Local rap group Skwatta Kamp is making a comeback, and will be releasing a greatest hits album along with six new tracks.
The "Umoya" rappers are planning on releasing a tribute song to their late crew member Nkululeko “Flabba” Habedi, who was stabbed to death by his girlfriend, Sindisiwe Manqele in 2015, before they drop the new album.
Speaking to Drum Magazine, Silkour shared why the rap crew decided to honour their fallen bandmate.
“The title of the song is 'Conversations with Flabba' because in the song we all speak to him directly. The track makes you feel something and anyone who was a fan of Flabba and Skwatta Kamp will be really moved. If Flabba had to come in the studio while we were recording the song, he would remember why he joined the group in the first place.”
Silkour also stated that the death of Flabba took a toll on the whole group and their familial bond took a knock because of it.
“Flabba’s death was hard on us and no one in the group knew Sindisiwe personally for her to come and apologise for what she did. Fact is, Flabba is not coming back and she has to live with herself – which is harder than being judged by us,” Slikour said.
'Conversations with Flabba' is set to be released on Friday with their official Instagram page sharing a sneak peek on them in the studio.
