Hospitalised musician Shebeshxt’s family sees Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema as a “Good Samaritan” for helping them pay for his hospital bills.

This comes after the controversial Limpopo-born rapper was involved in a car accident on the R37 road next to Smelters Mine in Limpopo on Saturday, 8 June.

The crash occurred when the Twerka hitmaker’s Volkswagen Polo collided with a truck and overturned.


According to a source who spoke to Sunday World, Malema was contacted to assist the artist – real name Lehlogonolo Chauke – who was reportedly left unattended at a public hospital.

“Shebeshxt does not have medical aid, so they took him to a public hospital, where he was not assisted for some time,” said the source.

“Fearing that he could lose his life, Julius Malema was then called, and he demanded that Shebe be taken to Netcare Pholoso Hospital, a private healthcare facility in Polokwane, to get medical help.”

In March this year, Shebeshxt and Malema shared a moment on stage when they danced together during the EFF manifesto in Soweto.


Speaking to the publication, Mpho Chauke – who is Shebeshxt’s mother – thanked the EFF leader for his generous act.

“I am so grateful for Malema and what he did for my son,” she said.

She further thanked the everyone else for the support during this dark period in their lives.

“Even the MEC here in Polokwane has been supporting us so much and is making things easier for us. People here have shown me how much they love my son, and I am grateful.”


Although Shebeshxt survived the horrific accident, he sadly lost his nine-year-old daughter – Onthatile Chuene – whom he was travelling with.

The young girl’s passing was confirmed by Tidimalo Chuene – who is the spokesperson for the transport department in Limpopo.

“A 9-year-old female passenger from the Polo passed away while the driver and another passenger sustained serious injuries. The cause of the incident is still under investigation,” Chuene told ZiMoja.

Northern Academy, the school that Shebeshxt’s daughter attended, released a statement on her passing.

“It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Onthatile Chuene, a cherished Grade 3 learner at our school. Onthatile passed away on 8 June 2024, and our entire Northern Academy family is deeply affected by this loss.

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