The rising singer, his girlfriend, 9-year-old daughter, and an unidentified passenger were in the Volkswagen Polo when it collided with a truck on the R37 Road next to Smelters Mine in Limpopo

Speaking to Sunday World in an interview, Mpho said Shebeshxt was traveling from Polokwane to Lebwakgomo to drop off Onthatile and the mother of his child at her home, then head to perform at an ANC rally.

Chauke said she is certain her son is aware of his daughter’s passing due to his conversation, as he mentioned only his girlfriend.

“When I heard him talking only about his girlfriend, I thought maybe he was not aware until yesterday when he mentioned to his friends that he was aware that his daughter is no more,” said Chauke.

Shebeshxt suffered a broken leg, an abdominal fracture, and head injuries; he’s receiving treatment and undergoing tests.
