Hip Hop Pantsula's sudden passing brought with it a series of family disputes that played out in the media 

First, it was claimed that Lerato Sengadi was not his wife. Sengadi then took the family to court in an effort to halt Jabulani "Jabbas" Tsambo's funeral, claiming that she was, in fact, his wife.

On Friday, the court ruled that Sengadi was recognised as HHP's "customary wife" but ruled that the funeral would not be postponed. 

HHP, who died on 24 October, was laid to rest in his hometown of Mahikeng on Saturday.

The judge also ruled that Sengadi had rights  to HHP's Randpark Ridge, which he accepted as the couple's matrimonial home.

Now the family's spokesperson has taken to social media, claiming that HHP's house has been illegally occupied and the late rapper's son has been denied access to the property.

Nkululeko Ncana on Monday tweeted: " Barely hours after his father’s funeral, #HHP’s son has been illegally booted out of his father’s house after instructions were given to locksmiths to move in between 12midnight -1am. #CustomaryWife (sic)

Ncana also revealed that a case of breaking and entering had been opened with Honeydew police station. 

"A case of breaking and entering has been opened with Honeydew police station. #HHP’s son’s stuff outside, amongst the stuff is his school uniform and books. #CustomaryWife sent some heavies with questionable hygiene habits, and the cops saying we’re trespassing!" he tweeted.

After the Friday's court appearance, Sengadi posted on her Instagram page that she did the court hearing for all widows  who had been sidelined by their in-laws at the time of the death of their partners.

Today was bigger than me! Motho always saw greatness in me that I sometimes didn’t see in myself. He always said I was born to be great and felt almost undeserving of being loved by such greatness. but the feeling was mutual! He has catapulted me to the level of greatness that only a union blessed by the most High could. • • • This victory is not just mine. I am not the first that this has happened to! Which is why I am fired up and encouraged by the spirits of all the widows who have been marginalized by patriarchal in-laws in moments of grief and stripped of their dignity and the very basic need to grieve. Our grandmothers, mothers, aunts, sisters, cousins, best friends! • • • To all the women who choose to ridicule me for doing what is right; I pray that this never happens to u or ur daughter or ur best friend etc but if it does u will remember me and know that u can fight for what is right. • • • U don’t love someone because it’s convenient and easy. No! You love them because even when loving them isn’t convenient you will STILL fight for what is right for them. • • • Motho didn’t marry no punk! I am brave! I am a warrior! I am a Queen. #IAmHisWife! #IWillNotCower

IOL tried calling Ncana and Sengadi to confirm the charges but neither of them answered their phones.
