Lerato was accused of using HHP’s name for publicity by Seabelo Modibe who is a former business partner to the late rapper.

Lerato is HHP’s customary wife, issued a statement on Tuesday and said she is the one who applied and submitted all relevant paperwork to the South African Music Awards and RISA.

“On 21 March, I as Jabba ‘s customary wife, applied and submitted all relevant paperwork to the South African Music Awards & RISA for the opportunity that Jabba may be considered for the Lifetime Achievement Award. On 10 May I was informed by email that Jabba would be honoured with this prestigious award. I am in possession of the email sent to me, as well as the official acceptance letter.” – says part of the statement.

“This award is to further cement Jabba’s icon status within the music and entertainment industry, and it is unfortunate that Mr Modibe would use such a celebratory occasion to mare Jabba’s illustrious career as well as ‘villainise’ myself,” the statement reads in part.
