Hobart in Australia. However, last night, the rapper real name Simiso Zwane revealed in a statement that he’s been released from prison and he is back in South Africa.

The rapper was in Australia to perform at the pre-eminent cultural festival known as FOMO. He was allegedly drunk when he entered the woman’s hotel room through the outside door that she had unintentionally left open.

In his statement OkMalumKoolKat declined to go into details about the incident that led to his arrest, but confirmed that he was arrested and charged with assault with intent of indecency. “I fully understand the magnitude of this issue. I have had time by myself to reflect on things most important to me and I am working through everything,” he said.

The Usangikhumbula hit-maker was sentenced to one month in an Australian prison. He said having served his time in a foreign country and endured the hardships of the sentence, he would like to move on with his life.

“I am sincerely sorry to everybody that has been affected by this,” he said.

He asked the media to respect his privacy and that of his family as he tries to heal and move on.
