According to reports, Zimbabwe Republic Police detained ChillSpot producer Levels after his ex-girlfriend Shashl reported a rape to the police.
The Zimdancehall producer is being held at Borrowdale Police Station awaiting his court appearance.
Levels is accused of raping his ex-girlfriend and fellow musician Shashl.
Earlier reports had indicated that Levels had fled to South Africa to evade arrest. Local tabloid H-Metro reported that sources close to the Zimdancehall producer had confirmed that Levels had skipped the border into Zimbabwe’s southern neighbour.
The sources who spoke to the publication on condition of anonymity had indicated that Levels was trying in vain to get Shashl to agree to an out-of-court settlement.
“Levels cannot be located or reached on his mobile phone,” said the source.
“He was last seen at Borrowdale Police Station with Shashl for counselling a day before the latter lodged a police report against him.
“It is from that meeting where Levels sensed danger, the consequences of the nude videos, and decided to flee,” said the source.
“Police are investigating a case involving a Chillspot Records worker alleged to have raped a musician after inviting her to his house sometime in July 2021,” said Insp Chakanza.
“The accused person and the complainant were not yet in a relationship but were working together in music at Chillspot Records in Mbare.
“On an unknown date in July 2021, the accused was reported to have asked the complainant to pass through his place of residence to take his car since they were using the complainant’s car and they were coming from the studio.
“When they were at the accused’s place, they got inside the house and, while inside the house, they started kissing, at the same time the accused pushed the complainant into his bedroom.
“The complainant stopped kissing and informed the accused that she wanted to get home before curfew time.
“As the complainant prepared to leave the bedroom, the accused seized her and raped her.”
“After the incident, the complainant fled the site and returned home.”
“The situation came to light when the accused shared some naked films and photos of himself and the complainant on social media.”
“The complainant stated that the reason for mailing the nudes and sex film was because they had broken up, which did not sit well with the accused,” said Insp Chakanza.
