Thapelo Lesley Makobela’s recent bullying left him in a state of shock and confusion.
The 28-year-old man has allegedly been bullied by well known rapper. The Alexandra-born Hip Hop musician, affectionately known as Lez, chose to take a stand against another rap artist, Ntiyiso Shaun Ngobeni.
Ngobeni is known as Shaun Blaque.
According to Lez, the bullying took place as a result of an altercation on social networks. The rappers had an exchange of words.
“I was bullied a lot in my childhood stages and I told myself I’ll always take a stand against any form of bullying because it’s a painful experience” said the musician.
It is alleged that on social networks, Shaun Blaque was seen asking Lez for a traditional rap battle and even inviting him in the ring for a physical fight.
It was not the first time that both had such a social altercation in which Shaun Blaque allegedly claimed to be “doper” and obtained more digit numbers than Lez.
Lez is part of the Hip Hop duet called the Turn Up Lords, formed by himself and Lebogang Donald Nkgadima, also known as Lebonator.
He may not yet have a solo profile, but through the duet, he has accomplished a great deal.
He did an opening up for Kwesta at the NASREC Youth Expo 2019, won “Rep yo Hood” on Yfm 3 times in a row, won the Alex Mall FIFA World Cup upcoming artist competition of 2018, and ranking number one on the “Ama Top 7” playlist on AlexFM for over 3 weeks.
Lez confirmed that he would release a Diss Song. The Song will be available on Slikouron and subsequently on each digital platform.
He also dedicated the track to all victims of abuse and asked them to take it as a form of motivation to always fight back.
Shaun Plaque was unavailable to comment on this issue. We sent SMS, a WhatsApp message and phoned the number, without success.
