Family, friends and fans of Jabulani Tsambo, also known as HHP are gathering in Newtown, Johannesburg today to pay tribute to the late musician. The veteran Hip Hop artist passed away last week Wednesday allegedly succumbing to suicide and ultimately taking his own wife.
Hosted by Stoane Seate and Lee Kusumba, the memorial service is live streamed by eNCA and has seen speakers each take a turn to celebrate the life of Jabba.
Some of the speakers included his childhood friends, his cousin Zanele Tsambo and Prof from Motswako group, Bafitlile. His wife, Lerato Sengodi also spoke of her love for him and how she will fight for his legacy and honour, even in death.
From the industry, Cassper Nyovest, Kabomo, Amu and SugarSmakxx were also some who shared fond memories about Jabba’s strong will and tenacious attitude.
Another memorial service will be held in his hometown of Mafikeng on Thursday. His funeral will be on Saturday.
Live Stream the memorial service.
ICYMI: Nadia Nakai First SA Female Rapper To Perform AT SXSW Fest In Texas
Nadia Nakai to make history as first female rapper to perform at SXSW fest in Texas
This year is shaping up nicely for most of the artists this year who are starting the year off on a strong foot. With her highly anticipated debut album on the way, Nadia Nakai seems to be carving her own way.
She recently announced that she will be performing at the distinguished international music festival, South By South West (SXSW), in March and she will be the first female from South Africa to do so.
Nadia Nakai is one of the few artists who have been closing major deals last year and began trailblazing her own path outside of music. This includes the Castle Lite advertisement as well as her Bragga fashion line with Sportscene. So it is natural for her 2019 to begin on such a great page.
Bragga went onto her social media to announce that she was chosen to be part of the festival.
“Im SOOO excited!!! I’ve been selected as 1 of the South African artist to showcase at @sxsw in Austin Texas in the United States !!!! I can’t wait!!!!!!!!!”
Over the past year or so Bragga took some time out from dropping music and instead has been doing shows and perfecting her set so we are confident that she will absolutely kill the SXSW set. We also hope that Cassper Nyovest and Tshego also makes an appearance in the show to officially put Family Tree on a global scale.
Earlier last year, she took The Dome by storm when she was announced as one of the opening acts at the Castle Lite Unlocks concert. She shared the stage with Chance The Rapper, Frank Casino and Shane Eagle among many others.
Other artists who have performed and completely impressed at the SXSW festival include Kid X, Kwesta and AKA.
