HHP’s wife Lerato Sengadi has filed papers to halt the funeral of the rapper from taking place this weekend. According to SowetanLIVE, Lerato applied for an interdict to stop her father in law “Robert Tsambo” from burying the body of the late Motswako rapper in Mafikeng.
The publication further stated that in the application filed, his wife is demanding that Robert Tsambo cancel the Jabba’s funeral and handover his corpse to her.
Hip hop Pantsula’s family released a statement soon after HHP’s death was confirmed in which they said they did not recognise Lerato Sengadi as their son’s widow.
“She argues, in the papers, that she entered into a customary marriage with HHP, real name Jabulani Tsambo, in 2016 and therefore has the full rights to bury her husband,” – SowetanLIVE reports.
“The Respondent [Tsambo], and/or those acting on his instruction, is order forthwith provide to the Application full details regarding the whereabouts of the remains of the deceased,” read the court papers.
According to the publication, HHP’s funeral was supposed to take place this Saturday.
