TKZee band mates Zwai Bala and Magesh have reportedly turned into enemies. According to Sunday Sun, Zwai wants Magesh to go to jail for allegedly beating him up.

Appearing in the Randburg Magistrates’ Court on Friday, Magesh pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm (Assault GBH).

The alleged incident happened in February. According the paper, Zwai told the court he took Magesh to [Magesh’s] girlfriend’s house in Dainfern, Johannesburg, and was invited inside for a drink. "When we were inside, his girlfriend, Nandi Phutuma, wanted wine and the accused lost his temper with her and verbally abused her. He called her a monkey. I felt it was my duty to call him to order. I was mindful of the fact that she has a seven-year-old boy. I said to her, ‘I hope he doesn’t speak like that in front of the boy,’ and she said, ‘he does’."

After a heated argument, Zwai allegedly decided to leave, and Nandi escorted him to his car, saying she was scared. Zwai reportedly explained that he got into the car and reversed. "I stopped the car to talk to his girlfriend to check if she’d be fine since I was leaving. The accused came from behind her and hit me across my face with a sharp object. Blood was gushing from my face and my vision was blurred," he testified.

Zwai apparently went to Fourways Hospital where his face was stitched up. He reportedly has cellphone pictures of the injuries. Sunday Sun also added that court read the doctor’s report which showed Zwai was cut on his upper lip, suffered a swollen nose and had a deep wound on his face.
