Lerato Sengadi will celebrate her birthday and other special moments without Jabba. It has been a tough week for HHP’s loved ones and fans. The rapper passed away last Wednesday at his home in Johannesburg, and will be laid to rest in his hometown of Mahikeng this coming weekend.
Speaking at his memorial service in Newtown, Johannesburg this afternoon, Lerato Sengadi said: “I’ve lost a husband, my best friend, my road, my comedian, my selector, my favourite artist, my scrabble mate, the love of my life, motho waka. I loved you when you didn’t love yourself. I loved you when you thought you didn’t deserve to be loved. I loved you when others thought you were unlovable. I loved you when others were scared to love you.”
She added that she loved him through happiness and pain. “Highs and lows, darkness and light, fear and pride. I find solace in knowing that even in your last, your very very last breath, you knew that.
