Limpopo artist Shebeshxt has responded to a video of him allegedly pointing a gun at a fan during one of his performances.

Real name, Lehlogonolo Katlego Chauke, Shebeshxt, has previously been arrested for attempted murder and assault. A recent video shows the musician taking a gun from his backpack and pointing it at a fan.

He was later shown leaving the stage in the same video surrounded by bodyguards. Social media users have since urged the fan to come forward and open a case against the artist. Pointing a firearm at someone in a public place is prohibited under the firearms act.


But in a video posted over the weekend, Shebeshxt has defended his actions.

“You act like you know me and you start to disrespect me [referring to the fan],” he said. 

“I am still going to deal with you. If 99 people start to disrespect me, I will deal with the 100th one. I will deal with all those who disrespect me one by one. You disrespect me, you ruin things for me and all that.

“I am always told Shebe doesn’t beat up people, but I am human too. If someone wants to mess with me I must just leave them because people will say I beat up people. I refuse, you can say whatever you want,” he said. 

“When these people provoke me there’s always no video of them doing that, but when I respond that’s what is going to trend.”

In June 2023, the controversial artist was remanded in custody after allegedly stabbing three people. He 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 in April last year.
