Broken Leg, Abdominal Fracture: Shebeshxt’s Mother Gives Update

Mpho Chauke, the mother of hospitalised rapper Shebeshxt, has opened up about her son’s condition following a horrific car crash. The musician, real name Lehlogonolo Chauke, was involved in an accident on the R37 road next to Smelters Mine in Limpopo on Saturday, 8 June.

Shebeshxt’s Injuries

Doctors at Netcare Pholoso Hospital in Limpopo are working to determine the full extent of Shebeshxt’s injuries. According to his mother, Shebeshxt suffered a broken leg, an abdominal fracture, and head injuries when his Volkswagen Polo collided with a truck and overturned.

“The doctors are still trying to figure out the extent of the injuries but he went to the theatre this morning. So we should know after that,” Mpho Chauke told Sunday World.

The Accident

The accident occurred while Shebeshxt was traveling from Polokwane to Lebowakgomo with his nine-year-old daughter, Onthatile Chuene, and his long-time partner, Kholofelo Chuene. Tragically, Onthatile Chuene died in the crash. The family was en route to drop off Kholofelo and Onthatile before Shebeshxt headed to perform at an ANC Siyanqoba Rally celebration concert in Lebowakgomo scheduled for Sunday, 9 June.

Viral Videos

On social media, videos have surfaced showing the aftermath of the accident. One video shows the covered body of Shebeshxt’s daughter next to the damaged vehicle, while another depicts the rapper lying on the ground, bandaged and moaning in agony as paramedics treat his injuries.

Community Support

The Limpopo Artists Movement (LAM) has issued a statement expressing condolences to Shebeshxt and his family. “We cannot imagine the pain and grief they must be experiencing, but we want them to know that they are not alone,” the statement reads.

The artistic community stands in solidarity with Shebeshxt, offering comfort and support during this difficult time. LAM representatives have visited Shebeshxt’s family and the hospital, urging other artists and fans to send messages of comfort.

“Let us rally around them and offer a shoulder to lean on in their time of need. May Shebe’s daughter rest in peace, and may the family find strength in the love and support that surround them,” the statement concluded.


The accident has left the music community in shock and mourning. As Shebeshxt recovers from his injuries, he and his family continue to receive an outpouring of support and condolences from fans, fellow musicians, and the broader community.
