Sindisiwe Manqele has received a 12-year prison sentence for the murder of Skwatta Kamp's Nkuleleko "Flabba" Habedi on 9 March 2015.WATCH

Johannesburg - Convicted murderer Sindisiwe Manqele will on Tuesday apply for leave to appeal her conviction and 12-year sentence for killing her rapper boyfriend Nkululeko "Flabba" Habedi.

Manqele stabbed Habedi in the chest in March last year at his Alexandra home after the two had a heated argument.

The row was over Habedi's ex-girlfriend, Kea, who had reportedly danced seductively in front of him at a Sandton nightclub just hours before the confrontation.

Manqele pleaded not guilty to the murder charge, saying she had acted in self-defence after Habedi had pinned her down, rubbed his saliva on her face and poked at her stomach with a knife as he accused her of seeking men who could provide better for her financially.

During the trial, under cross-examination by Prosecutor Paul Schutte, Manqele buckled under the pressure and told the court that she had intentionally stabbed the hip-hop musician.
