He benefited from a special remission of sentence. He was initially sentenced to 10 years in prison for culpable homicide, of which five years were suspended, starting from June 19, 2020.

Originally facing charges of premeditated murder and defeating the ends of justice, Pitch Black Afro’s trial resulted in his conviction for culpable homicide by Judge J Du Plessis.

Catherine Modisane’s body was discovered in a Johannesburg Bed and Breakfast on December 31, 2018, showing signs of blunt force trauma to the head.

In 2020, Judge Du Plessis found Pitch Black Afro to be lacking remorse for his unintentional killing of his fiancée.

The judge noted that despite apologizing to the deceased’s family, the artist denied key details of the incident. The court considered Pitch Black Afro’s contribution towards Catherine’s funeral expenses as a gesture of goodwill.
