    Limpopo sensation Shebeshxt one step closer to recovery after being discharged from hospital

    Lebowakgomo born rapper, Katlego “Shebeshxt” Chauke, is finally back on the headlines.

    The controversial artist from Limpopo was discharged from Netcare Pholoso Hospital last week Tuesday and is reportedly working towards a full recovery with his family at home.

    He was hospitalised for a month following a tragic car accident that claimed the life of his nine-year-old daughter, Onthatile. Although he survived, he sustained severe injuries and is reportedly in a traumatised state.

    The family lawyer and spokesperson, Lot Ramusi, told reporters that the artist will need support and trauma counselling.

    “Shebeshxt is devastated, and he’ll be in trauma counselling together with his girlfriend over the loss of their daughter. Emotionally he is not OK, which is obvious from what they have endured with a loss of life. At the moment he is focusing on exercises and regaining his mental health,” he said.

    Shebeshxt is struggling to come to terms with the fatal tragedy that befell his family on the 8th of June. He was travelling to his girlfriend’s home, where he was going to drop her and his daughter, before making his way to an ANC Siyanqoba rally concert in Lebowakgomo before his evening was cut short by a head on collision with a truck.

    His daughter, Onthatile, was peacefully laid to her final place of rest on the 22nd of June. Shebeshxt was able to see her remains in a white Disney themed casket, but sadly could not go to the burial site as he was still in hospital.

    Her school, Northern Academy in Polokwane, released a statement offering condolences to the family of their grade 3 pupil.

    “Our Northern Academy family is deeply affected by this loss,” the school said.

    “During this difficult time, we extend our heartfelt condolences to Onthatile’s family, friends and those who knew her. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they navigate this unimaginable loss.”

    Despite the controversy that seems to follow Shebeshxt, the artist deserves space to heal and grieve.

    His fans took to X to show support for the beloved artist and his family, here’s what they had to say…

    @MissBhoza posted, “My thoughts are with Shebeshxt’s family as they lay their daughter Onthatile to rest today. Knowing my Lebowakgomo people as supportive & warm will come out in numbers to show this family warmth during this dark time. #RIPOnthatile”

    @IplugNayi posted, “Heartbreaking news. Glad to hear Shebeshxt has been discharged, but my deepest condolences for the loss of his daughter. Wishing him strength and healing during this incredibly difficult time.”
