Musician Vusi Nova recovering after traumatic hijacking

Afro-pop musician Vusi Nova is still traumatised following his attack along with another band member on Friday morning.

EWN reporter Mia Lindeque says Nova is now recovering at home and doesn't want to talk to anyone. Those close to him have been saying he looks like he does not seem to fully comprehend what has happened to him, she adds.

Lindeque says Nova and his band members will be getting counseling in a few days to help them deal with the ordeal.

They are doing fine now and police have taken statements...

What we do know is that the Range Rover in which they were kidnapped is still missing. They are still trying to track it down.

According to sources, Nova was dropped in Soweto and he made his to a police station. He was stripped naked and beaten before he was dropped off.

Lindeque says the record label spokesperson said the police had told them not to speak to the media.
