A rapper hitting a fan with a bottle may not count as something usual, so when South African rapper Shebeshxt did just that during a recent performance, many South Africans were aghast.
In the now-viral clip, the songster could be seen arguing with a concertgoer during a performance. Things had gotten heated and he threw a bottle at the person while a man who seemed to be security tried to intervene. He continued his performance soon after.
The clip left many South Africans appalled and in shock and some called him out for his behaviour, warning him that he risks burying his music career as a result of being too prone to anger and unable to control himself. You can check out the clip below.

While some South Africans were shocked and hit him hard with criticisms, some of his core fans rose to his defence, describing him as a changed man who merely acted on the anger of the moment. As far as they are concerned, this is just an isolated case and people should not judge him based on that count alone.
Well, time will tell soon enough how this is a one-off storm of anger or whether history will repeat itself. Stay tuned.
