In recent times however, he seemed to be in a much better place, even releasing the record “Feels Good To Be Back,” while plans were also in top gear for the premiere of his last album.
In the past year, HHP was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the SATMA Awards which was hosted in Mihkeng Bokone Bophirima Province.
The recognition of the Mafikeng-born rapper was in appreciation of his contribution to the game and the culture, as well as the growth of the industry in South Africa with several albums and awards under his belt.
Plus, his era saw the growth and success of several other Maftown artists, who have also now gone on to leave their footprints on the sands of time.
While the news of HHP’s passing continues to develop, his wife and publicist already confirmed the sad news in a phone chat with TshisaLIVE:
“Yes, yes, it’s true. I am with the family at the moment,” said a traumatized Sengadi.
Other acts in the industry including AKA, Da L.E.S, Cassper Nyovest, Nasty C, Rouge and several others have already reacted to the unfortunate news as well.
Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Jabulani “HHP” Tsambo and we hope they find the strength to pull through this unfortunate event.
