Last Night, whilst dropping off fellow artist Batundi from my label Jacquel Music Group, in Linden – I was involved in a car hijacking and we were both kidnapped and robbed in Linden. The incident took place in the evening at 8:30pm. We only got released at approximately 4am in a hostel area in Soweto. The perpetrators held us at gunpoint, hand cuffed us and kept us in the boot for hours on end as they cleaned out our bank accounts. By Gods grace, we have survived and we are alright. They have unfortunately taken the vehicle along with other items that were in the car. The vehicle is currently still being tracked in an attempt to recover it. Please be on the look out for a white Range Rover Evoque with the number plate DM 08 ZC GP. Please contact Linden Police on 011 888 9211 if you have any information. All your help is appreciated. Much Love, TRESOR. || @Jacquelmusicgroup @TheAloreGroup
