Gauteng police spokesperson, Lieutenant-Colonel Mavela Masondo, said five suspects were arrested.

The suspects were charged with possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition and discharging of firearm in a public place.

According to a police report seen by News24, one of the suspects is a 29-year-old Amapiano deejay.

The Amapiano star is believed to be one of the five other people who were detained after firing guns during the burial of late Hector “DJ Vintos” Buthelezi at Westpark Cemetery in Joburg.

They are expected to appear at the Brixton Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

Buthelezi was the owner of Soweto-based lifestyle butchery, popularly known as Banana Land in Jabulani.

The establishment was known for a weekly event called Recovery Tuesdays, which saw big names such as actor and DJ Thuli P, DBN Gogo, Mr JazziQ and Stokie attending.
JMPD said three unlicensed firearms were recovered at the scene.
