Schwartz was on his way to visit his mother, Ina Engelbrecht at the Wilgeheuwel hospital in Roodepoort when three men jumped out of their car with weapons. "Just been held up 3 guys 3 guns: crotch, chest and one in my mouth - in hospital parking area," the singer shared on Twitter.

"They are very very dangerous. Seems they after Rolex’s," Schwartz added.

The men allegedly arrived in a luxury vehicle and took the singer's wallet and Rolex watch before fleeing.

In an interview with Huisgenoot, Schwartz said that the robbery made him think about the philosophical things. "It was so surreal and the weirdest thing. One thinks, what will happen if he fires the gun in my mouth, or will he miss my heart?"
