WELL-KNOWN Afrikaans singer Steve Hofmeyr two nights ago allegedly grabbed a reporter by the throat at the Deuriemikke music festival in Pretoria’s Loftus Versveld.

According to Prins, Hofmeyr initially gave him a filthy look in Loftus’s presidential suite. Shortly afterward, Hofmeyr charged at him in the bar section, and grabbed him by the throat: “I thought I was going to be smashed against the wall … it’s amazing how big his hand is. All I heard was ‘Gaan kak [go and s***]’. His eyes were huge.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
