Second accident

This is the second serious car accident the musician has been involved in this year, following a lucky escape in January when his new Golf GTI was written off.

Four months ago Shebeshxt expressed his gratitude for a second chance at life on social media, sharing images of his mangled vehicle.

“Otherwise, ‘ke rata kereke I’m blessed by G.O.D!’ Thank you Lordddsxhta!” the rapper said in a post.

In April, the rapper treated himself to a brand-new luxury car, proudly sharing a photo of himself receiving the keys at the dealership.

He also posted a snapshot of the receipt, boasting about his hefty cash purchase of R505,674.99, on Facebook.
