Zimdancehall artist, Soul Jah Love, real name Soul Musaka, is reported to have turned violent and gone on a rampage after taking an undisclosed drug. The dancehall chanter turned violent and assaulted his wife, fellow dancehall musician Bounty Lisa, real name Lisa Musenyi, using fists and an iron bar. Soul Jah Love accused his wife of infidelity and of carrying another man’s child. However, Bounty Lisa disputed the accusation saying that she was not even pregnant and blamed the unknown drug for causing Soul Jah Love to become paranoid.
Speaking to the Daily News, Bounty Lisa said:
He threw my bags out of the house, dragged me into the house and started hitting me with an iron bar.
He sent his brother to buy a pregnancy test kit whose results were negative. Everybody in the house saw the result but I was already being assaulted.
Problems started around October last year when he began taking this particular drug and would allege there were people in the house but many of us who were living with him in the house did not see these people
Bounty Lisa later reported the assault at Rhodesville Police Station in Harare and the couple was later counselled at the station. Bounty is reported to have forgiven her husband. Bounty Lisa’s father Phineas Musenyi said that his child will not be returning to her husband’s place until the matter is resolved together with his relatives. Soul Jah Love paid $9 000 lobola for his longtime sweetheart Bounty Lisa in August last year.
