Okmalum­kool­kat is back from prison

Entertainment March 8, 2016

South African rapper, Simiso Zwane popularly known as Okmalum­kool­kat was charged with assault and sexually harassing a woman on the 15th of January in Australia – It was reported the assaulted fellow artist was asleep in her hotel room.

The 32-year-old rapper, born in KZN (KwaZulu Natal Province) was sentenced to 6 months after he was found guilty. The incident took place at the 2016 MONA FOMA cultural festival. He was set to serve it at the Australian island of Tasmania.

Later on the statement was released by his PR agency.

At this stage, we have limited information regarding the judgement on Simiso Zwane in Australia, but with no previous legal charges or history of any violence whatsoever and knowing Simiso as we and most of you all do, we can say that the news comes as a huge surprise and one which has truly rocked us all. Having said this, we are by no means disputing the woman’s claims which are taken incredibly seriously and must abide by the courts ruling. Our thoughts are with all affected and who will continue to be affected by this terrible situation

We will update you on the progress of this incident. Your patience during this period will be greatly appreciated. We ask that all queries be directed to his PR Team at Stamp Communications.

However Okmalumkoolkat served only one month in Tasmania. His PR representatives, Stamp Communications, has confirmed that Okmalumkoolkat whose real name is Simiso Zwane, is back in South Africa after serving a one-month sentence.

Zwane speaks for the first time prior the incident.

Hi Tribe,

I am writing this letter to my fans as Simiso Zwane, not as Okmalumkoolkat. I say this because it was Simiso Zwane who was out there in that Tasmanian prison.

Now I know there has been speculation and misconception about my case. I was charged with assault with intent of indecency and assault with intent. I fully understand the magnitude of this issue. I have had time by myself to reflect on things most important to me and I am working through everything. I have served my time in jail in another continent and have endured hardships of the sentence that was handed to me. I would like to move on with my life.

I am sincerely sorry to everybody that has been affected by this. I pleaded guilty for a number of reasons, one of which was that I was in a foreign country and was advised by my legal aid to do so. I hope the public and my fans will accept that I will one day, in my own way, explain the events as they happened from my perspective. 
This hasn’t just affected Okmalumkoolkat, but it has affected Simiso Zwane, my whole family, my friends and my team who have realised the fact that I am also human. I would like to thank everybody that stood by me and who has been really supportive. I sincerely appreciate that. 
Lastly, I would like to ask the media and all those who have opinions on this issue to respect my privacy and the privacy of my family and friends. I ask everybody to understand that I need time to process, heal and move on with my life and career in the best possible way.
