The SA’s hiphop music community has been thrown into sadness by the announcement of the death of hiphop artiste HHP.
Everyone was devastated by HHP’s death, said Chana, who had visited HHP’s home to pay his respects. Well-known publicist and HHP’s wife Lerato Sengadi had earlier confirmed his death to TshisaLIVE from the scene. The cause of death remained unknown.
Jabulani Tsambo‚ who was popularly known as HHP‚ had in the past opened up about suffering from depression. Two years ago, SowetanLIVE reported that he had admitted to attempting suicide three times in 2015 and that he had visited an online suicide website in an attempt to help him get information on how to end his life.
Those close to the star, including AKA, DJ Cleo, Cassper Nyovest and Rouge flooded Twitter with messages of condolences. TshisaLIVE understands that Nyovest, who was HHP’s protégé, was shattered by his death and was not taking calls from the media.
