Johannesburg – The sentencing procedures of Sindiswe Manqele are expected to kick off on Wednesday in the Randburg Magistrate's Court.

Manqele was convicted of killing Hip Hop artist, Nkululeko "Flabba" Habedi.

She fatally stabbed him in the heart after the two had an argument as they returned from a Sandton nightclub.

Wednesday also marks the anniversary of the day on which she stabbed Habedi.

Earlier in the case, the court heard that the argument was sparked by the presence at the club of Habedi's ex-girlfriend who had allegedly danced provocatively in front of him.

The situation was further escalated when Habedi and Manqele exchanged words after she entertained a man who paid her a compliment.

Manqele was previously reduced to tears when the court ruled she acted with intent when she stabbed Habedi.
