Is Lehlogonolo Chauke, shebeshxt out of jail?

In August 2023, Lehlogonolo Chauke, also known as Shebeshxt, was granted bail by the Lebowakgomo Magistrate’s Court after appearing on various criminal charges, including assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and attempted murder.

Shebeshxt, a controversial musician from Limpopo, sustained facial injuries when a fan hit him with a beer bottle during a performance in Mohodi, Limpopo over the weekend.


Shebeshxt, whose real name is Lehlogonolo Chauke, did not receive medical attention as his management team is allegedly trying to avoid the authorities since he was released from prison less than eight days ago.

He spent almost four months in jail for alleged violent spats, including two counts of attempted murder. Shebeshxt, who has been dubbed the bad boy of Bolo house music and amapiano due to clashes with the law, was allegedly assaulted by a fan at a tavern in a new development area, Machachaneng in Mohodi, Bochum in the middle of his performance.

When reached for a statement on Monday, Shebeshxt’s agitated manager, Kholofelo Mawifelena, asserted that the musician is in good condition. “Shebeshxt is fine… why does it sound like you are fishing for controversy.

I am his manager and not his spokesperson,” Mawifelena stated. The musician, known for popular tracks such as “Monateng,” was unavailable for comment as his phone went unanswered on Tuesday. However, he took to his Facebook page on Sunday after the incident, acknowledging his injuries and expressing his decision not to retaliate to avoid returning to jail.

Shebeshxt, also known as President Ya Ma2K, is well-liked among the youth for his music, which often contains aggressive lyrics and allusions to his rivals. He was released on bail less than a week ago after appearing at the Lebowakgomo magistrate’s court on various criminal charges, including assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and attempted murder.

The musician, who has been receiving numerous bookings since his release, is also facing two counts of discharging a firearm after allegedly firing four shots in the air at a family home in Ga-Mamaola village, Limpopo, on April 10. Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi, the National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson in Limpopo, stated that the controversial musician is expected to return to court on September 6.
