South African artist, Shebeshxt, gained fame as the first-ever guest on Podcast & Chill to hit 1m views within just two days.
Podcast & Chill celebrated reaching a million subscribers earlier this year and marked another historic moment on November 18th when Shebeshxt appeared on the podcast.
“Ladies and Gentlemen We’ve unlocked another HISTORIC MOMENT on #podcastandchilll. Shebeshxt episode hit 1 million views in 2 DAYS. We’d like to thank Shebeshxts team and fans for making this possible and we’d love to thank the chillers,” the announcement read.
However, his recent notoriety stems from a video circulating on social media. He was seen intentionally hitting a fan with a glass bottle during one of his performances.
A tweep posted the video of Shebeshxt’s bottle-throwing incident, sparking discussions on social media about the timing of the footage. While some argued it was an old clip that didn’t warrant resurfacing, others claimed it was a recent incident.
Earlier this year, the NPA spokesperson in Limpopo revealed that Shebeshxt faced charges at the Lebwakgomo Magistrate’s Court. It included two counts of assault, malicious damage to property, and attempted murder.
Additionally, the musician had reportedly faced charges in the past for discharging a firearm. Shebeshxt’s recent actions have overshadowed his podcast milestone and musical achievements, placing him under public scrutiny for his off-stage behavior.
